Travel Pics: Saint Petersburg, Russia
Saint Petersburg is located on the Neva River, at the head of the Gulf of Finland; the easternmost arm of the Baltic.
On a photo walk in Russia's second largest city I chose to frame the golden dome of Saint Isaac's Cathedral within an anchor; to emphasize Saint Petersburg's connection with the sea.
Founded by Peter the Great in 1703, Saint Petersburg became the imperial capital of Russia until 1918.
The Baltic port was also known as Petrograd in 1914, then Leningrad in 1924, before reverting back to Saint Petersburg in 1991.
