Saint Petersburg


Saint Petersburg is a city and a federal subject ( a federal city ) of Russia located on the Neva River at the head of the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic Sea. St. Petersburg recently celebrated its 300th anniversary.

The city has an area of 606 sq. km., but if you include the immediate suburbs on the lowlands along the Neva and the Gulf of Finland, it is 1439 sq. km. The city measures 44 km from north to south and 25 km from east to west.

St. Petersburg developed according to a strict, well thought-out plan, which had been finalized by 1712. The wide Neva and all the numerous other rivers and canals were incorporated into the city design and created its scale. 1865 saw the division of the city into 12 administrative sections. It is now divided into 20 administrative districts. According to the latest census, taken in 2000, 4,695,000 people currently live in St. Petersburg.

The St. Petersburg climate is influenced by the huge expanses of the Atlantic Ocean and its immediate proximity to the Gulf of Finland; water also accounts for 10% of the city area -- a great number of rivers, lakes and marshes.


The region varies from a marine to a continental climate, mild and humid, with a significant amount of cloudy weather, frequent mists and substantial rainfall. In summer the city enjoys periods of hot, dry weather when the temperature can reach 35 degrees C. The average temperature in winter is -- 7.8 degrees C.


The largest of the public higher education institutions is Saint Petersburg State University, enrolling approximately 32,000 undergraduate students; and the largest non-governmental higher education institutions is the Institute of International Economic Relations, Economics and Law. Other famous universities are Saint Petersburg Polytechnical University, Herzen University and Saint Petersburg Military engineering-technical university. However, the public universities are all federal property and do not belong to the city.


St. Petersburg is built on 42 islands at the Neva delta where the river flows into the Gulf of Finland. It is one of the worlds leading cities in terms of its number of rivers, islands and bridges. St. Petersburg is sometimes called a museum of bridges - it has over 300 of them.

69 rivers and other waterways flow through the city and its immediate environs; within the city limits there are 40 rivers, tributaries, canals and other waterways with a total length of 217.5 km. The principal ones are the Great and Lesser Neva, the Great, Medium and Lesser Nevka, the Fontanka, the Karpovka, the Okhta, the Zhdanovka, the Moika, Chernaya Rechka and the Obvodnyy Canal.


A great deal in St. Petersburg artistic decoration is reminiscent of the city naval glory, which is inextricably linked with the expanses of the Baltic Sea. Peter I did all he could to ensure that the sails of Russian ships were seen along the Baltic coast. Russia became a formidable naval power, confirming its superiority with glorious victories and round-the-world voyages.
