    (of course , i’m not comparing Belo Horizonte with St. Petersburg, but both are planned cities)

  9. [...] English Russia ran a pictorial a few days ago with images of Saint Petersburg from the mid to late 1800s, pretty much the golden era for the city when it was the capital of Russia and the tsars were at the height of their power. Originally modeled after Dutch cities that Peter the Great admired, the architecture in the city is unlike anything anywhere else in Russia. Far from the painted tent tops of buildings like Saint Basil’s in Moscow, Saint Petersburg’s buildings had white marble fronts with neo-Classical sensibilities. The whole city was the culmination of Peter the Great’s mission to make Russia part of the Western world. [...]

      St. Pete is the only European city in Russia. Moscow is a disaster, and with Luzjkov at the helm it’s not improving, concrete and glass bricks are erected everywhere..

    This and other series of old photos posted here, and at other Russki sites are quite interesting. I would just like (as many others would) some explanation/captions of just what we’re seeing here, and at similar displays elsewhere not involving Rossia. I’ve been to ‘Sant’ twice so catch some of it – Winter Palace, Stock Exchange, Light houses, (is it? St. Pauls?). But most foreigners will not recognize anything, so meaning is lost.
    I see these unexplained images all over the internet and find it careless and even deplorable. Why bother posting/downloading to “English/Russian” what you are unwilling to explain???
