Grand Maket Russia, St. Petersburg

4.7
Boasting one of the largest railway models in Europe, Grand Maket Russia features a three-dimensional layout with mountains, lakes, forests, rivers, and small towns. Hundreds of modelers and artists worked on this display, opened in 2012 with the aim of introducing visitors to the country's diverse communities and lifestyles. The layout contains street scenes depicting modern Russia, with functioning factories, flying helicopters, moving cars, and lifelike figures of people and animals. The museum's two-level railroad links the entire setup, with automatic changes from day to night and back giving the representation an added feeling of reality. Photography is permitted free of charge, so don't forget to bring your camera.

  • This is all of Russia in one place! Pleasantly surprised to see the intricate details in the displays. Gives an overview of Russia and if you’re a tourist it will definitely give you a better picture of how Russia is like. Spent a good 3 hours to appreciate this miniature Russia.
  • The great model of the whole country. Very accurate representation of many Russian regions including typical characters and situation. Worth seeing for small and grownups and especially modellers!
