Senatskaya ploshchad (Senate Square)


One of the oldest squares in St. Petersburg

Senate Square, formerly known as Decembrists' Square in 1925-2008, and Peter's Square, before 1925, is a city square in Saint Petersburg, Russia. It is situated on the left bank of the Bolshaya Neva, in front of Saint Isaac's Cathedral. In 1925 it was renamed Decembrists Square to commemorate the Decembrist Revolt, which took place there in 1825.

The square is bounded by the Admiralty building to the east. On the west there is the Senate and Synod Building (now headquarters of the Constitutional Court of Russia). The Bronze Horseman monument adorns the square. On July 29, 2008, the square was renamed back to Senate Square.
