Grand Maket Rossiya, St. Petersburg Overview

Grand Maket Rossiya is a massive and interactive miniature model of many regions throughout Russia.

This model representation of Russia is the largest such model layout in all of Russia and the second largest in the world. It is truly a fascinating display of everyday life in the country. Spread over 800 square metres, the model took 5 years to build, and is a really fun experience! The model is laid out with buses, cars, railways, monuments, houses, and basically everything you can think of. The fun part is that there are buttons and switches located throughout the layout which you can press and see the model come to life! It has a day and night function, where every 13 minutes, thanks to the help of LED lights scattered all over, the model goes into night mode for 2 minutes. Cars, buses and motor vehicles run throughout the model look as if they're moving on their own (remotely operated from under the structure), crossing each other, and even stopping at traffic lights! Even the trains are operated with a carefully planned system, with more than 2700 of them actually running in the entire layout. This is definitely one of the most unique show museums in the entire world, and one of St. Petersburg's top tourist attractions!
