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.

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).

Recommended for those who stay in St.Peter. more than a weekend or for those who have been at Neva City many times and have observed all the main attractions, and especially for natives of Russia. The location of the GM is far from the city center, so use the taxi-it would not cost a lot. But be aware that the... More

The attention to detail was amazing. The days/night shifts were really cool. And even though I was only in St.Petersburg I felt like I had seen the whole country!! I spent a whole day there and still would have gone back another day if my trip wasn't so short.

When the weather is bad, this is a good place to visit. You learn something about Russia and have fun. Take a taxi form hotel to Grand Maket and arrive early to avoid que outside.

You can have a nice time here. 來到這裡少女心完全爆發,看了兩小時真的滿累的。不過裡面咖啡廳還有免費的充電箱。仔細看裡面的人物真的很可愛,如果想看中間部分可以租借望遠鏡。門票有學生票、親子票、成人票
