Last week I went to St.Petersburg. That is why my latest posts here were scheduled and I could not visit your blogs (and sorry about that).
I decided that today I show you the second largest city in Russia and the one so unique and worth your visit. As patriot-Muscovite I can tell that the visited city was too straightforward for me, with its balanced streets, roads, mostly18th century buildings, almost no trees, so opposite in every way to chaotic Moscow.
But anyway, I have to admit, it is so beautiful and so original and special.

Let's break the CDPh rules (again) and do some National_Geographic today!
More photos here. As there are more then 15 photos total, I hide them under cut.
