    See what capitalism can do, Imperial Russia built this magnificent city.

  4. Testicules says:

    You’re so right Archy. Capitalism is Russia’s only hope.

  5. Grinya says:

    Just learn history. It’s wasn’t capitalism era when this city was built. Only feudalism and again thousands deaths under it. St Petersburg was built on bones. Everyone in Russia knows it.

    Wow, I’m surprised how clean it is. No graffiti.

      The facades are beautiful but if you go inside the buildings you will notice what state of disarray the building really is. How do I know? I lived in one such building facing the Neva. The facade was repainted by the city so it looks sparkling yellow. But as soon as you go inside, something foreigners never do, you’ll see that the stairs is broken, the floors are dirty and the ceiling is peeling.

      Now before the nationalists start tearing their hair out I have to say there is improvement (although slow) in many places. Basically I noticed if someone from the government, business or the police lives in the building those tend to be repaired quickly.

    Can we dispatch somebody to do a photo tour of those ships?

    What is the name of the sailing battleship? I didn’t know Petersburg had such a vessel. Looks like the flagship of a brown water navy.

  9. Dmitry says:

    It`s cruiser Aurora

    Sailing battleship on the Petrovskaya embankment – frigate “Blagodat” (in English “Grace”)

    Yay, the first image.
    Brings back memories of all the adults telling me not jump off the bridges or piers as there might be pilings from the previous bridges or piers hidden underwater.
    There is something in the water that keeps them good for decades; only the supermerged* parts rot away.

    *) antonym of submerged
