Field of Mars

The Field is named after Mars, the Roman god of war. In the 19th century this field was used mainly for military parades and exercises (yellow barracks of Mikhaylovski regiment are overlooking the field) and as a result it was so dusty that people called it "Sakhara desert in the middle of St.-Petersburg". Today it is a pleasant area with bushes and lawns, which among other things offers a spectacular view on a number of sights: Church of Resurrection of Christ, Mikhajlovski castle and the Troitsky bridge, designed by Gustav Eiffel.

“…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…"
