317 years since the founding
of St. Petersburg will be celebrated on May 27, 2020

According to legend, exactly 317 years ago Peter the great ordered to build a city in the Neva Delta. Many took his idea with hostility and did not believe that it was possible to build a city on the marshy lands near the Gulf of Finland. But the Emperor proved the opposite, and for several centuries, millions of people from all over the world admire St. Petersburg.
By the end of may, fountains are already working in St. Petersburg, festive decorations are visible everywhere, and the weather is getting better every day. Even just walking the streets these days is a pleasure. But it is better not to be limited to a simple promenade, because there will be so many interesting things happening around!

The program of events for the day of St. Petersburg in 2020 promises to be rich. No wonder St. Petersburg is considered the Russian capital of art and culture. The picturesque architecture of this city is a work of art in itself. And now, this cultural center of Russia is 317 years old. Without any doubt, the concert at the Palace on the day of St. Petersburg will be enchanting. Here, according to the good tradition of recent years, the most popular Opera artists of the world will perform. This is a gorgeous performance with the participation of the best St. Petersburg choirs and theater groups.
