Welcome to White Nights HDR
Made by ISIK5
Welcome to St. Petersburg and the white nights. If you check out the clock on the clock tower you can see that it's almost 10:30 but the interesting part is; it's 10:30 pm!!! It's 10:30 pm and as you see the sun is still up on the sky. It's because of the white nights. The White Nights describes the few weeks around the summer solstice in June in areas of high latitude during which sunsets are late, sunrises are early and darkness is never complete. The White Nights are a time of celebration in areas such as Saint Petersburg, Russia. Owing to the high northern latitude at 60 degrees, the Sun does not set until after 10 p.m., and the twilight lasts much longer. The White Nights Festival in Saint Petersburg is famous for spectacular fireworks and a massive show celebrating the end of school year. And as for the building it's called the Moskovsky vokzal. Moskovsky Rail Terminal (Моско́вский вокза́л, Moskovsky vokzal), also called Moscow Rail Terminal, with an easily recognizable Neo-Renaissance frontage on Nevsky Prospekt and Uprising Square, is the main line terminal station in Saint Petersburg, Russia. It is a terminus for the Moscow-Saint Petersburg Railway and other lines running from Central and South Russia, Siberia, Eastern Ukraine, and Crimea. The oldest preserved station in the city, it was erected in 1851 to a design by Konstantin Thon. As Nicholas I of Russia was the reigning monarch and the greatest patron of railway construction in the realm, the station was named Nicholaevsky after him. Rechristened Oktyabrsky to memorialize the October Revolution in 1924, the station was not given its present name until 1930. Although large Venetian windows, two floors of Corinthian columns and a two-storey clocktower at the centre explicitly reference Italian Renaissance architecture, the building incorporates other features from a variety of periods and countries. A twin train station, currently known as the Leningradsky Rail Terminal, was built to Thon's design at the other end of the railway, in Moscow. While Thon's facade remains fundamentally intact to this day, the station was expanded in 1869-79 and 1912. It was completely redeveloped internally in 1950-52 and 1967. A bronze bust of Peter the Great in the main vestibule was unveiled in 1993. The terminal is served by the Mayakovskaya and Vosstaniya Square stations of the Saint Petersburg Metro, with both stations linked to the terminal by an underground corridor.
St. Petersburg, Russia - Cathedrals 1 (5 pictures)

1. THE CHURCH OF OUR SAVIOR ON THE SPILLED BLOOD on Kanal Griboyedova in 5 pictures This marvelous Russian-style church was built on the spot where Emperor Alexander II was assassinated in March 1881. After assuming power in 1855 in the wake of Russia’s disastrous defeat in the Crimean war against Britain, France and Turkey, Alexander II initiated a number of reforms. In 1861 he freed the Russian serfs (peasants, who were almost enslaved to their owners) from their ties to their masters and undertook a rigorous program of military, judicial and urban reforms, never before attempted in Russia. However, during the second half of his reign Alexander II grew wary of the dangers of his system of reforms, having only barely survived a series of attempts on his life, including an explosion in the Winter Palace and the derailment of a train. Alexander II was finally assassinated in 1881 by a group of revolutionaries, who threw a bomb at his royal carriage. The decision was taken to build a church on the spot where the Emperor was mortally wounded. The church was built between 1883 and 1907 and was officially called the Resurrection of Christ Church (a.k.a. The Church of Our Savior on Spilled Blood ). The construction of the church was almost entirely funded by the Imperial family and thousands of private donators. Both the interior and exterior of the church is decorated with incredibly detailed mosaics, designed and created by the most prominent Russian artists The church was closed for services in the 1930s, when the Bolsheviks went on an offensive against religion and destroyed churches all over the country. It remained closed and under restoration for over 30 years and was finally re-opened in 1997 in all its dazzling former glory. See next pictures in comment boxes...
Смольный монастырь (The Smolny Convent)
Made by foje64
The Smolny Convent of the Resurrection, located on Ploschad Rastrelli, on the bank of the River Neva in Saint Petersburg, Russia, consists of a cathedral and a complex of buildings surrounding it. Smolny Convent was originally built to house the daughter of Peter the Great, Elizabeth, after she was disallowed to take the throne and opted instead to become a nun. However, as soon as her Imperial predecessor, Ivan VI, was overthrown during a coup, carried out by the royal guards, Elizabeth decided to forget the whole idea of a stern monastic life and happily accepted the offer of the Russian throne. Smolny Convent is one of the architectural masterpieces of the Italian architect Rastrelli, who also created the Winter Palace, the Grand Catherine Palace in Tsarskoye Selo, the Grand Palace in Peterhof and many other major St. Petersburg landmarks. After Elizabeth death in 1762 the new Empress, Catherine the Great, strongly disapproved of the baroque style, and funding that had supported the construction of the convent rapidly ran out. Rastrelli was unable to build the huge bell-tower he had planned and unable to finish the interior of the cathedral. The building was only finished in 1835 by Vasily Stasov with the addition of a neo-classical interior to suit the changed architectural tastes at the time. The Cathedral was consecrated 1835.

