in Saint-Petersburg


Some words about myself

My name is Nikolai. I was born in Archangel in the North of Russia. I moved to St Petersburg to receive my formal education at a military college. As a result I became the commander of platoon in Belaurs for 2.5 years during the Soviert era. After the collapse of the Soviert Union I returned to St Petersburg and civilian life.
Now I am a tour guide in summer and a graphic designer in winter and if you visit our wodnerful City I will be your best friend in St Petersburg. My interests include the history of Russia and St Peterburg, the English language and web design.

More about me and my life see in my photoalbum.

Pavlovsk

This is superb palace-and-park ensemble of the late XVIII - begining of the XIX centuries which was used as a summer residence of the Russian emperor Paul 1 and his family. The landscape park, one of the largest in Europe, covers the area of 600 ha. The works on the palace-and-park ensemble on the winding banks of the Slavyanka river lasted for 50 years.
