What travelers say:

Tour to Russia, this stop came to St. Petersburg. The winter palace palace entrance has a big square, I came here when the winter, everywhere snow everywhere, white, in the square a carriage stopped for photography, of course, it is charged. As we were in a hurry, we did not have to go to someone to ask the price. The square was very empty, except for a monument, there was nothing to hide, in the peak season, it should be crowded, because it is one of the famous tourist attractions.

Additional Information

Introduction

Dvortsovaia Ploshchad', which means Palace Square, interfacing Nevsky Prospekt with Palace Bridge prompting Vasilievsky Island, is the focal city square of St Petersburg and of the previous Russian Empire. It was the setting of numerous occasions of overall importance, including the Bloody Sunday and the October Revolution of 1917. The soonest and most praised building on the square is the baroque white and azure Winter Palace of Russian tzars, which gave the square its name. Despite the fact that the neighboring structures are composed in the Neoclassical style, they flawlessly coordinate the royal residence in their scale, rhythm, and size.