Александровская колонна Ночью (The Alexander Column at Night)
Made by foje64
This is the Alexander Column, the focal point of Palace Square in Saint Petersburg, Russia. The monument was erected after the Russian victory over Napoleonic France in the Patriotic War of 1812. The Column is named after Emperor Alexander I. The Alexander Column was designed by the French-born architect Auguste de Montferrand, built between 1830 and 1834, and unveiled on August 30, 1834. The monument, the tallest of its kind in the world, is 47.5 metres tall and is topped with a statue of an angel holding a cross. The statue of the angel was designed by the Russian sculptor Boris Orlovsky. The face of the angel bears great similarity to the face of Emperor Alexander I. In the background you can see the General Staff Building, designed by Carlo Rossi in the Empire style and built in 1819-1829. It consists of two wings, which are separated by a tripartite triumphal arch adorned by sculptors Stepan Pimenov and Vasily Demuth-Malinovsky and commemorating the Russian victory in the war with Napoleon's France. Until the capital was transferred to Moscow in 1918, the building served as the headquarters of the General Staff (western wing), Foreign Ministry and Finance Ministry (eastern wing).

Собор Казанской иконы Божией Матери (The Cathedral of Our Lady of Kazan)
Made by foje64
This is the Cathedral of Our Lady of Kazan located on the Nevsky Prospekt in Saint Petersburg, Russia. The cathedral was built in 1801-1811 by the architect Andrei Voronikhin with the intention to be the main Orthodox Church in Russia. It is dedicated to Our Lady of Kazan, probably the most venerated icon in Russia. As you can see the cathedral is inspired by the Basilica of Saint Peter in Rome despite that the Russian Orthodox Church strongly disapproved of Voronikhin's idea to create a replica of the Catholic basilica in the Capital of Russia. The Bolsheviks closed the cathedral for services in 1929, and from 1932 it housed the collections of the Museum of the History of Religion and Atheism, which displayed numerous pieces of religious art and served anti-religious propaganda purposes. In 1991 regular church services where resumed in the cathedral and it were reconsecrated in 1998. Since 2000 it has the status as the main cathedral in Saint Petersburg. The statue infront of the cathedral’s right colonnade is a memorial to Michael Barclay de Tolly, Russian Field Marshal and Minister of War during Napoleon's invasion of Russia in 1812.

