  Admiralty facade  

The neo-classical columns make the Admiralty a worthy complement to its surroundings. The shipyard was filled in between 1806 and 1823 and Andrei Zacharov transformed the structure into this impressive monument. The facade is 1355 feet long with manyh sculptures. He kept the central gate with its tower andspire. But hechanged the stype to Neo-Classical. The spire had a model frigate on the top. The Russian naval engineering school is located here now.
