To really feel all the beauty and harmony of St. Petersburg’s architecture one must stroll along the banks of the Neva, listen to the ripple of its waves, contemplate the city’s buildings, the vistas of its quays and canals.Only then will the city on the Neva reveal itself in all its charm – the charm of the wonderful and inimitable City of Bridges.