Moyka river, St. Petersburg
Made by piker77
Digital watercolor. The Moyka River (Russian: Мо́йка) is a small (5 km long, 40 m wide) river which encircles the central portion of Saint Petersburg, effectively making it an island. The river, originally known as Mya, derives its name from the Ingrian word for slush, mire. The river flows from the Fontanka River near the Summer Garden past the Field of Mars, crosses Nevsky Prospekt and the Kryukov Canal before entering the Neva River. It is also connected with the Neva by the Swan Channel and the Winter Channel. In 1711, Peter the Great ordered the banks of the river to be consolidated. After the Kryukov Canal linked it with the Fontanka River four years later, the Moyka became so much clearer that its name was changed from Mya to Moyka, associated with the Russian verb to wash. In 1736, the first Moyka quay was constructed in wood. Four bridges originally spanned the river: the Blue, the Green, the Yellow, and the Red. The 99-meter-wide Blue Bridge, now hardly visible underneath St. Isaac's Square, remains the widest bridge in the whole city. Among the magnificent 18th-century edifices lining the Moyka quay are Stroganov Palace, Razumovsky Palace, Yusupov Palace, New Holland Arch, Circular Market, St. Michael's Castle, and the last accommodation and museum of Alexander Pushkin. In 1798, work started to construct a stately embankment faced with red granite and adorned with ornate railings. After construction works were completed in 1811, it was discovered that the water of the river became so muddy that its use for cooking has been officially forbidden ever since.
Зимний дворец (The Winter Palace)
Made by foje64
This is the Winter Palace in Saint Petersburg, Russia, the official residence of the Russian Tsars from 1732 to 1917. The palace was constructed on a monumental scale that was intended to reflect the might and power of Imperial Russia. It was designed by many architects, most notably Bartolomeo Rastrelli, in what came to be known as the Elizabethan Baroque style. The Winter Palace was built between 1754 and 1762 for Empress Elizabeth, the daughter of Peter the Great. Unfortunately, Elizabeth died before the palace’s completion and only Catherine the Great and her successors were able to enjoy the sumptuous interiors of Elizabeth’s home. Many of the palace’s impressive interiors have been remodelled since then, particularly after 1837, when a huge fire destroyed most of the building. Today the Winter Palace, together with four more buildings arranged side by side along the river embankment, houses the extensive collections of the Hermitage. The Hermitage Museum is the largest art gallery in Russia and is among the largest and most respected art museums in the world.

Никольский морской собор (The Naval Cathedral of Saint Nicholas)
Made by foje64
The Naval Cathedral of Saint Nicholas (locally known as the Sailors Cathedral) and the garden in front of it are located in a bend of Canal Griboedova in a picturesque part of Saint Petersburg, Russia. The area was originally settled by sailors in the time of Peter the Great, and the first, wooden chapel was built for them which bore the name of St. Nicholas the Miracle-Worker. As the area grew along with the new capital, Grand Duchess Elizabeth issued a decree to build a stone church for the regiments living here. Construction of the new stone church began in 1753, and the main altar in the current cathedral was consecrated in 1760 in the presence of Grand Duchess Elizabeth. The cathedral actually consists of two churches, an upper church and a lower church. The church officially became a naval cathedral in July 1762 by order of Catherine the Great. Today, it is one of the best examples of Baroque architecture in Saint Petersburg. The walls of the cathedral are decorated with scenes from the history of the Russian Navy.

Медный всадник Ночью (The Bronze Horseman at Night)
Made by foje64
The Bronze Horseman, an impressive monument to the founder of St Petersburg, Peter the Great, stands on the (formerly the Decembrists Square), in Saint Petersburg, Russia. The monument was built by order of the Empress Catherine the Great as a tribute to her famous predecessor on the Russian throne, Peter the Great. Being a German princess by birth, she was eager to establish a line of continuity with the earlier Russian monarchs. For that reason an inscription on the monument reads in Latin and Russian: Petro Primo Catharina Secunda - To Peter the First from Catherine the Second. This equestrian statue of Peter the Great, created by the famous French sculptor Etienne Maurice Falconet, depicts the most prominent reformer of the Russia state as a Roman hero. The pedestal is made of a single piece of red granite moulded into the shape of a cliff. From the top of this cliff Peter gallantly leads Russia forward, while his horse steps on a snake, which represents the enemies of Peter and his reforms.

