Saint-Petersburg was founded on 16 May, 1703. Several generations of talented Russian and foreign architects were engaged in the planning and con­struction of Petersburg’s downtown. The Peter and Paul Fortress was built to protect the Neva banks from Swedish invasion. Later D.Trezzini, the famous Swiss archi­tect, reconstructed the fortress. It became a prison. Now it is a museum. D.Trezzini erected the Peter and Paul Cathedral here, which is a masterpiece of architecture. Russian tsars were buried in it. Petersburg is one of the world's most beautiful cities.

The Summer Garden, the Winter Palace, the Hermitage, the monument to Peter I, the Russian Museum are the city's remarkable architectural sights.

Soon after Petersburg appeared, it turned into the main center of Russian sci­ence and culture. Outstanding scholars like M.V. Lomonosov, D.I. Mendeleyev, I.P. Pavlov and many others engaged themselves in activities of the Academy of Sci­ences and the University. A.S. Pushkin, M.Y. Lermontov, N.A. Nekrasov glorified the city in many of their works.

There are many memorial places in the city that relate to life and creative work of the great Russian writers N.V. Gogol, T.M. Dostoevsky, the composers M.I. Glinka, P.I. Chaikovskiy, M.P. Musorgskiy. N.A. Rimskiy - Korsakov, the painters K.P. Bryullov, I.Y. Repin, I.N. Kramskoy, V.I. Surikov, etc.

St. Petersburg today is a centre of science and culture, well-developed industries including shipbuilding, a large international port on the Baltic Sea.

St. Petersburg is famous for its suburbs. Petrodvorets (Peterhof), Pushkin (Tsarskoe Selo), Pavlovsk, Lomonosov are museums of history and art. Russian and foreign tourists visit St-Petersburg suburbs to see outstanding pieces of Russian art.

Magnificent architectural ensembles, sculptures, a unique water-duck system for numerous fountains, fine examples of park-landscape art make one solemnly proud of the generations of Russian people who have managed to create, in rotten swamp, such great masterpieces of human genius.

Anyone who visits St-Petersburg will always be tempted to come back.
