Being the capital of Russia for two centuries, Saint Petersburg was built according to master plans with the participation of the most talented architects of Europe and Russia. As a result, we can now enjoy the open-air museum, the historical center of St. Petersburg and some of its suburbs are included in UNESKO World Heritage List. Petersburg is a city with a rich history and cultural heritage. The city of museums and theaters, ballet and opera, white nights, rivers and canals with granite embankments and drawbridges, the city of the Romanovs and Dostoevsky. Its magnificent architectural ensembles, grandiose squares and ancient fortresses fascinate not only the guests of the city, but also us, its inhabitants, because it is impossible to get used to such beauty!
