The museum's collection occupies a complex consisting of six buildings located on the banks of the Neva River, the most important of these being the Winter Palace, the official residence of the ancient czars. The rest of the architectural complex is made up of five buildings, including the Menshikov Palace, the General Staff Building and an open storage facility.

The Bronze Horseman (in Russian, Медный всадник, literally "Copper Knight") is an equestrian sculpture of Peter the Great, made in bronze by Étienne-Maurice Falconet in St. Petersburg, Russia. It receives this name due to the influence of the homonymous poem by Aleksandr Pushkin, one of the greatest poems of the Russian language. It is now a symbol of St. Petersburg, as the Statue of Liberty is a symbol of New York.
The block on which the statue stands is known as Thunder Stone, and it is said to be the largest rock that man has moved. In fact, the rock is not only huge, but it was transported six kilometers to the coast of the Gulf of Finland only by force of man, without animals or machines.
It still stands on the shore of the Neva. The effect caused by the statue is as original as it is great: the sculpture does not rest on an architectural pedestal, but the horse rears up on the granite rock; the Tsar lacks a sword; his haughty figure, who seems to designate the new capital by hand and mark a path to his people, does not evoke the warrior, but the legislator and the civilizer.

Palace Square (St. Petersburg)
The Palace Square (in Russian, Дворцовая площадь, Dvortsóvaya Plóshchad), joins Nevsky Prospekt with the Palace Bridge leading to Vasilyevsky Island, is the central square of St. Petersburg and the former Russian Empire. The place was the scene of many events of worldwide importance, including Bloody Sunday (1905) and the October Revolution (1917).
The oldest and most famous building in the square is the Winter Palace of the Russian tsars (1754-62), in white and blue baroque style, which gives its name to the square. Although the adjacent buildings have a neoclassical construction, they combine perfectly with the palace in terms of scale, rhythm and monumentality.
The opposite side of the square, the south side, was designed in an arc shape by the architect George von Velten in the 18th century. However, von Velten's plans were put into practice half a century later, when Alexander I of Russia imagined the square as a huge monument to the Russian victory against Napoleon Bonaparte and commissioned Carlo Rossi (in: Carlo Rossi (architect) ) to design the General Staff Building (1819-29). This arch-shaped and Empire-style construction features a double triumphal arch topped with a Roman quadriga in the center.
The middle of the square is indicated by the Alexander Column (1830-34), designed by Auguste de Montferrand. This column of red granite (the highest of its kind in the world) is 47.5 meters high and weighs around 600 tons. It is so well established that it does not need to be attached to its base.
The eastern part of the square is occupied by the Guard Corps Barracks (1837-43), created by Aleksandr Briulov. However, the western side opens towards the Admiralty Square, which makes the Palace Square a vital part of the great set of squares in St. Petersburg.

Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood
The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood or Church of the Resurrection of Christ (in Russian: Храм Спаса на Крови) is a St. Petersburg church, located on the bank of the Griboedova canal (named in honor of Aleksandr Griboydodov) near the park of the Russian Museum and Nevsky Avenue. The official name in Russian is Собор Воскресения Христова, which means Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ, and was built on the place where Tsar Alexander II of Russia was killed, victim of an attack on March 13, 1881 (March 1 to the Julian calendar, in force in Russia at that time). During World War II and the blockade of the city, a bomb fell on top of the highest dome of the church. The bomb did not explode and was inside the dome of the church for 19 years. Only when the workers went up to the dome to mend the leaks, the bomb was found and removed. Then it was decided to begin the restoration of the Church of spilled blood.
After 27 years of restoration, the Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood was inaugurated as a state museum where visitors can learn the story of the assassination of Alexander II.
