Plan de la ville de St Petersburg

Description

The island fortress of Petrapavlovsk appears centre left in this King’s Topographical Collection map. On the south bank of the Neva (towards the top of the map) can be seen the naval shipyards and the Admiralty building, its gilded spire the focus of the wide boulevard of Nevsky Prospect. Just left of the Admiralty can be seen the Winter Palace.
