As Russian Emperor Peter the Great wanted to make St Petersburg a real “Window on Europe”, he invited celebrated European architects to create a unique image of his capital. That’s why walking around the city today you will be amazed by a strange feeling of déjà vu: like you are strolling around Paris, Rome or Vienna. European aesthetics can be found in every corner in the city centre: charming terraces of little cafes and bars, beautiful parks, romantic canals will capture your mind forever.
