Saint-Petersburg is a city of architectural wonder. Its streets, squares, palaces, cathedrals and bridges were all created by some of historys greatest architects. These men -- Bartolomeo Rastrelli, Domenico Trezzini, Leonty Benua and Giacomo Quarenghi -- were foreigners to the land, but they understood the soul of Russia and were able to translate its beauty into stone. Russia, in return, gave them the friendship of its artists, composers and poets as well as love of the gorgeous Russian women who became their muses and caring wives.
