St. Petersburg has earned the reputation of being one of the most beautiful cities in the world thanks not only to its unique palaces and churches but also to its inimitable architectural ensembles of streets, canals and squares. St. Petersburg is a city of splendid palaces and beautiful buildings, its most common architectural styles being baroque and classical, which reached their peak here on the Russian soil.
There are more than 90 museums in the city and its surroundings, including the Hermitage - one of the world's leading treasure stores of art. St. Petersburg is the home of the famous Russian classical ballet school and numerous ballet and opera theaters will be available during Symposium time.
The Symposium takes place at the time known as White Nights, when many cultural events (musical, theatrical and art show) take place here.
