Morskaya Embankment


Categories / City Topography/Urban Network/Embankments

MORSKAYA EMBANKMENT goes along the aggraded shore of the Gulf of Finland from the square in front of the Pribaltiyskaya Hotel to Nalichnaya Street (the name was given in 1972), its semicircle embraces the north-west part of Vasilievsky Island and Dekabristov Island; as the result of the deposition of soil, Volny Island was attached to it. The first part of Morskaya Embankment in front of the Pribaltiyskaya Hotel was constructed in the late 1970s during the course of the Leningrad maritime facade project’s implementation in the 1960s (works were supervised by architects N.V. Baranov, V.A. Kamensky, A.I. Naumov, I.I. Fomin, S.I. Evdokimov). In the 1980s, an embankment with a wide pedestrian esplanade was extended as far as the Smolenka River. Since the 1970s, Morskaya Embankment was built up with 12-16-storey residential houses. A number of buildings were constructed in the early 2000s. In October 1990, turrets of main gauge and screws of the Kirov cruiser that took part in the defence of Leningrad during the Great Patriotic War 1941-45, were placed as monuments between Buildings 15 and 17. The well-developed part of the Morskaya Embankment is the territory of the former Volny Island near modern Admiralsky Avenue, where the Naval Club of the Voluntary Society for Assistance to Army, Air Force, and Navy was located in the 1950-70s. Today, it is a residential area.
