Famous German writer Goethe was the first who named St Petersburg as ''Venice of the North'' because of canals likening it to the Italian city, and its pastel palaces and candlelit cathedrals scattered throughout. Thus, it is true that St Petersburg sometimes is too European to be Russian.
But everything is done there "...for the glory of Russia solely" - those were the words once uttered by Bartolomeo Rastrelli, designer of famous Hermitage museum.
Other attractions include:
- St.Isaac's Cathedral was sanctified in 1858 and became the main church in Saint-Petersburg;
- Nikolskiy Naval Cathedral, a masterpiece done in baroque style with elements of traditional Russian architecture;
- The Peter and Paul Fortress, architectural and historical heart of Saint-Petersburg.
This is a city with a face to Europe, but a back to Russia that is best reflected in its Imperial past. It was the initiative of Tsar Peter the Great that the city was built stone by stone in 1703. When the struggle against tsarist oppression started in 1917, it led to the demise of the then-ruling Romanov dynasty. After that St Petersburg became a part of Soviet Union, surviving World War II and Nazi blockade.
Today, St. Petersburg has grown into the second largest city in Russia located alongside the waters of Neva River and stretches down to the shore of the Baltic Sea. All of the land is inhabited with 4.7 million-strong population, multicultural in its essence.
This ethnic composition includes Russian 84.72 percent, Ukrainian 1.87 percent, Jewish 0.78 percent and on. All of them live in one city, but everyone calls it distinctly from Petrograd, Leningrad and simply Peter.
