Lomonosov Square

Interesting
Harmonious Lomonosov Square, surrounded by Neoclassical buildings, is part of a complex composed of two squares - the other one is Ostrovsky Square - connected by a street named after Carlo Rossi, who created the complex. The best view of this perfectly proportioned street, closed off by the Alexandra Theatre, is from this spot. The large semi-circular building lining the square once housed the Ministry of Education. In its centre stands a bust of Mikhail Lomonosov created by P. Zabello and placed here in 1892.
