St.Petersburg is the city of Russian inteligence

St.Petersburg is the city of famous Russian poet Alexandr Pushkin. Pushkin loved this city very much. He wrote about Sankt Petersburg many poems, the most popular of them are "Eugeny Onegin" and "The Copper Horseman".

Hello comrade Lenin!

The building in the beckground of photo is Smolny palace. It is famous because in 1917 there was the first Soviet state administration and Vladimir Lenin - the father of Russian revolution. The Smolny palace befor the revolution was the college for girls.

    Thank you for the tour through this city. You must always be climbing, jumping or flying around-very agile

    Really nice pics and good tips! I'd like to visit Russia one day! Just one thing: the Italian architect surname should be "Rossi" and not Rossy...
