Three main streets of Saint Petersburg — Gorokhovaya street, Nevsky and Voznesensky avenues are radiating from the Main building of the Admiralty. The Alexander garden is located in front of the main building. The building itself stretched for 407 meters along the Neva river, its facade decorated with various bas-reliefs and one of the main symbols of the Northern city — spire with its gilded vane-boat, which can be seen from any point of Nevsky Prospekt.
