Photographer's Note

St. Petersburg was built in a short time, to compete with major European cities of the time, like Paris, Rome and Amsterdam. The result was a very successfull reflection of the ambitions of tzar Peter the Great. Baroque spirit can be seen everywhere in the details of the city with its all-power.

A friend of mine who is a Paris fan quotes this sentence after his visit to the city: "This one surpasses Paris in all aspects: St Petersburg is bigger and more beautiful than Paris"

I cannot comment on this, i haven't seen Paris yet.
