Rostral column

St. Petersburg, Russia
4.9 / 17
rostral-column
The place where Vasilievsky Island divides the river. Neva into two parts and as if crashes into the water. There are many buildings of different eras and architectural styles, which makes this place a real open-air museum. Of particular interest are the rostral columns of red-brown color, decorated with ship's noses. The structures functioned as beacons for ships until the end of the 19th century.

Nice place to enjoy in the afternoon with a breeze slowly hitting your face. Many food trucks nearby, so no worry if you need any warm drink and snacks. Best place to solo traveller like me, but even better if you bring your love one here.
