21 votos
The Saint Petersburg State Mining Institute (http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Petersburg_Mining_Institute ) is housed in an Empire style building on the 21st line and the Neva River embankment on the south shore of Vasilievsky Island. It was built in 1806-1811 to a design by the serf-architect Andrey Voronikhin (http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrey_Voronikhin ), who also designed the Kazan Cathedral on Nevsky Prospekt and buildings on Paul I's estate at Pavlovsk south of the city. The statues flanking the entrance were sculpted by Stepan Pimenov; the reliefs were done by Vasily Demuth-Malinovsky (http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vasily_Demuth-Malinovsky ).

Admiralty Wharves ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Admiralty_Shipyard ) are visible on the left of the Neva River.
