Mesmerising!

It feels like a never ending walk. The feeling is timeless and architecture does not seem to end anywhere in front of your eyes.

It's a symmetric road..... same style as a few other buildings in the city, like on palace square. Yellow collored buildings and white boring columns. Not that exciting.

At the back of Puskin theatre, Ulitsa Rossi is lined with two palaces with exactly the same facades with white columns and painted in yellow. The proportion of the street and the buildings, and its resemblance with the more famous Galleria degli Uffizi (Florence) make it a very nice spot not to miss in St. Petersburg.

A short street just behind the Alexandrinsky Theater is perfectly square: its length equals the height of the buildings on both sides - exactly 22 meters, and its length is ten times greater - 220 meters: perfect antique canon.
