FROM SAINT PETERSBURG TO TAGANROG – Author’s Travel in Russia

Decision to visit Russia http://www.visitrussia.org.uk/ strenghtens the beauty of paintings by Mikhail Vrubel and listening to a musical selection by Vladimir Vysotsky or reading a novel by Anton Čechov and poetic selection of Marina Tsvetaeva, because valorizing the language (and the culture) means to enhance human creativity in all its expressive shades, as the completion of the creative horizon, which defines the culture of the country.

Our trip starts in St. Petersburg, http://www.saint-petersburg.com/ a city of majestic architecture, a place of artistic culture, but also a treasure chest of memories of great historical significance. Exploring the Hermitage Art collections https://www.hermitagemuseum.org/wps/portal/hermitage/?lng=en and the Russian Museum http://en.rusmuseum.ru/ you will be able to admire many art masterpieces of MIKHAIL VRUBEL. Shopping in St. Petersburg? Two large shopping centers (Passazh and DTL) offer everything, but nothing stimulating. To buy paintings and watercolors, you can go to the Museum of Decorative Art, where school students sell the fruits of their creativity. The basement of the Passazh department store (Nevsky Prospect) is a joy to gourmets, because you can taste (or buy) the Russian salads of their production. Matriyoshke, checkers and dolls are waiting for you at the Souvenir Market.

In St. Petersburg, you can go to the Chekhov Restaurant (Petropavlovskaya No. 4,), http://en.restaurant-chekhov.ru/ where you can wrap yourself in a rustic 19th-century atmosphere, knowing the gastronomic value of old Russian 21st century recipes. Order the Kiev chicken, or the white fish in the oven, while the sweet pudding perfume floats in the air. A white piano. An ancient gramophone and oak furniture complement the warmth of this warm country house. In the Tretyakov Gallery https://www.tretyakovgallery.ru/en/ you can admire one of the masterpieces of Mikhail Vrubel, “The demon sitting in the garden”, created in 1890.
