St. Petersburg is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and the most romantic city of Russia. It is a cultural capital of Russia and an important economic and scientific center of the country. The city was founded by Peter I in 1703. Originally it was planned as an outpost on the banks of the Neva river. For many years St. Petersburg was the capital of the Russian Empire and for two centuries it remained the centre of culture and art. Through the years it changed its name three times: in 1914 it became Petrograd and in 1924 was renamed into Leningrad in honour of V.I. Lenin. Only in 1991 the city returned its original name – St. Petersburg. Among the many poetical names applied to St. Petersburg the most common are “Northern Venice” and “Northern Palmyra”. In 1991 the city was placed on the UNESCO list of the world cultural heritage.
