Admiralty Building Tours

star-5
7 Reviews
Admiralty Building
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.

Practical Info

The Admiralty building is located at 1, Admiralteyskiy Prospekt. The nearest metro station is Admiralteyskaya. 
Address: 1, Admiralteyskiy Prospekt, St Petersburg 191186, Russia

Peter the Great is the most famous Russian tsar and the first Russian emperor. He drastically changed the course of Russian history as we now speak of two main periods: before and after Peter. We will go on a short walk around the very centre of the city, though Peter never intended it to become the centre. You will find out about the plans Peter the Great managed to put into action, and about those that never came to life, about what stood in his way, and what sacrifices he had to make to reach his goals. We will start in the heart of Peter’s St. Petersburg, right in front of the Admiralty. We will take in views of the Neva River, talk about floods and their causes, walk through the former grounds of the Admiralty to finish our discussion of Peter’s role in history by the first monument in St. Petersburg which was dedicated to him: the Bronze Horseman.
