Petrogradskaya embankment

**Petrogradskaya Embankment** occupies a strip of land on the left bank of the Bolshaya Nevka River and connects [Petrovskaya Embankment] (http://kudago.com/spb/place/petrovskaya-naberezhnaya/) and Chapaev Street. In historical documents of the XVIII century, it was called Dvoryanskaya, but after a while its name was changed to the current one. The embankment had a wooden base for quite a long time, only in the 20th century it was “dressed” in granite, equipped with a cast-iron fence and improved the descents to the water.

One of the main attractions of Petrogradskaya Embankment is the famous [cruiser Aurora] (http://kudago.com/spb/place/krejser-avrora/), from which a blank shot was fired in the fall of 1917, symbolizing the beginning of the Bolshevik uprising. Today, a historical museum has been organized on the ship, which at one time took part in many naval battles of the First World War.
