On the 8th of June in 2012 the national show-museum «Grand Maket Rossiya» opened its doors hospitably for the wide auditory. By this time, thousands of citizens and quests of our city watched this unique exhibition. On the layout area of 800 square meters you will see the generalized images of cities and regions of Russia. Hundreds of moving trains and cars, sound and light effects add dynamics to the exposition and thousands of tiny figures make the genre scenes. Add the astonishing effect of day and night changing doesn`t leave a single visitors indifferent.

A fascinating place off the tourist trail in St Petersburg. Very easy to reach on the subway. A great way to pass a few hours on a rainy day. The attention to detail and the amount of time put into creating the display is incredible. A superb way of experiencing the whole of Russian in an afternoon!

If you are in St. Pete's for a decent amount of time, this is worth an afternoon. All of Russia in miniature in one room. Kids loved it also a good geography lesson.

Of course, once you get into the Model space, it takes your breath away - this thing is big! But once you start walking around you see that the building and even city locations are not even relatively close to a reality, the scale if off once in a while (at least it looks this way), but worst of all...

I didn't quite know what to expect when I decide to go to this museum and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the craftsmanship in this great train set representing all the regions of Russia

Even though I, a childless 30 year old man, was absolutely transfixed by this incredible giant miniature Russia, with a handful of regions, half a dozen major cities, 10 minute day/night cycles (with hundreds of thousands of lights at night) and more moving vehicles of every sort that I can count, it would also be a rare treat for a...

We went on Monday as my mum who is retired was able to claim discount on entry fee (not valid any other day of the week). It's a bit of a walk from the underground station but easy to find. The place is great and modern. The attraction itself is very interactive, interesting and set up with good sense of... More

Definitely worth to pay a visit. All the exhibition is handcraft and every thing you'll see is unique. The place is usually crowded, so I suggest to visit it during evening hours (no schoolgroups).
