About this product
- DescriptionFor more than three centuries, St Petersburg, founded in 1703 by Peter the Great as Russia's westward-oriented capital and as a visually stunning showcase of Russia's imperial ambitions, has been the country's most mythologized city. This volume traces the ways in which St Petersburg has become a museum piece, embodying history, and nostalgia.
