The Stock Exchange and the Rostral columns

Strolling along the embankments of the Basil island spit, where you will meet a lot of just married couples, you can enjoy a tremendous view of the Winter Palace and the Neva river in its widest part. It is definitely not easy to figure out the history of this sunlit beautiful place during the early days of St.-Petersburg, when everything here served a particular purpose: the spit served as a place to unload cargo from arriving ships, the wares were controlled by the customs, situated nearby in yellow and white classical building with a small dome (currently the Institute and the Museum of Russian literature) and were sold in the Stock Exchange – the ostendous building right opposite the spit reminds of Ancient Greek temples (today: the Navy Museum). Beautiful Rostral Columns, decorated by four figures representing main rivers of Russia, used to be lighthouses (today they are only lit on festivals).

A recently opened tourist attraction is a floating fountain, where on the weekend you can enjoy classical music.

“…When I left the clinic and walked down the Nevsky Prospect I knew I was pregnant — and the feeling was right! 9 month after her visit at the AVA Clinic Alexander was born!”

After 3 IVF in Sweden, 3 miscarriages, Elisabet and Pär became parents of lovely Ester through egg donation in St. Petersburg

“…Well the Millennium shift came, the year 2000, we all remember what we did then, right? I got cancer, Hodgkin's lymphoma... And when I stand here now 17 years later, you understand that it went well! Except for one important thing…"
