About Russia: St. Petersburg
This city is also known as the Northern capital of Russia. It is also considered the cultural centre of Russia. St. Petersburg offers for your attention numerous museums containing the rich history of Russian art (among them is the world famous Hermitage), endless historic monuments and memorials, which reflect the times of the tsars and emperors. The city is also well known for its "white nights" - the period of the year when due to the closeness to the Arctic circle the daylight time lasts almost 24 hours a day.
But despite such rich cultural content, the city impresses with its magnificence. This is something that is felt in every piece of architecture as you walk down any street.
