Why St. Petersburg?

Why St. Petersburg?

St. Petersburg is the most beautiful city in Russia and probably in the whole world.

Founded in 1703 by Peter the Great as a "Window to Europe", more than two centuries it was the capital of Russian Empire. Here you will discover the beautiful architecture of 18-19 centuries, famous white nights and drawbridges, many theatres and cultural facilities. It is sometimes called European, northern and cultural capital of Russia.

St. Petersburg is a major trade gateway, financial and industrial centre of Russia specialising in oil and gas trade, shipbuilding yards, aerospace industry, radio and electronics, software and computers; machine building, heavy machinery and transport etc. 

It is also known as the "beer capital" of Russia, due to the supply and quality of local water, contributing over 30% of the domestic production of beer.

It is the most visited city of Russia: about 2,5 mln foreign tourists come annually. 

They say, that it is possible to leave the city, but it stays in your heart forever.

OK, let me see what the School is about!
