The central hall is decorated with high-reliefs with portraits of the famous Russian admirals:

Count Fyodor Apraksin (1661–1728) was one of the first Russian Admirals who governed Estonia and Karelia from 1712 to 1723, General Admiral (1708), presided over the Russian Admiralty since 1718 and commanded the Baltic Fleet since 1723. During the Great Northern War of 1700-1721 against Sweden he commanded the Imperial Russian Navy in the taking of Helsinki (1713) - materially assisting the conquest of Finland by his operations from the side of the sea - and the great Battle of Gangut (1714), the first important victory of the Russian fleet in its history. From 1710 to 1720 Apraksin personally conducted the descents upon Sweden, ravaging that country mercilessly, and thus extorting the Peace of Nystad, whereby Swedes surrendered the best part of their Baltic provinces to Russia:

Fyodor Ushakov (1744-1817) was the most illustrious Russian naval commander and admiral of the 18th century. During the Second Russo-Turkish War of 1787-1792 he brilliantly defeated the Turks at Fidonisi, Kerch Strait, Tendra, and Cape Kaliakra. In these battles, Ushakov demonstrated the excellence of his innovative doctrines on art of naval fighting. In the course of 43 naval battles under his command he did not lose a single ship:

Fabian Gottlieb von Bellingshausen (1778-1852) was an officer in the Imperial Russian Navy, cartographer and explorer, who ultimately rose to the rank of Admiral. He was a notable participant of the First Russian circumnavigation (1803-1806) and subsequently a leader of another circumnavigation expedition, which discovered the continent of Antarctica (January 28, 1820). In the Antarctic, multiple geographical features and locations, named in honor of Bellingshausen, remind of his role in exploration of the southern polar region:

Pavel Nakhimov (1802-1855) was one of the most famous admirals in Russian naval history, best remembered as the commander of naval and land forces during the Siege of Sevastopol during the Crimean War. During the Crimean War of 1853-1856 Nakhimov distinguished himself by annihilating the Ottoman fleet at Sinope in 1853. His finest hour came during the Siege of Sevastopol, where he and Admiral Vladimir Kornilov organized from scratch the land defense of the city and its port, the home base of the Russian Black Sea Fleet. As the commander of the port and the military governor of the city, Nakhimov became in fact the head of the Sevastopol naval and land defense forces. On July 10, 1855, while inspecting the forward-defense positions on Malakhov Kurgan he was fatally wounded by a sniper and died two days later:

Stepan Makarov (1849–1904) was a Russian Vice Admiral, a highly accomplished and decorated commander of the Imperial Russian Navy, an oceanographer, awarded by the Russian Academy of Sciences, and author of several books. He was one of the first to adopt the idea of torpedo boats and he himself went to action in torpedo boats. On January 16, 1877 he was first in the World to launch torpedoes from a boat (which itself was launched from a tender) against a Ottoman Navy ship "Intibah". Makarov directed two round-the-world oceanographic expeditions on the corvette "Vityaz" (1886–1889 and 1894–1896). He proposed the World's first icebreaker, the "Yermak", oversaw its construction, and commanded it on two Arctic expeditions in 1899 and 1901. Makarov was died during Russo-Japanese War of 1904-1905 at the "Petropavlovsk" battleship, which was sunk after striking two mines near Port Arthur:

An_ToxA

Ivan Grigorovich (1853—1930) served as Russia's Naval Minister from 1911 until the onset of revolution in 1917. After the Japanese torpedo boats attack on Port-Arthur, starting the Russo-Japanese War, Grigorovich was promoted to rear admiral and appointed chief of Port Arthur's port. Under his effective management, Russian Pacific squadron had no shortage of coal, munitions or any supplies during the Siege of Port Arthur. After the end of the war Grigorovich was appointed chief of staff of the Black Sea Fleet. In 1909 he was appointed Deputy Navy Minister. From 1911 until the onset of revolution in 1917 he served as Russia's Naval Minister, overseeing a huge rearment programme. The naval build-up included building four "Gangut" class battleships and four "Imperatritsa Mariya" class battleships for the Black Sea. He enjoyed good relationships with the Duma and used his popularity to secure huge extra funds to expand the navy:
