My wife and I visited another interesting museum during our stay in St. Petersburg - Aquatorium of Peter the Great.

«Aquatorium of Peter the Great» is an interactive scale model of Saint Petersburg in the XVIII century, which recreates its most famous landmarks. The unique exposition tells a fascinating story of how the Northern capital was founded. Here you can witness Saint Petersburg as it appeared during the times of Peter I and Catherine the Great. Every object is created with a great degree of accuracy, based on historical documents. The movement of tiny figures and carriages, ships sailing in real water, various sound and light effects contribute to the unforgettable experience of the city as it began.

I hope you will be interested to see my photo essay about this museum. :)

That is the most amazing thing I've ever seen! I would spend days looking at it if I was there. I love the bus sleighs (I have no idea what you would really call them). Do you know how long it took to create and how many people were involved in the process?

Thanks for the treat!
