St. Petersburg is the second largest city in Russia and one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It is situated on the Neva River. St. Petersburg was founded in 1703 by Peter the Great. Thousands of workmen were brought from all parts of Russia to build a new city on swampy land at the mouth of the Neva. When the work was finally finished, amazing and beautiful appeared and became the capital.

Famous European architects were invited to St. Petersburg, A lot of buildings were constructed of expensive granite. The Winter Palace, the home of the tsars, is richer than any palace in Europe.

Now it is the city with the population of 5mln people. It is an important industrial, cultural and educational centre. It is no more the capital of Russia, but very often it is called the second capital of our country.

St. Petersburg is a wonderful city. It surprises and amazes the tourists and citizens. There are a lot of impressive buildings in St. Petersburg. For example, the Admiralty building, St. Isaac's Cathedral, the Peter-and-Paul Fortress and others. Some of the world's famous art collections are housed in Petersburg's museums. The Hermitage, for example, contains richest collection of paintings in the world. The city is called Northern Venice because there are 65 rivers and canals there. It's also famous for its beautiful white nights, St. Petersburg has always been a great attraction to many tourists from abroad. Nowadays our government tries to make St. Petersburg comfortable for visitors.

My favourite place in Saint-Petersburg is Dvorzovaya square. It is the biggest square in Russia. I can say with a proud that I have born in Saint-Petersburg. I think that it is the most beautiful cities in the world. At the same time it gives a lot of opportunities for education and employment. The only disadvantage I think is the climate, which doesn't provide any health for people, who live here.
