DESCRIPTION

A very detailed historical tour of Russia’s "Venice of the North" is presented here in twelve, 10-minute programs. Depicted are the major sights of the former capital, including its many churches and palaces, while the English narration describes the history of the city and discusses the changing art styles. Viewing this program is an ideal way for people who have been in St. Petersburg to "recapture" their experience; for those who have not yet been so fortunate to visit this charming city, it is a great way to visit it vicariously; and it is a great way to prepare in advance, for those intending to visit this splendid city of the "white nights."
