Saint-Petersburg is a city of White Nights

I love you, Peter’s great creation,
I love your view of stern and grace,
The Neva wave’s regal procession,
The grayish granite – her bank’s dress,
The airy iron-casting fences,
The gentle transparent twilight,
The moonless gleam of your nights restless,
When I so easy read and write
Without a lamp in my room lone,
And seen is each huge buildings’ stone
Of the left streets, and is so bright
The Admiralty spire’s flight.
A.S.Pushkin“The Bronze Horseman” (translated by Y.Bonver)
I live in Saint-Petersburg. It is one of the most beautiful cities in Russia and in the world. It is famous not only by its marvellous museums, palaces and parks but also it’s known as the city, which is situated on the islands. Today it stands on 42 islands. Saint-Petersburg is also called “Northern Venice”. There are about 90 rivers and canals in it. The most famous rivers are the Neva, the Fontanka and the Moyka. Tourists, who visit Saint-Petersburg, are fond of travelling along the rivers and canals by cutter. These excursions help to admire views of the city and to visit our memorable places.
Many people want to visit Saint-Petersburg in summer, especially in the end of June or in early July, because there are outstanding White Nights. It is the time, when it’s so light, that you can read newspaper in the street without street lamps. In the twilight of White nights Saint-Petersburg is more mysterious and beautiful. You should visit my city and look at the swinging bridges at white nights. Moreover in the end of June there is a special show for school-leavers – “Scarlet Sails”. There you can see fireworks, laser-show, listen to popular music. The culmination of this show is an appearance of the brigantine with scarlet sails. It’s really great sight! (Photos by T.
