Admiralteysky district is one of the oldest districts of St. Petersburg
Admiralteysky district is located on the left bank of the Neva. The origin of its name goes back to 1704, when the shipyard and the Admiralty Fortress were built there.

A characteristic feature of the district is the diversity of its composition and the conditions of residential buildings, here the buildings of Peter the Great's epoch coexist with unique new buildings, and the communal apartments — with fashionable apartments and mansions. It is noteworthy that some of the buildings are of the same age as the city, that's why almost half of the buildings in the district are on the special list of the fund for the protection of architectural monuments.
Another unique feature — is the absence of any central highways — each part of the district has its main streets, which are also major shopping attractions.
The third "peculiarity" -is the area of the bodies of water — the Admiralteysky district can rightly be called the most aquatic district of St. Petersburg.

Admiralteisky District is distinguished from the rest of St. Petersburg by its pre-revolutionary buildings. The architectural appearance of Admiralteisky district was formed mainly by the mid-19th century.
It is possible to talk about the sights of Admiralteisky district for a long time — about a half of the entire cultural heritage of St. Petersburg is situated on a relatively small area. And almost every year some new monuments are added to the existing number of old and not so old ones, that are already part of well-established ensemble. Outstanding architects such as K. Rossi, D. Quarenghi, A. Zakharov, O. Montferrand and others worked there. World famous monuments and iconic buildings, that decorate St. Petersburg, such as St. Isaac's Cathedral, New Holland, Senate and Synod, Mariinsky and Yusupov Palaces etc. are located there. The majestic buildings are surrounded by picturesque gardens and squares
