Tell me about St. Petersburg in Russia I have to give a presentation in my class about St. Petersburg. I need to know about the government, language, religion, culture, ethnicities, national icons and other things. If anybody can tell me more about St. Petersburg and send me photos of the city, that would be wonderful.Thank you for the links.

Hi, My name is Art Gasparov and I am from Russia. I know that in our modern world there are a lot of people who don't know a lot about our country. I faced with this when I was working as a diplomat in Algeria. Actually I have been working there for 5 years so i had a lot of discussion and conversation with native Algerians about my country. Most of all foreigneres are interested whether all rummors about Russians are true. Most popular rimors were like if really all Russians drink vodka, or if there are real bears on Red Square (center of the capital Moscow) or does Russian mafia control the country. There was also a lot of simple and interesting question to discuss, such as if really it is too cold in Russia, is our country the biggest in the world, do Russians like Americans etc. I think that it is almost impossible to describe or tell about Russia in one topic, but any way I want to mention some kind of truth information about my country. Russians a simple and good people like all other nations in the world. Inside our country there are difficulties but every country has difficulties so I don't think it is good to put a special emphasis on our inner or external issues. What is more interesting is to learn about our history, traditions, way of life etc. I can advise you some links where you can find good and truthfull information about Russia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russia basic information http://www.rus-a.com/ this extensive information guide to Moscow and Russia where you can find good tips, secrets and information about lifestyle and traditions https://www.mos.ru/ official website of Moscow - the capital of Russia, avaliable in English. If you are going to Moscow you definitely need to check these webpages. I wish this information may be useful for you.

Saint Petersburg (Russian: Санкт-Петербург (help·info), tr. Sankt-Peterburg, pronounced [sankt pʲɪtʲɪrˈburk]) is a city and a federal subject (a federal city) of Russia located on the Neva River at the head of the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic Sea. The city's other names were Petrograd (Russian: Петроград, IPA [pʲɪtrɐˈgrat], 1914–1924) and Leningrad (Russian: Ленинград, IPA [lʲɪnʲɪnˈgrat], 1924–1991). It is often called just Petersburg (Russian: Петербург) and is informally known as Piter (Russian: Питер [ˈpitʲɪr]). Founded by Tsar Peter I of Russia on May 27, 1703, it was the capital of the Russian Empire for more than two hundred years (1713–1728, 1732–1918). Saint Petersburg ceased being the capital in 1918 after the Russian Revolution of 1917. It is Russia's second largest city after Moscow with 4.6 million inhabitants, and fourth in Europe after Istanbul, London and Moscow. Saint Petersburg is a major European cultural centre, and an important Russian port on the Baltic Sea. Saint Petersburg is often described as the most Western city of Russia.Among cities of the world with over one million people, Saint Petersburg is the northernmost. The Historic Centre of Saint Petersburg and Related Groups of Monuments constitute a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Saint Petersburg is also home to The Hermitage, the largest art museum in the world. Russia's political and cultural centre for 200 years, the city is sometimes referred to in Russia as the Northern Capital. Over its history it has also been referenced as "the Venice of the north" and the "Northern Palmyra". A large number of foreign consulates, international corporations, banks and other businesses are located in Saint Petersburg. search more :- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Petersburg
