Petersburg is sometimes described as «the Venice of the North» or "the second Amsterdam," comparing it with cities located on low islands, interlaced with various waterways. The comparison is amply justified by the quantity of rivers, canals, islands and bridges to be found in the city. The city of St. Petersburg, the former capital of the Russian Empire and the embodiment of the pride and glory of the Russian state, was founded on May 27, 1703. The creation of the city was a daring feat. In order to realize his vision, Peter I, turning his back on the traditions of «ancient» Rus, called upon the new generation, which, with its fierce confidence and characteristic youthfulness, welcomed his ambitious plans. St. Petersburg became the symbol of a new era of Russian history and grandiose, unprecedented ventures. As if challenging nature itself, the Emperor resolved to create a northern «Paradise» on an area of marshy land that seemed perpetually wreathed in mist. Книга на английском языке.
