Metro Station o/s of Moscow Train Station

by celestecbg

While in St. Petersburg, I saw the Moscow train station and the metro station across the street/cirle. There was an oblisk with a star on the top in the center of the circle. I haven't been able to find out what it is called and what it represents. I've searched the web over and over again. Do you know what it is called?

Do you mean the one in the first photo on here? http://travel.webshots.com/album/201325879VYjkzG
I have a feeling that I was told it was a monument to the decembrists but I could very well have remembered that wrong!

An obelisk in the square near the Moscow Railway station was built in 1985 in honour to the city-hero of Leningrad - in the year of 40th anniversary of the finishing WW2. The author of this obelisk is Alexander Alymov.

P.S.Before the October revolution the equestrian statue of Russian Tsar Alexander III stood in this square (the author Paolo Trubetskoy) but it was removed after the revolution (in 1917) and now this statue is placed near Marble Palace (now the department of Russian Museum).

Letny Garden (Summer Garden).

by bugulma

Letny Sad was placed here in 1704 but that construction was completely destroyed in 1777 after the floods. The present view is since the beginning of XIX century. In the beginning of XIX century by the way it was a place where young people of the middle class came here seeking for the brides, it was a kind of procurer place when possible brides and grooms look at each other.

Russian Apartments 2

by sophiebeans

Here is the creepy staircase on the way up to the apartment. It looks like it has seen better days. I was told I could use the elevator if I wanted to, but to be careful because it often got stuck. Thanks for the tip. I'll stick to the stairs!

Peterhof Palace

by sue_stone

Peterhof Palace was built by Peter the Great, and sits proudly above the Grand Cascade of golden fountains, looking down the Water Avenue to the sea.

It was built between 1709 & 1724, but was then completely destroyed during WWII. Later it was reconstructed, using photos and maps in the 1950s.

A visit inside the palace cost around R240....and after paying for the hydrofoil and then admittance to the grounds...we were in 2 minds about paying more to go inside...and in hindsight wish that we didn't!

(There was also an additional charge to take photos in the palace)

There was a 30 minute queue to get inside the front door, to then queue to buy tickets, then queue to check bags in, then queue to get funny looking shoe covers, then queue to enter first section of palace....then queue to enter every further section of the palace...sigh...

We really weren't that impressed with the inside of the palace...I say spend your time enjoying the fountains and gardens, take plenty of photos and save your money for a nice lunch.

Daily except Monday and the last Tuesday of each month, 11:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
For details of how to get here, please refer to my transport tip.

St. Petersburg University

by Canadienne

Peter the Great first ordered a university to be built in 1724; since then, students have played a role in the shaping of the city and the country. Mendelev devised the table of elements here; Lenin complete a degree in law (as did Putin years later), and students have always participated in protests and revolts.

The camps today is a quiet and relatively traffic-free area. There were lots of students sprawling in the green spaces of the grounds, enjoying the sunshine and warm weather during our visit.