Исаакиевский собор (Saint Isaac's Cathedral)
Made by foje64
The reflection of Saint Isaac’s Cathedral on a rainy day in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Saint Isaac's Cathedral was originally the city's main church and the largest cathedral in Russia. It was built between 1818 and 1858, by the French-born architect Auguste Montferrand, to be one of the most impressive landmarks of the Russian Imperial capital. The cathedral, which can accommodate 14,000 worshipers, now serves as a museum and services are held only on significant ecclesiastical holidays. The present cathedral is the fourth version built, the first was a wooden church commissioned by Peter the Great in 1710. Peter named it after a Byzantine monk Saint Isaac of Dalmatia, as he was born on Saint Isaac's feast day according to the Orthodox calendar. It was replaced with a new church built in 1717-1727. In 1768 Catherine the Great commissioned a new church on the same site in honour of her hero Peter the Great. HDR from three exposures, -2, 0 +2, Canon EOS 500D, EF-S10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM.

St.-Petersburg. Vitebsky Railway Station.
Made by Oleg Mirabo
VITEBSKY RAILWAY STATION (formerly St. Petersburg, Tsarskoselsky, Moskovsko-Vindavo-Rybinsky Line, and Detskoselsky Railway Station) (52 Zagorodny Ave). The wooden building of Tsarskoselskaya Railway Station was constructed in August-September 1837 by architect K.A. Ton, near the crossing of Zagorodny Avenue and Vvedensky Canal. The first Russian train left the station on October 30,1837. In 1849-51 a stone railway station building was built in its place by architect Ton, in the 1870s it was reconstructed, and in the early 20th century the building was taken apart). The present day the two-storeyed building of Vitebsky Railway Station was constructed in 1901-04 by architects S.A. Brzhozovsky and S.I. Minash in early Art Nouveau style with a dome, a horologium, large Romanesque windows and decorative bas-reliefs on the pediment. One of the station’s halls is decorated with wall paintings by artists N.S. Samokish and E.P. Samokish-Sudkovskaya, which show the history of Tsarskoselskaya Railway Station. In 1987, a model of the train with Provorny locomotive, which made the first railway trip in Russia from St. Petersburg to Tsarskoe Selo in 1837, was installed in a specially built glass pavilion on one of Vitebsky Railway Station platforms. Vitebsky Railway Station serves destinations in the Russian south. Pushkinskaya metro station is located near Vitebsky Railway Station.
Kunstkammer in der Nacht
Made by dorena-wm
Die Kunstkammer in St. Petersburg war das erste Museum in Russland. Sie wurde durch Ukas im Jahre 1704 von Zar Peter dem Großen am Ufer der Newa gegenüber dem Winterpalast in Sankt Petersburg begründet, von dem deutschen Architekten Georg Johann Mattarnovi erbaut und im Jahre 1724 eröffnet. Das Museum diente dazu, „natürliche und menschliche Kuriositäten und Absonderlichkeiten“ aufzubewahren. Peter der Große wollte seiner Bevölkerung die Wissenschaft näher bringen, deswegen war der Eintritt nicht nur umsonst, sondern wer das Museum besucht hatte erhielt eine Tasse Kaffee offeriert. Die Bestände zählen zu den vollständigsten anthropologischen und völkerkundlichen Sammlungen der Welt. The Chamber of Art in St. Petersburg was the first museum in Russia. It was founded in 1704 by decree of Tsar Peter the Great on the banks of the Neva opposite the Winter Palace in Saint Petersburg, built by the German architect Johann Georg Mattarnovi and opened in 1724. The museum was intended to keep natural and human curiosities and oddities”. Peter the Great wanted to bring its people closer to science, so the entrance was not only vain, but who had visited the museum was offered a cup of coffee. The stocks are among the most comprehensive anthropological and ethnological collections in the world.

