So, I got an idea to write a little about my favorite city in whole world, yeah it's Saint-Petersburg. My hometown ✨
In Russia people say that Moscow is for work and Saint-Petersburg is for love. It's true anyway🙌🏻
6 million people are living in St.Petersburg.
There are nearly 600 bridges in Saint-Petersburg, and 22 of them are drawbridges.
It's very romantic thing in summer, because if you have a date with a girl on the other side of SP from her place, you can say like "that's a shame, but bridges have already raised, but you can stay with me at my place". She'll have no choice🙈😋
Saint-Petersburg is famous by its white nights, which are in the peak during May, June and practically whole July. It’s the time when the day is very long and the sun shines till the midnight and then rises at 3-4 at night, so the nights are not dark. So we have fun all day all night 💥👯
There are culinary specialties that you can find only in Saint Petersburg – Pyshki (Russian donuts) and Korushka (special sort of fish). You may taste pyshki on Bolshaya Konyushennaya street in the original place since 1958, known among all citizens and there is a huge line for these sweet donuts during the whole day! 🍩☕️
Saint Petersburg has its own special vocabulary, with special words like paradnaya (entrance). You may notice the original citizens of Saint Petersburg by these words.
Saint Petersburg metro is one of the deepest subways in the world: some stations are 70-80 meters deep and go under the water. Amazing! But not for me and original citizens 🙈
Ridiculous and funny stereotypes for Foreigners:
1. We love to drink vodka every day for breakfast, lunch, dinner instead of water...
I've tried to drink vodka only three times for whole life, and it was a cocktail Vodka+Red bull. And my family don't have vodka in the fridge. Come on!
2. We have our own version of Winnie the Pooh...
Yep, this is entirely true and he’s better than yours.
3. Everyone is in the Russian Mob...
Haha, it would be good, but still most of the people have a normal job.
4. Russian people usually have bears in their houses as a pet...
Yes, this fact is true. After a long day I really like to spend my evening with cute bear sitting next to me and bottle of vodka of course. Haha. If I said like that, would you really believe me?
You can ask me in comments about other stereotypes which you have about Russia 😉
