  • Several times a year we past these gates to travel to Pushkin and Pavlovsk, and never ever stop to consider, the more done the photo. I do not understand pjaterochnyh (must go necessarily) and chetverochnyh (it may be worth making a detour, passing nearby). Even stop to explore the construction (this to me means 3 points) can not advise. Well, that does not spoil the surrounding picture-so 2.

Egyptian Sphinxes on University embankment at the Academy of fine arts-they look authentic and relevant, as guests, landed on the quay, and these gates-fake. Gates served as commemorative decoration entry into Alexander Park, often with their description they are called propilejami. And thumbs served karaulkami. In photos-confusion, presented several photos of these Sphinxes with University embankment in Saint Petersburg.
