The winter palace in st. Petersburg is a treasure

A short stay in st. Petersburg is not a good way to get a taste of the city, especially for such a 300-year-old cultural and artistic city. If you have to choose the best part of it, it must be the three palaces: “winter palace”, “Peter Summer Palace” and “ekaterina palace”.
During the several days in st. Petersburg, I will mainly visit the three palaces: the winter palace and the palace square, the Summer Palace and the lower garden, and the yekaterina palace and the garden. The tsars of the romanov dynasty in Russian history were the contemporaries of kangxi and qianlong of the qing dynasty in Chinese history, and only two of them, Peter I and Catherine ii, were honored as “the great”. They had presided over the construction or participated in the expansion of these splendid buildings with distinctive features.

Many russians think of st. Petersburg as the nation’s capital, not Moscow. Peter the great moved the capital from Moscow in 1712 until 1918. Even now people call her the capital of northern Russia. Peter the great built it into a port on the Baltic sea and became Russia’s “window” to the west. For 300 years, st. Petersburg absorbed the essence of eastern and western cultures and gradually became a shining pearl on the Baltic sea.

The brightest part of the jewel is the famed winter palace, the imperial palace of the tsars. It was built between 1754 and 1762 on the orders of Catherine the second, the empress. We enter through the main entrance of the winter palace, which Lenin attacked during the October revolution. Every summer is a busy season for tourists.
