    Travel video about destination St.Petersburg in Russia.In 1703, Tsar
    Peter The Great founded St. Petersburg in the swampy delta mouth of
    the River Newa and today it is a living monument to the lives and
    times of Russia’s Imperial Tsars The Winter Palace contains
    Russia’s largest museum, the Eremitage, which houses more than two
    and a half million exhibits. Since Peter the Great, Russian rulers
    purchased many major works of art, but it was Catherine The Great
    who acquired complete collections from the auction houses of Europe.
    The Admiralty, with its needle-shaped, gold-plated tower, is one of
    the city’s most famous landmarks, its grand architecture depicting
    the emergence of Russia as a naval power and the marvellous Isaaks
    Cathedral has the third largest dome in the world. Twenty four
    thousand tree stumps were used for its foundations and it can
    accommodate a congregation of 14,000. At the widest part of the Newa
    is the regal and dominant, Peter And Paul Fortress that Peter The
    First had built to protect his capital city from Sweden and to guard
    Russia’s passage to the East Sea. The focal point of the fortress
    is the Peter And Paul Cathedral that served as the burial place of
    the Tsars and contains the marble coffin of Peter the Great. Russian
    Baroque and Russian Classicism were established in St. Petersburg
    – city of monumental events, outstanding architecture and an
    Imperial metropolis on the grand scale.
