It’s impossible not to fall in love with the Northern capital of Russia. If you are planning a trip to the city or want to get nostalgic of your journey, here are some movies of St Petersburg to bring up the memories.
The Stroll/ Progulka (2002)
Very summery and light film shot as a real-time walk of three young and free people: two male friends and a girl. Over 90 minutes of a view you’ll be like among them enjoying a romantic trip around the city. It all starts at Nevsky prospekt where the characters meet. There will be everything in the movie – journey, beauty and love. You’ll see city promenades, grand canals, ornate bridges and urban architecture that you’ll truly fall in love with.
Piter FM (2006)
Another love story surrounded by a special atmosphere of Petersburg. The film is light, relaxing and very romantic. It’s a story of two people falling in love over a phone communication. They don’t know each other, but now and then accidentally meet on the streets of a megalopolis. Will they actually get to know each other? You’ll know it in the end, but before will witness lots of beautiful moments in different sites of Saint Petersburg.
Attack on Leningrad (2009)
The city got through very hard and severe times, especially during the 900-days Siege in the times of the World War II. This film is for those who want to get an impression of how it was to live and survive in the city of those times. There was hunger, bombing, death and hope. Hope and desire to live. The film is a UK and Russia produced movie, so it’s originally shot in English.
Hope you like these movies! For planning the actual trip to Saint Petersburg check the city attractions, hotels and restaurants. Also pick a guided tour you like the most.
