What people are saying:

On both sides of the square of Vasily Port, there are two bow-shaped decorative columns, which are 32 meters high. They are the lighthouses for navigation of ships entering the port, called the Lasteri Column. The bow decoration on the ship is because in ancient Greece and Rome, people nailed the bows of defeated ships to columns as a symbol of victory in naval battles. On the granite base of the navigation lighthouse, there are four other statues that symbolize the four major rivers of Russia-Volga, Volkhov, Dnieper, and Neva that flows through St. Petersburg. The entire complex of buildings centered on the stock exchange is magnificent and beautiful. On major holidays, the lighthouse will be lit.
