ADMIRALTY CANAL was dug from the eastern ditch of the Amiralty Fortress (today, the Dvortsovy Bridge ramp to the Palace Square) to the Moika River to connect the Admiralty Shipyard with Galerny Dvor (Galley Yard) and warehouses of New Holland. It received its name from the Admiralty located nearby. In the 1840s, part of the Admiralty Canal was enclosed into a pipe to lay Admiralteisky Passage and Konnogvargeisky Boulevard along its bed. The lower part of the Admiralty Canal connecting the Krukov Canal and the Moika River has been preserved (350 meters long and up to 25 meters wide). The fragment of the covered Admiralty Canal can be seen in the pedestrian subway under Truda Square. In 1922-91, it was named the Krustein Canal, after Karl Krustein (1887-1921), a participant of the Civil War. The complex of New Holland is located at the left shore of the Canal. The Canal embankment’s notable buildings include No 3 (the second half of the 18th century, reconstructed in 1884, architects Alexander Benois and Yury Benois); No 7 (1827; reconstructed in 1852, architects Nikolay Grebenka and Ivan Klimov); No 17 (1900, architect Alexander Bruni, in 1930-90s, the Scientific Research Institute of the Whiteware Industry); No 25 (the end of the 18th - the beginning of 19th century); No 29 (1824, architect Pavel Filippov, at the turn of the 20th century, the reserve palace of the Grand Prince Pavel Alexandrovich). The artist Alexander Benois lived in No 31 in 1908-14.
