Saint Petersburg

Similar Galleries: Moscow Christmas 2019 | Moscow Metro | Catherine Palace and Amber Room | The Hermitage

St. Petersburg is the second largest city in Russia, the old imperial capital built by Peter the Great. The center is entirely comprised of 18th century palaces, ornate churches, and imperial ministries dating from the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Among my favorite buildings is Dom Knigi—House of Books—which takes up most of an ornate palace.
