At the head of the Gulf of Finland in the Baltic Sea, on the Neva River, sits the second largest city in Russia, Saint Petersburg. Behind only Moscow in size, Saint Petersburg had a population of five million residents in 2012. The city was originally founded in 1703 by Tsar Peter the Great and was soon after named the capital of imperial Russia, the position it held until 1917 when the capital was moved to Moscow. Peter the Great originally founded Saint Petersburg in order to build a major port city to become a gateway for trade and culture. The city continues to be a premier financial and industrial center in Russia with a wide range of economic sectors including metallurgy, pharmaceuticals, oil and gas, aerospace, textiles, and heavy machinery, to name a few. Though possibly the cities most important sectors are those of shipping, ship building, and the services which support them. Saint Petersburg has three separate cargo ports, aside from its growing passenger port. The city has a rich cultural history of grand architectural projects and thousands of sites to see including museums, theaters, monuments, and structures. One of the city’s, and the world’s most famous museums is The State Hermitage Museum, which is the second largest art and culture museums in the world. The museum is home to more than three million individual items, including the largest collection of paintings in the world, spread across a complex of six buildings. The city’s center, with roughly four thousand individual monuments of history, culture, and architecture, was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1991.
Saint Petersburg was founded as a city for trade but soon became the capital of a vast empire and a major center for industry and commerce. Today the city remains an important center for culture, trade, industry, and finance, and has become home to and destination for millions. The city has a massive public transportation system consisting of trams, trolleys, buses, and routed taxis known and marshrutkas, to move its millions of citizens, tourists, and tons cargo. The city’s buses alone carry an estimated three million passengers per day. Add to this the ongoing infrastructure improvements and various construction projects and one has a recipe for traffic jams and travel concerns, made worse during winter.
