SEE: Wikipedia

Saint Petersburg was founded by Tsar Peter the Great in 1703, and it served as the Imperial Capital of Russia from 1713–1728 and 1732–1918, when the capital was moved to Moscow.

In 1914 the name of the city was changed from Saint Petersburg to Petrograd, in 1924 to Leningrad, and in 1991, back to Saint Petersburg. The Russians routinely call it "Petersburg," omitting the "Saint," and colloquially just "Piter."

It is known as the cultural capital of Russia, with great museums, including the Hermitage, the Russian Museum, as well as the Petersburg School of Ballet.
