The handsomely restored brick complex of 19th-century buildings between the Tauride Gardens and the Neva River house St Petersburg’s water treatment company, Vodakanal, and its World of Water Museum . The view from the top of the water tower is grand and, if you can read the Russian-only captions, the slick, modern displays elsewhere in the museum are informative. Otherwise you can admire antique water pipes, commodes and photos of luxurious long-gone banya .
