The history of St Petersburg

The city, which was founded as a small fortress and just in couple of years became the principle one. It was the capital of Russian Empire and still bears the hallmark of this "Golden Era" of Russian history, art and literature. St Petersburg has a lot of stories to share and secrets to discover - and we will help you to do it!
The meaning of Alexander Column
This huge construction right in the center of Palace Square was not built just in order to impress people (however, it still does!), but to celebrate the victory of Alexander I over Napoleon in Patriotic War. It reminds us of Vandome column in Paris - the monument, dedicated to victories of Napoleon - and, for sure, exceeds it!
How Kazan Cathedral survived in times of Soviet era
The cathedral was named after the icon of Our Lady of Kazan, which is believed to be "miracle-making". It was housed here till the early 1930s.
The Bolsheviks closed the cathedral for services in 1929, and from 1932 it housed the collections of the Museum of the History of Religion and Atheism, which displayed numerous pieces of religious art and served anti-religious propaganda purposes.
Legends of Singer House
It was thought to become the first skyscraper of St Petersburg - but the rules, protecting the city landscape didn't allow the architect to realize his principle idea. However, Singer House, nowadays the headquarters for famous Russian company,, remains the hallmark of Nevsky Prospect.
