Being on my business trip in St.Petersburg where I go very often I visited the Hermitage Museum as ever this time my main purpose was the exhibition dedicated to my favorite modern architect S. Calatrava - “Santiago Calatrava. The Quest for Movement”. The White Nikolaevsky Hall of the Winter Palace was a magnificent frame for the Calatreva's wonderful architectural models. Besides it was a chance to enjoy his paintings and sculptures I had never seen before. The exhibition lasts till the end of September and if visiting the Hermitage Museum is on your plans don't miss it.
Very vivid city! So many young people in the streets day and night!!! Being fond of jazz music we have been told that the city is a capital of Russian jazz. So it is! We enjoyed the great concert on the ship. Thank you!!!
It is the Great city. We are excited to have visited it. Everyone should at least once in the life. We fell in love with the city. I like walking and the city is comfortable for doing this. The center is fascinating. There are straight streets, large squares. It is impossible to get lost. In two days. Don't miss Peterhof. It is strongly recommended. The fountains are marvelous. Hope it is not the last time for me.
The main purpose of visiting Saint-Petersburg was to attend the Mariinsky theater. I am an opera admirer! Everyone knows that Russia is the first in classical ballet, but now due to maestro Gergiev opera is also very good in Mariinsky. “Chovanshina” by Mussorgsky on the 26 of October was a great experience for me! Bravo Olga Borodina (Marfa). Thank you!!!
