Photographer's Note

This is one of most famous views of Saint Petersburg. This area was conquered by Peter, the Great, in a war against Sweden. He wanted a gateway to the sea and built a fort, in 1703, in one of the islets in the mouth of Neva River, a very swampy area.
Here we can see the Fort of Saint Peter & Saint Paul. In foreground we can see Neva river. In the ramparts you can notice a gate, it was in that point that the prisoners were sent to death or to Siberia during czars times. In the center of the fort there are many interesting buildings and small museums, you can see the shapes of the cathedral with a very long golden needle with an angel in the top. I will show you the angel some days ahead.
That silver building at side of the tower is the highest building in Europe.

Essa uma das vistas mais conhecidas de S緌 Petersburgo. Essa regi緌 foi conquistada por Pedro, o Grande durante uma guerra contra os suecos. O czar decidiu ent緌 erguer um forte numa ilhota dessa regi緌 pantanosa e dar Rssia um porto mar癃imo.
Vemos aqui o Forte de S緌 Pedro e S緌 Paulo, erguido em 1703. No primeiro plano temos o Rio Neva. Nas muralhas do forte voc瘰 poder緌 ver um portal, era ali que os traidores do imp廨io eram mandados para a morte ou para a Sib廨ia nos temps dos czares. No centro do forte existem v嫫ias constru踥es interessantes e pequenos museus. Vemos as formas da catedral se sobressaindo, com sua torre e uma agulha dourada muito alta com um anjo no topo, algo que vou mostrar de perto depois.
Aquele edif獳io prateado que vemos ao lado da torre o mais alto edif獳io da Europa.
