St Petersburg
Saint Petersburg is a city and a federal subject located in Northwestern Federal District of Russia on the Neva River at the east end of the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic Sea.

On May 1, 1703 Peter the Great took the Swedish fortress of Nyenskans and the city Nyen on the Neva river. On May 27, 1703 (May 16, Old Style) he founded the city after reconquering the Ingrian land from Sweden in the Great Northern War. He named the city after his patron saint, the apostle Saint Peter. The city was built under adverse weather and geographical conditions. High mortality rate required a constant supply of workers. Peter ordered a yearly conscription of 40,000 serfs, one conscript for every nine to 16 households.

Saint Petersburg experiences a humid continental climate. Summers are typically cool, humid and quite short, while winters are long, cold, but with frequent warm spells. The average daily temperature in July is 22C (72 F), summer maximum is about 34C (94F), winter minimum is about -27 C (-17 F).

The majestic appearance of St. Petersburg is achieved through a variety of architectural details including long, straight boulevards, vast spaces, gardens and parks, decorative wrought-iron fences, monuments and decorative sculptures. Such as the Summer Garden and Winter Palace. The largest cathedral in the city is St Isaac's Cathedral (18181858); it is the biggest gold-plated dome in the world.

St Petersburgs restaurant scene is becoming more exciting than ever, having truly banished bland Soviet versions of traditional dishes - both imperial and peasant - to the dustbin of history. Restaurants range from cosy caf-bistros to lavish multi-roomed halls befitting of royalty.

St Petersburg has a vibrant, varied nightlife ranging from opera and ballet to nightclubs, rock concerts, jazz clubs, and acid house raves. However, the scene is constantly changing - new venues open, old ones close. So the best advice is to check the weekly listings in the St Petersburg Times. Most of the decent nightlife is in the city centre. Bars open from 1100 and start closing around 2400, although some remain open until 0200 or 0400.
