Saint Petersburg


Winter Palace:
Winter Palace in Saint Petersburg
Saint Petersburg (known from 1914 to 1924 as "Petrograd", and 1924 to 1991 as "Leningrad"), is a city in Russia, located on the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic Sea. As of the 2002 census, the city had a population of 4,661,219, making it the third largest city in Europe (after Moscow and London).

The city was originally founded by Tsar Peter the Great in 1703, and was capital of the Russian Empire for more than two hundred years (1712 to 1728, and 1732 to 1918). Tsar Peter originally intended for the city to be his "window to Europe", and, to this day, Saint Petersburg has a reputation as the most European of Russian cities.
