Photographer's Note

The Admiralty is one of the most famous buildings in Saint Petersburg.
After have founded the city, Peter, the Great, decided to create the Russian Navy and built this building in 1711, employing 10,000 men to build fight boats. The original building was rebuilt in 1806 in a more adorned style, as we can see today. This place is where the Naval Engineering School is working at this moment.
We can see here a row os statues in the base of the dome of the main tower.

O prédio do Almirantado é um dos mais famosos de São Petersburgo.
Depois de ter fundado a cidade Pedro, O Grande, decidiu criar a marinha russa. Ergueu esse prédio em 1711 e colocou 10 mil homens para fazer barcos de guerra. O prédio original foi reconstruído da maneira que o vemos hoje em 1806 e é usado como escola da Engenharia Naval.
Vemos aqui uma série de esculturas que adorna a base do domo da torre principal do prédio.
