St. Petersburg grew rapidly, becoming the political and economic center of Russia. The city has experienced wars, revolutions and palace coups, but over its centuries-old history has been able to preserve many unique architectural monuments.

What important sights are within walking distance from the Teatralnaya Ploshchad Hotel in the center of St. Petersburg? We tell you in the article.

St. Nicholas Naval Cathedral

It is enough to cross the bridge, and you will find yourself in the beautiful Nikolsky Garden, where the eponymous Naval Cathedral is located.

When did he appear in St. Petersburg? St. Nicholas-Epiphany Naval Cathedral was built in the middle of the 18th century on the initiative of Prince Mikhail Golitsyn. The Orthodox church has been a naval regimental church for several centuries. 

After the revolution, the Bolsheviks did not demolish the cathedral. Later they were able to resume the service here, and in 1966 Anna Akhmatova was buried in the walls of the church.

However, the building of the Mariinsky Theater was built only in 1859, and it received its name in honor of Maria Alexandrovna, the wife of Alexander II.

New Holland

Man-made islands in the Admiralty district appeared as a result of the construction of the Kryukov and Admiralty canals. At first, New Holland was used for storing ship's timber. Sheds were built on the islands to store wood and various tools for repairing ships.

At the end of the 18th century, the first buildings began to be erected here, the famous arch appeared. In the 19th century, a prison was built on the territory of New Holland, which was popularly called a “bottle”, as well as a brick forge.
