The souvenir token covered with gold depicts the famous landmarks of Saint Petersburg. The city is considered to be the cultural capital of Russia, so its architecture and art are frequently shown on various souvenirs. The city was built by Peter the Great in the 18th century on the spare place as the new capital instead of Moscow, so it has the general plan of architecture displaying the harmony of neoclassical and Baroque-style cityscapes. Many of the city’s buildings are protected as the national and world’s cultural heritage sites. The coin-like token shows the image of the famous Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, which is one of the symbols of Saint Petersburg. The relief is minted as a background image for the griffin statue. The large beautiful statues of the creatures are located on the Bank bridge across the Griboedov Canal in Saint Petersburg as well. They are the landmarks of the city no less than massive buildings. The name of the city is minted above the images.
