About St. Petersburg, Russia
Built by Czar Peter the Great in 1703, St. Petersburg sits on the Baltic Sea and is known throughout the world for producing significant works of art, dance, music, and literature. The city is actually built on hundreds of islands and linked by a network of canals and arched bridges with embankments reminiscent of Paris. The focal point of the city is the impressive Admiralty Building, where the three main avenues of the city converge.
TEFL trainees in St. Petersburg will find plenty of culture, art, and history in the Hermitage Museum, one of the oldest and largest museums in the world. You can also enjoy the numerous parks and gardens throughout the city and a shopping trip down Nevsky Prospekt, the city's main thoroughfare, will make you feel like a local! No visit to Russia is complete without a night at the ballet and the famous Mariinsky Ballet in St. Petersburg has produced such world-renowned dancers as Mikhail Baryshnikov and Anna Pavlova.
