To succeed in learning Russian you should fall in love with Russia. And it's easy because Russia has so much to offer! Russian music: Chaikovsky, Rakhmaninov, Prokofyev, Shostakovich; Russian literature: Pushkin,Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, Chekhov, Pasternak; Russian opera Shalyapin, Khvorostovsky, Vishnyevskaya; Russian ballet Pavlova, Plisetskaya, Baryshnikov, Noureyev, Russian theater: Stanislavsky; (to mention just a few names!) have become part of the world's history of arts.
Perhaps the city which embodies most the spirit of creativity, strive for harmony and perfectionin the country is Saint Petersburg. This is the only city which didn't grow and develop through centuries to become the capital like other world capitals. It was intended to be the capital city so the palaces and the surrounding houses were arranged in ensembles to reveal the splendor and wealth of the Russian Empire of the 18-th-19-th centuries. The fascinating palaces and numerous bridges, spacious squares and wide straight streets, monumental sculpture and lacy iron grills make St. Petersburg one of the most elegant cities in Europe. The pearl necklace of the summer residences of the Russian tsars in the suburbs of the city - Peterhof, Tsarskoye Selo, Pavlovsk, Gatchina, Lomonosov, Strelna - emphasize its inimitable beauty and historical significance.
