    nice pictures of St. Petersburg

    I hope I'm putting this post in the right forum...but here's a really neat St. Petersburg photography site. There are a lot of beautiful artsy pictures of the city, especially the black and white ones.

    Fantastic pictures of Stockholm, St Peterburg and Helsinki

    These pictures are really fantastic (!) as they truely shows the "soul" of these cities - also, vitally, representing them in their true, most natural and beautiful element - the winter! (Many pictures from Stockholm, the, by far oldest of the three)

    Please do take a look at the pictures of these Pictures. I know all of these cities very well and I sincearly recommend these pictures as good representants of the from each and every one of them. Watch these until you decide to go there!

    I agree. That's why I liked them so much. You can almost feel the cold air and hear the traffic looking at some of those pictures. It feels like you're really there.

    I like this picture a lot because that's how I remember the city in winter. I used to live very close to this place and that's very much how everything looked. The dirty snow on the ground all the cars at rush hour.

    And also this one. Look at how the whole road is covered with snow. And that's the main road in the city!

    astarz41 - You are truly great ! These are the kind of pictures that i google for at 4:00 am when i can't sleep and want to get all exited about russia. You have the same "respect", i guess, that i do for the kind of "city beauty" that most people just dont see in regular old cars and buildings. Thanks for the website, these are superb .
    Вот это да, я так люблю себя. И сегодня я люблю себя, ещё больше чем вчера, а завтра я буду любить себя to ещё больше чем сегодня. Тем что происходит,я вполне доволен!

    So what? Don't you know that SPb is located in latitude 60 north but Chicago is in 40 such as Sochy is. My town is in latitude 56 North but the climate is continental so the snow-drifts height in the winter is about 1-1.5 m.

    Cool and cooler

    Where I live now is about 1000 km more to the north than for ex. St Peterburg and Stockholm, but since there are no cities of that caliber here, these cities, other that beeing some of the worlds most beautiful, also represent the most northly of their kind - with their history and architecture!

    I know, you won't see anything like that in Chicago. St. Pete is one of the few big cities where there is so much snow the snow plows can't keep up with it. I meant to say that that's another thing that makes St. Pete a unique place.

    If a lot of snow in big city make it unique place, Murmansk, Vorkuta and Norilsk should be mentioned as another unique plases. Nowhere but in Russia cities of such size can be found beyond polar cirlce.

    Comparition

    Of course, but what I meant whas that, concidering the cultural and historical magnitude of these three "northliest" metropolises ( St Peterburg, Stockholm and Helsinki) there are just no competitors; and with that many inhabitants (St Peterburg has as much as 5 million , Sthlm - 1,8 millionand Helsinki around 0,8 million; All including suburbs.

    After all, they are all roughly equally far up north as southern Greenland...
