An architecture with a lot of history
St. Petersburg is the second most populated city of the Russian Federation, founded by Tsar Peter the Great in May 1703 and center of the rebellion when the Russian Revolution broke out. Nowadays, is an imperial city planned and built by great European architects. In the historical center of the city, considered a World Heritage Site by Unesco in 1990, we find a spectacular religious architecture, with brilliant orthodox domes, famous throughout the world, as well as buildings representing Stalinist and modernist architecture.
Although not as well known, in St. Petersburg we can also find buildings of contemporary architecture, starting with the new Pulkovo airport terminal, planned by Grimshaw architects. We can also see the Yandex Office II building (for za bor architects) and the Lakhta Center, still under construction. The city, therefore, is a magnificent urban center for lovers of art, history and culture, which blend into New Holland Island, reopened to the public after many years thanks to the new project developed by WORKac.
