Palace Square

Palace Square is one of the most perfect areas of the world in respect of town-planning. It is the result of work of several generations of talented architects.

The area is created by the southern facade of the Winter Palace which is rounded off by a facade of the General Staff Building and the western facade of Headquarters of the Guards corps. The ensemble of the area includes also Small Hermitage whose three-stored case comes to Millionnaya Street and is subordinated to a facade of the Winter Palace. An important element of ensemble is also the New Hermitage decorated with granite sculptures of Atlases.

In the center of the area is situated Alexander Column — a monument of Patriotic war of 1812.
