Illustrated History of St. Petersburg

St. Petersburg's history is rich and truly exciting. The city witnessed so many dramatic events that one can hardly believe that St. Petersburg is not even 300 years old. Founded in 1703 to be the most European city of Russia, it remains Russia's "Window to the West" - just like Peter the Great ment it. St. Petersburg has always welcomed foreigners and newcomers from other parts of Russia. Those people created the cosmopolitan atmosphere which made St. Petersburg so special.
