Happy Birthday, Saint-Petersburg!

May 27 is the 316th anniversary of our city!

It was this date in 1703 that marked the beginning of the laying of the first stone by Peter the Great on the place where the construction of the future stone creation began.

St. Petersburg is proud of its historical heritage – the heritage of the Russian state and all mankind. The unique atmosphere of our city is a source of inspiration for many generations of writers and poets, musicians and artists, architects and scientists.

The city reveres its traditions, preserving them and trying to adhere to them in spite of everything, and citizens consider the day of its formation as one of the most important dates.

We wish all citizens of St. Petersburg good mood, warmth and sun, peace and happiness!

Happy holidays! Happy birthday, St. Petersburg!
