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).

    Moskovski Prospekt
    Спасибо Poolbar, you are right. Of course, it is Moskovski Prospekt! Many thanks for your remark. You know your home-town well.
    I remember: The look is in city direction. Behind the left building I found Mc Donalds :-))
    On the right behind the bushes is the place Moskovskaya. My numerous photos of the place demonstrate: the atmosphere of the place I've well liked.

    I've corrected my mistake.
