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.
