540 RU - Historic Centre of Saint Petersburg and Related Groups of Monuments (1990)

Brief Description

"The 'Venice of the North', with its numerous canals and more than 400 bridges, is the result of a vast urban project begun in 1703 under Peter the Great. Later known as Leningrad (in the former USSR), the city is closely associated with the October Revolution. Its architectural heritage reconciles the very different Baroque and pure neoclassical styles, as can be seen in the Admiralty, the Winter Palace, the Marble Palace and the Hermitage."

" 被称为“北方威尼斯”的圣彼得堡,以其无数的河道和400多座桥梁而闻名于世,这是在彼得大帝统治下于1703年开始实施的宏大城市规划的一个重要成果。 此地后改名为列宁格勒(位于前苏联),而 且与十月革命密切相关。它的建筑遗产与截然不同的巴洛克式建筑风格和纯古典式建筑风格极其和谐,我们可在海军部、冬宫、大理石宫以及爱尔米塔什博物馆看到 这些。"
