Unforgettable Drawbridge in St. Petersburg

Unforgettable Drawbridge Service in St. Petersburg

 

It is impossible not to surrender to the spells of this city. Its charming atmosphere both of light melancholy and romantic reflections arises from nowhere and accompanies you. As you are looking at all these old bridges being raised at lovely white nights, the unbelievably exquisitely decorated buildings making perfect architectural ensembles with each other, the channels of Neva, reflecting the lights of antique street lamp. Almost every tiny particle of St. Peterburg is full of aristocraticism and exclusiveness. Having been established by Peter the Great in 1712 as a “Window to Europe” to develop commercial, economic and cultural relations with European counrties, the city has become and remain Russia’s cultural capital. Some compare St. Peterburg with Venice (in favour of either), but the city is unique and authentic. The Winter Palace, St.Isaac’s Cathedral, the Kunstkamera, the Admiralty, Russian Museum (the largest museum of Russian art) are just the first several top attractions of the city that come into one’s mind. If you tasted Peterburg once, you won’t stop. For sure.
