The Jean-Paul-L'Allier Prize for Heritage




The World Heritage Site within the territory of St. Petersburg is a unique serial site that includes the historic centre of the city and suburban areas (palaces, parks, scientific facilities, fortifications). Today, there are some 9000 historical and cultural monuments in St. Petersburg and more than 500 of the monuments represent unique sites of industrial architecture. In 2005, in accordance with the strategy set forth in St. Petersburg’s Master Plan, the city started a process to relocate industrial production outside the historical centre.
