SAINT PETERSBURG

Other symbols

Zagorodny Prospect, 27
A caduceus above the entrance. You can also view a larger image of the demonic being under it.

Kamennoostrovsky Prospect, 44-B
Tell us what, if not a Muslim crescent, you can see in the left picture. In the general view of this heraldic composition you can notice that both crescents look in the same direction. The right image shows the turban between them. Later we have learnt that the building was a summery palace of the Emir of Bukhara Seid-Alim, it was designed by S. S. Krichinsky if you are interested in...

Yusupovsky Garden (Sadovaya Ulitsa)
Another caduceus on the column of the wrought-iron fence. Also look at the swastika on this fence.

Liteyny Prospect, 28
That is a rather interesting bas-relief above the entrance under the window. It represents an ellipse (and it looks like an egg) with two Maltese crosses. The lower front of this building is decorated with this symbol abundantly.

Bolshoy Prospect P.S., 65
These are two Sun winged discs of the Egyptian. The left one decorates the front of the building, while the right one is situated below it above the entrance. Also the upper part which resembles an eagle is added.

Kamennoostrovsky Prospect, 35
The signs of the Zodiac (left). It seems somewhen it was a clock, the only sight of the whole building tells about it. But the time has kept the zodiacal stucco mouldings of its face only. We wish Archer had remained... Also on this building we can see a very small Masonic symbol, so small as if it were tried to be hideen.

8 Liniya V.O., 61
Another Maltese cross. As you can see in the picture of the side elevation the whole building is decorated with such crosses.

Nevsky Prospect, 17 (left)
Ekaterina's Palace, the town of Pushkin (right)
Two Maltese crosses on balconies. The first one (left) is situated on the building in the centre of St. Petersburg, it has symbol seems the Rosicrucian star on each side, and the second Maltese cross is situated on the building (palace) in the suburb of the city - in the town of Pushkin, that was the residence of the Russian Tsars. Ekaterina's Palace has a row of such balconies on front.

Engineering Castle
Well, we can say this Maltese cross is the main Maltese cross of the St. Petersburg, because it is situated on the flank little tower of the Engineering Castle (also Michael's Castle) on the Fontanka river, this castle was the residence of Emperor Paul I who was the member of the Maltese Order. The cross makes the common composition with the row of swastikas.

Maltese chapel
On the other hand this one is the main Maltese cross of the St. Petersburg, because it is situated on the front under the roof of the Maltese chapel of the Vorontsov's Palace. This is a Catholic church of the Knights of Malta that was built by order of Emperor Paul I at 1800. A great many of Maltese crosses inside the building: on ceiling, on walls, over candelabrums, on the altar.

Ulitsa Zhukovskogo, 2
Another caduceus. There are a lot of caduceuses in Saint Petersburg, and most of them are not interesting at all, but this one we're publishing because its wand is similar to a psilocybe mushroom (in reality as we understand it is Mercury's helmet whose symbol is caduceus).

Vladimirsky Prospect, 7
And this caduceus is interesting because it has a lion's head on its top.

Ulitsa Rubinsteina, 3
Here we can view an eight-pointed star, the Orthodox symbol. They are situated under the windows on the front of the building.

Moskovsky Prospect, 61
Another eight-pointed star, at least it is tracery shaped like an eight-pointed star. The row of such stars is situated under the roof of the building.

Ligovsky Prospect, 135
A sun disc above the entrance. This variant seems to be more resembling the original than previous ones.

Zakharyevskaya Ulitsa, 23
This is so called "Egyptian House" in Saint Petersburg. The building itself can hardly attract attention but it is abundantly decorated with Egyptian images. Some of them are not symbols, but we've decided to exhibit them too. The upper left picture represents two statues at the entrance which are similar to those in some ancient Egyptian temples (we don't mean their dimensions of course), as well as high relief "guarding" the windows in the opposite picture. The sun disk in the middle left picture is familiar to us (another sun disk on this building can be seen at the bottom of the photo mentioned above), but this one is interesting in the point that it has a six-pointed star in its center. The middle right photo shows some hieroglyphs and we can see the Ankh and the Eye among them. And at last there are some scenes created in the typical Egyptian manner in two lower pictures. Of course we don't show all the decorations of the house, only the most interesting ones.

Naberezhnaya Kanala Griboedova
We've noticed this five-pointed star on the Church of Christ's Resurrection (it is also called "the Saviour-on-Blood"). Besides this it has a lot of upturned stars on one of its vaults. Generally on the walls of the cathedral we can see the multitude of various symbols. Here we present the eight-pointed star and other old Orthodox symbol, which today for some reason goes under the name "Iron Cross" ("Eisernes Kreuz"). On the other hand this symbol may be the variant of the Maltese cross, though it is very dubious to find it on the Orthodox church. Also view the David's star and swastika from this building.

Suvorovsky Prospect, 34
The complete assortment of Masonic attributes: triangle, ruler, compasses, branch of acacia and ribbon. Though it isn't clear what this Neptune's trident means, as they are placed very close to each other.

Naberezhnaya Reki Moyki, 114
The same symbol on the building at the other end of city.

The Leichtenbergskie's manor
A very interesting bas-relief under the roof of the wing of the Leichtenbergskie's manor situated in Sergievka Park under St. Petersburg, far from the centre of the city. Here we can see a figure of leafs that is very similar to an inverted pentagram.

The 8th Krasnoarmeyskaya Ulitsa, 15 / 17
This symbol is situated under the house-top of a building. It consists of a big five-pointed star, smaller five-pointed star (inverted) and isosceles pentagon. Three pentagrams if you want.
