Vasilyevsky Island is really very interesting and even an extraordinary place. Though you step on this land for the first time, you will never be able to get lost: the linear layout is impeccable, and this ingenious simplicity can not but produce an admiration. It is full of myths and mysteries like no other area of the northern capital. It is often called the "island of unsolved mysteries," into which tourists, who come here in great numbers from Russia and abroad, are trying to peek.
The beauty, uniqueness and power of attraction of Vasilyevsky Island is reflected in many works. It is enough just to recall the immortal lines of Joseph Brodsky: "I do not want to choose either a country or a churchyard. I will come to Vasilyevsky Island to die."
