St Petersburg has remained almost unchanged since it was built in the 18th and 19th centuries. Conceived by Peter the Great as a ’window to the west’, the city became a living exhibit of Russia’s status as an important European nation. Situated on a network of canals, the light reflects off the water to illuminate the colourful buildings and add to the city’s beauty. Designed to impress visitors, St Petersburg is home to sumptuous palaces, impressive cathedrals and numerous museums, including one of the world’s largest and finest, the Hermitage.