Крейсер Аврора 1-го ранга Балтийского флота, известный своей ролью в Октябрьском вооружённом восстании в Петрограде. The Avrora is a Russian cruiser, currently preserved as a museum ship in St. Petersburg. She was one of three Pallada-class cruisers, built in St. Petersburg for a service in the Far East. All the ships of this class served during the Russo-Japanese War (1904 - 1905). In 1906 the Avrora returned to the Baltic and became a cadet training ship. During the First World War the ship operated in the Baltic Sea. At the end of 1916, the ship was moved to Saint Petersburg for a major repair. The city was brimming with revolutionary ferment and part of her crew joined the 1917 February Revolution. A revolutionary committee was created on the ship (Aleksandr Belyshev was elected its captain). Most of the crew joined the Bolsheviks, who were preparing for a Communist revolution. On 25 October 1917, the refusal of an order for the Avrora to take to sea sparked the October Revolution. A blank shot from her forecastle gun signalled the start of the assault on the Winter Palace, which was to be the last episode of the October Revolution. Avrora's crew actually took part in the attack.
Дом компании Зингер (The Singer House)
Made by foje64
This is the Singer House (Дом компании Зингер), also known as the House of Books (Дом книги), located on Nevsky Prospekt, Saint Petersburg, Russia. The building was designed by architect Pavel Suzor for the Russian branch of the Singer Sewing Machine Company. Initially, the management of the Singer Company had ambitions to construct a skyscraper, similar to the Singer Building - company headquarters being built at that time in New York. However, the building code of Saint Petersburg centre did not allow structures taller than 23,5 meters (the height of the Winter Palace). After the October revolution, the building was given to the Petrograd State Publishing House in 1919. It quickly became the city largest book store and earned the nickname of House of Books.

Lions Bridge, St. Petersburg, Russia
Made by Thad Roan - Bridgepix
When it opened in July 1826, Lions Bridge was an innovation, because its support was hidden in the metal bodies of the four white cast-iron lions which stand in majestic pairs at each end of the bridge. The bridge spans Griboedov Canal at one of the many bends on its journey through the heart of the city. Lions Bridge was designed by the architect G. Tretter, one of the most prominent advocates of the early construction of chain bridges in the city. The lions were sculpted by P. Sokolov, who also created the sphinxes on the Egyptian Bridge and the griffins on Bank Bridge. The shining gold and gray chains linking the lions at each end of the bridge make a powerful artistic impression, while the bridge's elaborate gray railings are a veritable net of continuous crisscrossing rectangular bars, adorned by glimmering bronze rosettes. The elaborate railing style became particularly popular in St. Petersburg and was used as a model for new bridges. The bridge was reconstructed in the middle of the 20th century, after years of deterioration, and regained its former splendor. Its elaborate railings, floor lamps and lanterns were all restored.

Благовещенская церковь на Васильевском острове Санкт-Петербурга. Blagoveshchenskaya* church on Vasilievsky Island, St Petersburg. The first wooden church in the northern part of Vasilevsky island, was built in 1741 - 1742 under supervision of Guseppe Trezini. In 1750 it was decided to replace the wooden church with a two-storey church in stone. However, the construction of this new stone-church went on very slowly and the church was not consecrated until the 15th September of 1762. In 1780 a four-storey belltower was added. In 1936 the church was closed and was used as a warehouse. After the fall of the Soviet-union the church was again opened for the believers and has since then it has also undergone renovation. * I can not translate this from Russian to English.

St. Petersburg, Russia. This is the Church of the Saviour on the Spilt Blood - the only onion-topped church in Saint Petersburg. (More formally known as the Church of the Resurrection of Christ.) It was used to store potatoes during the Soviet period. Didn't anyone tell them that it would be more appropriate to store onions there? The Soviets also had a plan to blow it up, such was the irritation it caused to their ban on religion, but due to its canal-side location engineers advised against it. The inside is covered in mosaics - about 7,000 square metres, give or take. The main dome has an image of Jesus with three-foot wide eyes. A shell was dropped through the roof during the war and went straight through Jesus's shoulder. Miraculously, it didn't explode, and Mr. Christ was patched up perfectly. Looks good .
