Saint Petersburg (Санкт-Петербург)

The Russian answer to a classically beautiful, European city, stately St. Petersburg stands astride the many canals of the Neva River. Though it has long lost its regal status as the nation's capital, it in many ways remains Russia's "Window on the West", with its chic population and booming commercial sector.
