  • Over the gray Ribbon of the River under a heavy sky St settled heroes of ancient legends and curses, guests from the afterworld. Mysterious and deep, full of ancient serenity, keepers of ancient knowledge, they became a symbol of Russia's northern capital, guardians of its river approaches. How could they deliver here? What is behind the letters adorn their pedestals? and why otkoloty their beards? According to legends, they leave at night their marble pedestals and walk along the promenade. And while the University Embankment, it is easy to believe.

  • Located on University Embankment, Egyptian Sphinxes from Egypt. Sphynxes more than 3500 years, before they stood in front of the Temple in Egypt. Here bring tourists on buses, selling souvenirs.

  • Recently visited this wonderful place, on the banks of the Neva River. These Egyptian Sphinxes in the midst of the northern capital of Russia! According to legend, if you long to look at them, you can see how the Sphynx is changing facial expression, someone believes this ancient Egyptian magic and envelops this place with many legends, and someone just human imagination, in any case, you decide! By the way, Sphinxes guarding the griffons with mouth ajar, just whisper in his ear dearest wish and it will come true, or you can pat on the head at the same time putting the second hand in Griffin's mouth and la voie wish will come true actually!) With the University Embankment offers stunning views of the opposite bank where you can see and Shimmers in the Sun dome of St. Isaac's Cathedral ^ ^ I advise to dress poteplej, on the waterfront in the Northern cold and still turn out cool selfi) Recommend!
