It is almost impossible to believe that just over 300 years ago, St Petersburg was nothing more tha a giant swamp. Peter The Great deceided to built his new Capital here and give Russia a "window on Europe". The first stone was layed in 1703 and since then the city grew really fast. St Petersburg sprawls across the Neva river, and is next to the Gulf of Finland. The city saw many names, first St Petersburg, Petrograd, then Leningrag and St Petersburg again. Art lovers will not want to miss out on the really beautiful city. The city has got world class museums, the most importand and well known is the Hermitage. A short visit of a few days is not enough, if you want to see what the city has got on offer, I thing you need at least a year! A lot of people have nickname the city "the Venice of the North" because of the numerous canals in the city.
