  st peter's gate
by cbeaujean

the day they put the first brick to build the fortress,the oldest building in st petersburg,on the 16th of may 1703,is considered as the city birthdate.
it's very rare to know so exactly a city birtdate!
they prepare something great for the tricentenary.....in 2003...

on the gate,tsar's armory.a bicephalous eagle.
