Griboyedov canal embankment

The former modest rivulet carried such a proud name for 150 years, until in 1923 the Catherine Canal was renamed in honor of the great Russian playwright and diplomat Alexander Griboedov. After all, it was here, on the Catherine Canal, that his first apartment in St. Petersburg was located.

The canal embankment is only five kilometers away, but how many happy and tragic destinies these shores have seen. You can start your journey into the history and beauty of this embankment from the Field of Mars, venerate the memory of Alexander II in the [Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood] (https://kudago.com/spb/place/spas-na-krovi/), built on the site his fatal wound, go to the [Benois building of the Russian Museum] (https://kudago.com/spb/place/korpus-benua/), stand at the Jesuit house, look into the famous Book House — [Singer House] ( https://kudago.com/spb/place/dom-zingera/).
