Admiralty Building Tours and Activities

349 reviews

The Admiralty building is one of St. Petersburg's oldest structures. It was built by Peter the Great and originally served as a dockyard. It once housed the Admiralty Board, which was in charge of ship building and eventually became part of the ministry of the navy. Some sections were built in the 1700s while other additions were constructed in the 1800s.

Unfortunately visitors today won't be able to see the building in its original state. Many of the statues were destroyed in 1860 when the Orthodox church declared them to be pagan. The building was also damaged during the blockade of Leningrad and was attacked by the Germans in World War II. The Admiralty building does still have lots of sculptures and reliefs to admire. There is also a 240 foot golden spire with its weather vane, a little ship, that sits on top of it and is one of the city's most recognizable landmarks. The original is in the Naval Museum, so the one you see here today is a replica. The building now houses the naval college.

5 day grand St.Petersburg tour

5 day grand St.Petersburg tour

This is a comprehensive tour of St.Petersburg for intellectually curious, and though it is not a strict term for me, please do not ask me if you just like small talk, I might not have particular social graces, but if you are really interested in Russian history, I am your man. Of course it doesn't matter if you wanna go deep into it, or just do highlights and scratch the surface, each tour would be tailored to your particular demands even on the go, but you have to give me a little credit and need at least 5 days to do it justice. And the more time you give me, the more interesting and fascinating it becomes for you. We are not gonna rush around, cramming information, but take it gradually so by the end of it you would be able to familiarize yourself with Russian history and learn not just who, when and for how much but why. I am very flexible with no downtime, and unlike other guides offer itineraries that not set in stone, so you can choose to see things that amaze or educate.
