It is a city where Peter the Great was creating some of the most important pages of Russian history, a city where Pushkin, Dostoyevsky, Tchaikovsky, Rimskiy-Korsakov found inspiration, where Rastrelli, Rossi, Montferrand were making their masterpieces. A city that withstood a 900-days Siege during the cruelest of wars of the XX century. A city of the White Nights, classic ballet and the open bridges.
