Photographer's Note

St-Petersburg always was quite cosmopolitic city. It always housed a lot of not-Russian citizens; for example now 4 000 Germans, 4 000 Finns, 1 500 Greeks and 4 500 Poles and so on and so on are living in it.
This called for some other churches, not Orthodox ones, to be built.
So here are one of the landmarks of Nevsky Avenue, Lutheran Church of Apostles Peter and Pavel, more known as Petrikirche.
Built in year 1832, it's one of the several Lutheran churches in St-Petersburg and also the concert hall.
