Let's walk a little on this sunny day over Petrogradskaya Storona
starting from subway station Gor'kovskaya, along the Neva river on the Petrovskaya
Embankment, near the famous cruiser "Aurora", along the Karpovka river and
finish out trip at subway station Petrogradskaya.
23, Kronversky prospect. (But this prospect is know as
Maxim Gorky prospect as well. Six years is walking here to my institute)
is noteworthy because of the owl and the arch. It is built in the Northern Modern style.
Cathedral Mosque. It is very hard to make the pictures of
this building. I tried to do this several times before but only this time I've got
something acceptable. Closer views do not fit the whole building but you will try to move
away a little the surrounding buildings and trees are overshadowing the mosque.
Brant's mansion (built by Meltzer) and the details of the
arch - the lantern and the gates.
For those who are in doubts - it is the frog. Or
"shi-tza" (lion-frogs) in its original name. There are two of them and this one
was brought from abroad and installed on the embankment in 1907.
The mansion of the Grand Duke Nikolay Nikolaevich Jr. At
present time it is the Wedding Palace. It reminds me of Vitebsky railway station.
The sight from the stairs (close to the frog mentioned
above) to the Litejniy bridge.
Nakhimovskoe Uchilische (school). Former "Gorodskoy
Uchilischniy Dom" in the name of Peter The Great.
When I was making this picture
some man walking on the street told that the picture will be bad because I was shooting in
the direction of the sun. Not the best picture but there are even worse.
The central part with the small tower.
I think the name of this cruiser is know to everybody. It
is the view from the stern. I have "chosen" this view because all the way to
this point is was trying to reheat frozen batteries in pocket.
I made the picture of this not so noteworthy building (on
some small street) being under the pressure of my companions :)
The frozen Karpovka river. On the opposite bank you can see
on of the building of the Grenadersky Regiment.
Bolshoy prospect. The picture was made from the bridge over
the Karpovka river. Further, behind the turning you can observer Lev Tolstoy square.
Balconies, faces and lions.
"The house with the towers" and the Theater of
Miniature "Experiment" that is located in this building. The architect of that
building and of the building on the two previous shots is Belogrud.
We are on the Lev Tolstoy square. Here we finish our trip.
It is not the last trip! :)
