The Stock Exchange

The grand ensemble of the Spit of Vasilyevsky Island, one of the most spectacular in St Petersburg, forms the central link in the panoramic view of the Neva embankments. The smooth river surface between Hare Island and the left-hand bank of the Neva looks like a majestic water square framed with fine ensembles of the city’s central squares, but the Spit of Vasilyevsky Island had not always had its present-day appearance.

The Stock Exchange

In former times there was a port in this area and dozens of ships and boats were scurrying around on the Neva. In winter, merry-making and sledge races were arranged on the ice, and on Epiphany Day the Tsar reviewed the parade of the regiments at the “Jordan” hole cut through the ice.
The Spit of Vasilyevsky Island took its present-day look by 1830. The floodplain was raised by filling it with earth and as a result the bank stretched out into the Neva for more than one hundred metres. Thus Stock Exchange Square was formed. Its main landmark was the Stock Exchange building resembling an ancient temple standing on a granite podium. The Stock Exchange, the Rostral Columns and the embankments of the Spit of Vasilyevsky Island formed the first large-scale Classical ensemble of St Petersburg. Nowadays the Stock Exchange building houses the Central Naval Museum.
