Rostral column

St. Petersburg, Russia
5 / 5
The place where Vasilievsky Island divides the river. Neva into two parts and as if crashes into the water. There are many buildings of different eras and architectural styles, which makes this place a real open-air museum. Of particular interest are the rostral columns of red-brown color, decorated with ship's noses. The structures functioned as beacons for ships until the end of the 19th century.
