  • Walked along the Alexander Garden on its outer side and drew attention to the Admiralty. Well, Yes: the Spire with a boat, statues of women, holding balloons, columns-all as usual. Probably, if allowed inside, impressions would have more.

  • We could see the Admiralty building several times as we had the property near there: to have dinner we had to see him, to go to the Hermitage, to reach the Neva, to return from Vasilevsky Island. The imposing building is painted yellow and you notice from far away due to its high Golden Spire over 70 meters and at the top of which there is a wind vane in the shape of a small ship. The Admiralty was built by Peter I and dates at the beginning of 1800. We made pictures wherever we were: when we were above the Cathedral of Saint Isaac or when we were traveling by boat on the Neva. The time of day when the Palace seemed more magic has been around at 22.30 when it was wrapped by the lights of sunset (must be a clear day!): it was a show before the darkness hid and then "reappear" in its Majesty already at about 2.45 a.m. in the morning. We were in St. Petersburg during the white nights that make this building and the entire city great.

  • The building of the Admiralty is one of the most impressive if not the most impressive of the city, with an endless façade that exceeds 400 m long! Symbol of maritime ambitions of Peter the great, has a tall Spire more than 70 m I want to define the true beacon of St. Petersburg as it stands and can be seen everywhere; from arsenal, the building is now a seat of the high school of the Navy and indeed one of the most striking is the way visitors go to enter and exit of young men in uniform who frequent it. Impossible to miss in the city centre!
