St Petersburg architecture...
... can literally take your breath away.
The amazing spectacle of colour on the buildings makes St Petersburg unique.
The visible history as you wander around the streets and along the rivers and canals is remarkable. Despite this city only being just over 300 years old, it boasts remarkable heritage that include 3 names, and was twice the capital of Russia.
It certainly looks better than it did in James Bond's Goldeneye. I suspect it got a reasonable lick of paint in time for its 300 year anniversary in 2003.
If this city is on your ‘bucket list’, book it...
The technical bits
The only disappointment from a photographer's perceptive is the use of overhead power-lines which presents a challenge. Time to brush up on those Photoshop skills. 🙂
Inspired to visit St Petersburg?
It is a fabulous, vibrant city, known as the gateway to Russia. We'd definately recommend it.
