Russia in Photography

We present photographs by Victor Potoskuev capturing St. Petersburg and its suburbs.

St. Petersburg was founded by Peter the Great in 1703 and was the capital of the Russian Empire from 1712 to 1918. The city and its suburbs  - Pavlovsk, Tsarskoye Selo, Peterhof - are known for their 18th and 19th century architectural ensembles.
