Admiralteisky

The Admiralteisky is the area just west of the City Center. At its center is the famous golden-yellow Admiralteistvo, or Admiralty building. This neighborhood is also home to Decembrists' Square, the site where roughly 3,000 army officers revolted on December 14, 1825. The Bronze Horseman, one of the city's most famous monuments, is located in the middle of the square—it's dedicated to Peter the Great.
