The One of St. Petersburg most oldest and, arguably, most historically important buildings, the Admiralty building serves as the focal point of Nevsky Prospekt, Gorokhovaya Ulitsa, and Voznesenskiy Prospekt. While its location at the convergence of some of St. Petersburg's most epochal streets embodied Peter's emphasis and, some would say, obsession with the importance of northern capital's maritime might, it served a far more important and reali... Read more
Saint Petersburg : Bronze Horseman
The most famous statue of Peter the Great was immortalised as the Bronze Horseman in the epic poem by Alexander Pushkin. With his horse (representing Russia) rearing above the snake of treason, Peter's enormous statue was sculpted over 12 years for Catherine the Great by Frenchman Etienne Falconet. Its inscription reads 'To Peter I from Catherine II – 1782'. The Bronze Horseman, an impressive monument to the founder of St Petersburg, Peter ... Read more

It was the setting of many events of worldwide significance. The architectura... Read more
Very early in the history of St. Petersburg the Strelka (spit) of the Vasilievsky Island, the largest island in the Neva delta, was intended to become the heart of downtown St Petersburg. Some of the buildings, such as the Customs House, still remind us today of Tsar Peter’s original intentions. Although the downtown area of the city eventually moved onto the left bank of the river, the architects of the early 19th century di... Read more
