Sankt Petersburg

Saint Petersburg (short: SPb, Russian: Санкт-Петербург) is a city of Russia located on the Neva River at the head of the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic Sea. It is informally known as Piter (Пи́тер). SPb is the northernmost city of the world with over one million people. SPb is often described as the most Westeuropean city of Russia.
From 1924 to 1991, in honor of Lenin, the founder of the Soviet Union, the city was called Leningrad (Ленинград).

    What joy it is to see such beautiful, elegant buildings still exist in today's world. They not only have charm, but it's like visiting a museum on every street corner. No two buildings have the same design details.
    After viewing your marathon pictures the other night, I wanted to see more photos of St. Petersburg, as well as information about this beautiful city. In the process, I came across a download for EarthGoogle. I've never liked Google for anything; however, after reading what the program was about, I downloaded it. I found lots of breathtaking photographs, along with other interesting facts. Have you tried EarthGoogle yet? If you haven't, you might want to check it out. In fact, you've got such a wide variety of lovely photos on St. Petersburg and other cities, you may wish to share them on this fabulous site.
    I'm looking forward, dearest Manfred, to having you as my tour guide through this album.
