Senate Square
Long known as Decembrists’ Square, in honor of the December Revolt of 1825 which took place here, Senate Square is located along a branch of the Neva River. The Admiralty and Senate sit along the square. It’s also the home of one of the iconic symbols of St. Petersburg: Catherine the Great erected The Bronze Horseman, an equestrian statue of Peter the Great. It stands atop the largest stone ever moved by humans, the so-called Thunder Stone which weighs 1250 tons.
