Photographer's Note

I happened to find myself in Saint-Petersburg for a week. Snowy, white and cold. I didn't mean to - I'm more of a sun person - but I sort of fell in love with the city. Oops!

Saint-Petersburg on the Neva River is Russia's most European city. Northern, arty and vibrant.


The Saint Petersburg Mint was a logical outcome of the transfer of the Russian capital to the city on the Neva. It was established by Peter the Great in 1724 inside the Peter and Paul Fortress as one of the most advanced coin manufacturers in Europe.

One of the oldest industrial enterprises in Saint Petersburg, it is still functioning today.
