The city is pretty young comparing to the majority of European cities. It is only a bit more than 300 years old, but it has its own character and a certain face with long straight prospects and architectural ensembles of the 18th-19th centuries, surrounded by gorgeous suburban towns – summer residences of Russian Tsars and Emperors.
