Remarks & Notes 
In the photo - the passenger terminal of the station New Peterhof. Built in 1857, the station was part of the first railway in Russia (Peterhof).

The exterior of the building in the Gothic style is a small copy of the Catholic Cathedral in the Italian city of Orvieto. The architect of the project is Nikolay Benoit.

Currently, the station building is practically not used; a new passenger pavilion has been built to service suburban trains.

You can admire this beautiful building by passing electricity from the Baltic Station St. Petersburg.

I invite you to support my project - a calendar with the best night photos of Russian railways:

An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads because most of us don't go out after sundown or before sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)

A far cry from the common wedgie ... and particularly well executed.
