19 reviews of Palace Square

The hub of the city

This is the hub of the city, a huge and monumental plaza with buildings facing the Winter Palace, part of the Hermitage Museum. The square is dominated by a triumphal column topped by an angel, the symbol of Alexander I's victory over Napoleon. In the south is a grand triumphal arch with bronze horses. This is where the Bolshevik revolution was born, and today it is filled with carriages and street hawkers. If you want to buy something, expect to haggle, and pay in rubles. There are also period costumed actors, ve you can take a picture with.
