This distinctive tower is visible from various spots and angles throughout the immediate area. It is quite a standout when viewed from the area of St. Isaac's and you see this gold spire in the distance. It is part of the Admiralty complex.

This is quite a large complex located along the Neva between Senate Square and Palace Square. It's a very impressive looking structure and is well worth the effort of walking around outside. I didn't see any tourists going inside when I visited, but that's possibly...More
