The architectural ensembles of Petersburg

Architectural Ensembles

The architectural ensembles of Petersburg are its calling card. The architecture of Petersburg combines different styles and traditions. It is well known that the city was erected as contrasting to the Old Russia and Moscow. Peter the Great wanted to create a city that would be a melting pot of nationalities and be closer to European culture. That?s why in Petersburg European styles and traditional Russian culture poured together in beautiful architectural ensembles.

The most part of the ensembles consist of squares, streets, parks, gardens and embankments. One can find in Petersburg such architectural styles of different ages such as baroque, classicism, rococo and modern. Such wonderful architectural complexes as Palace Square, the Square of Arts, Senate Square, Spit of Vasilievsky Island, Peter&Paul fortress and St. Isaac?s Square were created by famous foreign and Russian masters of architecture ? Rastrelli, Rossi, Trezzini, Voronikhin, Quarenghi, Starov and many others. The amazing ensemble of the Nevsky Prospect was being formed during the XVIII-XX centuries and that?s why at the prospect one can find all architectural styles.

Petersburg is really amazing tourists and travelers. Beautiful buildings, wide squares, green regular and landscape parks, gardens with fountains and sculptures, narrow pavements and granite embankments, drawbridges and monuments formed a unique look of the city.
