Welcome to a city that was created from scratch in 1703, in the middle of a swamp ... but by the passion of a man, Peter-the-Great, this city became amazing, and you can see huge classical palaces and cathedrals reflecting in the waters of the Neva and the canals, or in their ice... All what Europe built, Saint Petersburg wanted it, and built it, with the help of the greatest architects of the time. And renovated it, after this city deeply rooted in history, has experienced the throes of war and Bolshevism under the name of Leningrad.
