PETROGRADSKAYA EMBANKMENT known as Peterburgskaya Embankment until 1914. It lies between Petrovskaya Embankment and Karpovka River Embankment on the left bank of the Neva River in the east of Petrogradsky Island (hence the name). It appeared in the city centre of that time in 1700s. An office and officer corps of the quarters of Grenadersky Lifeguard Regiment were built by architect L. Rusca at number 44 in 1803-07. Poet A. A. Blok lived there in 1889-1916. The embankment was partly covered with granite in 1901-03. Building 2 was constructed as Peter the Great City College House in 1909-11 (today, Nakhimovsky Naval College), house 32 was built by architect V. V. Schaub in 1888-89. The Third Division of the People's Volunteer Corps was raised here in 1941. The Aurora cruiser was permanently anchored at Petrogradskaya Embankment in 1948. Part of the embankment behind Sampsonievsky Bridge was covered with granite in 1965-68. The former Vibrator Works situated in buildings 16 and 18 has been accommodating the City Business Centre since 2002. Building 30 accommodates Volkswagen's car salon. Building 34 houses the Curtain and Lace Factory. A monument to entrepreneur A. Nobel (see Nobel Family) by sculptors S. Alipov and P. Shevchenko and architect V. Zhuykov was placed in the embankment in 1991. Petrogradskaya Embankment is linked to Pirogovskaya Embankment on Vyborgskaya Side via Sampsonievsky Bridge and Grenadersky Bridge.
