Saint Petersburg: Museums, Palaces and Historic Collections: A Guide to the Lesser Known Treasures (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


This is a welcome guide to St Petersburg's 'other' museums, palaces, collections and gardens. This volume also includes information on: opening times, directions, what to expect, a brief history, and much more! St Petersburg is a city with an incredibly rich history and cultural heritage - founded by Tsar Peter I of Russia in 1703, it was the capital of the Russian Empire for more than two-hundred years. It is also home to more than 200 museums, numerous palaces, and historic collections. From the Museum on the Crusier Avrora, the battleship that fired the first shots of the Russian Revolution, to the Komarov Botanical Gardens, "Saint Petersburg" is a superbly illustrated volume that offers readers a practical and insightful guide to the city's lesser known - but no-less important or impressive - museum, palaces, and collections.
