May 23, 2003: St. Petersburg Celebrates 300th Anniversary


St. Petersburg’s transformation from barren marshland into a center of Russian political, academic and cultural life began on May 27, 1703, when Czar Peter I founded the city as a grand capital for his expanding empire. This year marks the 300th anniversary of the city’s founding, and Golden Cockerel is honoring the event with our "White Nights of St. Petersburg" matryoshka.

Landmarks of this “Venice of the North” -- The Church of Our Saviour on the Spilled Blood, St. Isaac's Cathedral, The Stock Exchange and Rostral Columns, The Admiralty, and The Peter and Paul Cathedral/Fortress – decorate this specially created nesting doll. But you don’t have to travel to Pitr for a souvenir of this famed city’s tercentenary -- Order now to reserve your very own “White Nights…” nesting doll, to be delivered in late June.
