Vosstaniya Square, one of St. Petersburg’s main squares and transport hubs, lies on Nevsky Prospect. Its name translates as “uprising,” as it was the site of many demonstrations of the Russian Revolution in 1917. Most of the buildings surrounding the square, however, date from the 19th century and the bustle of contemporary St. Petersburg plays out against a historic backdrop.
