Domik Petra Pervogo (The Cabin of Peter the Great)
Hidden behind a cluster of trees on the banks of the Neva is the oldest building in St Petersburg. This is a three-room log cabin, which was home to the city's founder, Peter the Great. He lived here in 1703 while supervising the construction and development of the city and the nearby Peter and Paul Fortress. It is a timber cottage that resembles a Russian farmhouse—with the exception of its large windows. It was erected in fewer than three days. Although the cabin houses some of the tsar's personal items as well as furniture, it is hard to imagine a leader of any country living in such a tiny dwelling.

St.Petersburg, is indeed the pearl of the World's architecture. It captures you by its breath-taking beauty, and dosen't let go. Just to walk amnog it's streets, to breathe the air of it's people gives you the most sensational feeling pride for Russia. It helps you to undertand more, and respect the great russian history. St. Petersburg's white nights are the most facinating, unlike anything I've ever seen before. The city of St. Petersburg, will forever stay in my memory as the most incedible peace of history in the world.
