titlePastel colors elegance of the early fall
locationSt. Petersburg, Russia
infoBreathtaking scenery and awe-inspiring panorama of the historic centre of Saint Petersburg. Picturesque Neva river view of Palace Embankment along with the skyline dominants of the world-famous State Hermitage Museum, Baroque-style Winter Palace, dome of Saint Isaac's Cathedral, one of the twin Rostral Columns at the The Spit of Vasilievsky Island, spire of the Admiralty building, headquarters of the Imperial Russian Navy established by tsar Peter the Great. All-time favorite tourist and pro-photography destination. Many sightseeing boats and tours are available for hire there. Nota bene, with all these splendid islands, this spectacular architecture of the XVIIIth century and enormous amount of stunning bridges Saint Petersburg is often referred to as the 'Venice of the North', for all good reasons. This is where most of it started for the Russian Empire!
