ADFAS: The Tale of Two Cities: Moscow and St Petersburg
The story of Russia is inextricably linked to two contrasting cities – Moscow and St Petersburg. The Russian capital, Moscow is the historic seat of power with its impressive and world-famous landmarks like St Basil’s, the Kremlin and Red Square. Saint Petersburg was founded by Peter the Great as an artfully planned statement city of style and sophistication and as a doorway to the West. This lecture considers the fascinating cultural history of these two great cities and most importantly their incredible legacy of art and architecture.
