One can admire the Rostral Column that is located on the Strip (in Russian Strelka) of Vasilievsky Island and the Saint Isaac Cathedral on this decorative box. The artist positioned the major sights in a way that they complement each other. The dark background reminds us that Saint Petersburg is a northern city where cold, unwelcome winds are frequent and a sailboat is nothing but a toy amidst the powerful waves. However, the city founded by Peter l remains unchangeable.
