Bolshoi prospect of St. Basil Island, Lions, Admiralty, Nevskii
Good day. A little unusual way for me to go home from
Bolshoi prospect of St. Basil Island. As far as I remember, it has been
closed for a long time because of an extensive reconstruction project, and all "
business activity" was transferred to Srednii prospect.

Admiralty, behind it - St. Isaac
I did not take this picture from the river, it's just that at this place
on the bridge there is some kind of an observation deck extending out above the river.
you look hard you can see the lions on the embankment in front of the Admiralty.
