Midnight in Saint Petersburg - The Griboyedova canal, maybe: I think that's the Church of the Saviour on Blood aka Church of the Spilled Blood, situated on a side street off Nevsky Prospect, St Petersburg's main street...Caine is looking at, in order of proximity to him, a) the Kazan Cathedral colonnades, b) the parapet of the canal 'bridge' which is really an extensive courtyard and main road (Nevsky Prospekt), c) The Kutuzov statue, d) the high domed entrance to the Singer building (far left), and finally, in the distance on the right, The Church on the Spilled Blood. Everything has been foreshortened by the camera's depth of field setting which has made the background look huge. (Harry Hulme)

midpet011n. Here's a Google shot showing the structure and statue on the left, but there seems to be no bridge. SJ This I'm sure is Nevsky Prospect, the imposing building is a museum and the statue is of Kutuzov, a Russian hero of the Napoleonic Wars

midpet013n. Google/SJ but I'm still worried about the bridges. The building on the left is I believe Kazan Cathedral, the building with the ball top is I believe the Singer building.
