The old Saint Petersburg Bourse is the old stock exchange, built in the early 19th century. Inspired by the Greek temples of Paestum, the architect of this white colonnaded building was a Frenchman: Thomas de Thomon.

Since Soviet times, the building has functioned as the Central Museum of the Russian Navy. If you are interested in old maps russian ship models, old flags and photos, this is the place to be.
