Palace Square is one of the main public spaces in St. Petersburg, Russia.  It's named after the adjacent Winter Palace, the official residence of the Romanov family from 1732-1917 and now part of the Hermitage.  The focal point of Palace Square is the Alexander Column; it's named after Tsar Alexander I, who led the victory over Napoleon in the early 1800's.  In this drone video by Shkrebiy, you'll get a 360 degree view of the square, the site of the Bloody Sunday Massacre of 1905 which set the stage for the Russian Revolutions of 1917.
