Recommendation by Lemi

Enjoy a pleasant day out at St. Petersburg most prominent public space—Palace Square! Laid out by neoclassicist architect Carlo Rossi, it combines some of the grandest pieces of architecture in the world. On the north side, the Winter Palace stands in all its baroque glory; while the yellow and white General Staff building lies on the southern part of the square. Right in the middle, the Alexander Column (named after Alexander I) rises to commemorate Russia’s win in the Napoleonic Wars.
