Vasilievsky Island is the biggest island of the Neva. In the eastern part of the island there is one of the most interesting buildings - the Stock Exchange. It was built in 1805-1810, stands on the high base and is surrounded by 44 Doric columns. The building looks like an antique temple, though there is no traditional fronton, which is replaced by the sculpture group "Neptune's Triumph". On either hand of the building there are Rostral columns decorated with rostrs (ship head figures). The stamp features one of the rostrs.

The present Winter Palace was built in 1754-1762. First it was a small wooden house, then two centuries later it became a huge palace complex and became one of the largest and beautiful St.Petersburg buildings. It has all the elements of the Baroque taste: the combination of imagery and gilding. The 176 sculptures on the roof of the building accentuate the gravity of the building.
