In new shopping and entertainment complex «Admiral» that over metro station «Admiralteyskaya», there is breadboard model of St.-Petersburg of Peter I years (if to be exact, first half of XVIII century) at full speed is completed. At once it is necessary to notice that buildings on a breadboard model are collected from the next time pieces, to it the captious reader can find little errors. The exhibition already works, truth while is ready only third of objects and sketches from figures.

So, a short sightseeing tour on a breadboard model of St.-Petersburg of Peter I years, 33 photo:
2nd Admiralty island and Admiralty
2nd Admiralty island and Admiralty. On the right a light three-storyed building — the second Winter Palace. The district directly before us long time was deserted and few buildings. Pastor Kreitz in the application on the permission to construct Lutheran church (that on Nevsky prospectus), submitted to the empress Anna Ioannovne, specified: «I Am afraid of a lack of water, malefactors, murderers, thieves and the different falsities happening ordinary with that who lives far from the neighbours».

2nd Isaakievsky cathedral
At full speed 2nd is under construction the Isaakievsky cathedral Antonio Rinaldi. This not so Petrovsky years, instead of it there should be a small wooden churchlet for the sake of sacred Isaak Dolmatsky which was to the forerunner to the subsequent cathedrals.

English quay

Suburbs of St.-Petersburg


Kronstadt for the present is under construction, some structures only are designated. Before us the Petrovsky (southern) dock, on the right, probably — the Italian palace, at the left — Menshikov's Palace behind which the Petrovsky park is seen.

Botik Peter
Botik Peter. I here did not know that it was in Kronstadt. Probably it before ботик has been moved on territory the Peter and Paul Fortress.

Forts around Kronstadt began to be created at once. A part of fortresses on natural islets, and a part — on specially насыпанных artificial. Swedes both did not storm, and could not overcome neither forts, nor a fortress on island Kotlin.

Small carriage
On a breadboard model carriages, crews and vehicles travel about. Horses, of course, hoofs do not move — scale is hefty small, but looks rather effectively, especially sparks on carriages.

The breadboard model as I spoke, is still completed, but I recommend to visiting already now — while there are no roaring crowds, there is such popularity, as at Grand Breadboard model Russia. The idea here same, but is a binding to district, let with small errors. And the same realisation with buttons on the perimetre, initiating any movements on objects: the fire lights up, the crew starts to run, fires on ball of grandees are lighted, etc.
