Mini Petersburg

I've always had a soft spot for miniatures, so when I came to be in Leningrad, I couldn't help but visit the bronze 'Mini Saint Petersburg' installation next to Gorkovskaya metro station in Alexander garden. Sure thing, a 1:40 scale is far from ours 1:12, but it's still better than 1:1!

These are the bronze miniatures of Petersburg's landmark one can take a look at (or even a walk for some!) here: Peter and Paul Fortress, Old Saint Petersburg Stock Exchange, Admiralty building, Saint Isaac's Cathedral, Winter Palace, Alexander Column, General Staff Building, Kazan Cathedral, Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood (Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ), Engineers' (Saint Michael's) Castle.

So, if you can't get a proper tour around the city but want to say 'Yes!' without lying to those who ask 'Have you seen Petersburg?', this small city can be a smart way to save your time.
