Holiday in a beautiful city
Rest should primarily be successful. You have to plan it properly, so you can get out of it as much as possible and make the best use. The condition for this to happen is the earlier term of their expectations and requirements of the proposed leave. Does it have to be in touch with nature, or rather active rest, which also gives you a chance to gain new knowledge and learn new and interesting places? In the latter case, the focus should be primarily on what we want to see. Is our interest is directed at popular tourist destinations, or would we rather choose niche space, niche of the city? Or maybe a specific cultural character of the city is of interest? Because it is also important. This can be the culture of the east, which surprises and enchants consistently? Perhaps more austerity styling cities under the influence of the Orthodox Church? Colorful, rich, and yet to some extent raw?
In the climate of the last considerations for special attention certainly deserves St. Petersburg, which today is somewhat better known as, simply Petersburg. It is a city located in the delta of the Neva on the Gulf of Finland. The place is very interesting in terms of both geographical, historical and architectural.
The city, over the years and throughout history has repeatedly changed its name and its character. Its first name, which was a reference to St. Peter’s was modeled on the Dutch naming, due to the fact that Tsar Peter I often traveled in those areas and this style of naming fell to him very liked. Then, the town was called St. Petersburg. Later, the name was slightly changed, in principle, its first member, who obtained germane sound St. During the First World War, there was another change. The city gained the name of Petrograd. This was to be a reference to the traditional Russian roots. It was to be an expression of patriotism and a departure from the German-sounding words. However, Petrograd not long maintained its new patriotic name. Ten years later, around 1924, its name was changed to Leningrad. It was connected with aspirations to celebrate important for Russia’s leader, Vladimir Lenin. Since then, for many years the city did not change its name until 1991, when it once again received the name of St. Petersburg. Currently, more often it used only the second segment, but it not change the city’s name.
Of course, it is very interesting not only because of its history of naming. It is also the cultural capital of Russia. Walking by the city is the endless delight due to the wealth of diverse architectural forms.
