Palace Square

This square is among the largest in Saint Petersburg. Covering several acres it is surrounded by majestic monuments including the Winter Palace and the impressive building of the General Headquarters along with its triumphal Arch. Right in its middle stands the Alexander Column. The Palace Square, called ”Uristksy Square” in Soviet was the scene of events that marked the history such as ”Red Sunday”. That day of December 1905, a march on the Winter Palace was bloodily repressed. Now everyday thousands of people cross the square on their way to visit the Hermitage Museum, but it is still the scene of many cultural events.
