Saint Petersburg is the second biggest city in Russia and the greatest Northern city, also called “the Northern Capital” or the “Cultural Capital” of the country. River Neva is crossing along the city, which is also the biggest Baltic Sea port city. The day of the foundation of Sankt Petersburg is considered to be the 16th of May 1703, under the reign of Peter the Ist. The territory was subject to diverse conflicts and disastrous destructions, coming to live only after the second world war, becoming during the twentieth century one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Over the time, it was renamed several times: after WWI the Bolsheviks called it Petrograd, then, in 1924, after Lenin’s death, it received the name of Leningrad in his memory. Also, for a certain period Saint Petersburg became the capital of Russia, at Peter the Ist’s insistence. Saint Petersburg lies on 42 islands united by 432 pedestrian bridges, highways and railroads. At nighttime, the bridges rise to allow the ships to proceed towards the sea. Granite pavements comprise the 70 rivers and canals that separate the islands. The climate is continental, with short and hot summers, while winters present themselves with low temperatures and heavy snows. The city is also very famous for its white nights, a real touristic attraction for anyone visiting.
