St Petersburg is a unique city – part traditionally Russian, part modern European, with an exceptional history and heritage. This astonishing city has long inspired a flood of poets, artists and revolutionaries, and combines the personality of three unique cities into one. It was St Petersburg for the Tsars, Petrograd for a nation at war, and Leningrad for the followers of the Bolshevik Revolution.
