Owner description: Contrasting architectures and wide open spaces are the hallmarks of this extraordinary plaza, which has witnessed historic events like Bloody Sunday and the storming of the Winter Palace and is now the rallying place for every imaginable political demonstration.

The monumental Dvortsovaya ploshchad is one of the most impressive and historic spaces in the city. Stand well back to admire the palace and the central.

If you walk from the Admiralty Arch to the Winter Palace, you will have to walk across it. Apart from that, it is not really worth time to visit.

Palace Square is one of the most beautiful places in Europe. It is very balanced with the nature in St. Petersburg. One of the "must see" and "must photograph" squares in the world and I like that they keep it practically "commercial free", in July 2013 we were lucky to listen to a free unforgettable concert; however, last time we visited on June 29, 2014 and we have seen there many attractions like skateboard platforms, basketball goals and other playgrounds. I do not think it is a wright place, does not match the square and does not increase the value.

For those interested in the tumultuous history of St Petersburg, a visit to the square and moments of reflection are in order. After all, it all began here in 1917, and the Seige of Leningrad is best contemplated from this location just outside the winter palace and the Hermitage. St Petersburg is a truly beautiful city, and this square is on par with St Peters in Rome. Truly breathtaking.
