Saint Petersburg: Past and Present

Бренд:

Богато иллюстрированное подарочное издание большого формата с шелковым ляссе. . Книга упакована в оригинальный подарочный футляр. . Two world wars and one civil war, the genocide of the . Russian populace and also, incidentally, the modern scientific and technical revolution, inevitably left their mark of the mentality of . St . Petersburgs inhabitants, but had little affect on the citys appearance. . Many of its secret corners remained completely untouched, as is demonstrated by . Karl . Bullas pictures. . Although . St . Petersburg lost its status as capital just as the empire of which it was the centre became a thing of the past, it managed to retain its inner dignity, the unique originality of its way of life and culture. . St . Petersburg is as subject to the vagaries of time as anything else, but there is an aspect that brings it close to eternity - everything in it exudes past glories and that special magnetism continues t. о draw people to it. . Like any other city, though, . St . Petersburg has not only acquired, but also lost houses, churches and gardens. . Old buildings have gone to ruin; new ones have appeared in their places. . Eighteenth-century people would not have recognized the nineteenth-century streets; the next generation, too, would have been greatly surprised when following familiar routes, and so on. . Today, when . St . Petersburgs urban landscape is undergoing a fresh wave of transformations, images from the early twentieth century are particularly valuable. . It is fascinating to recognize familiar features in old pictures of the city, to learn about peoples daily life and to view the carriages, horse-trams and early motor cars. . The past reveals itself to us - that river of time that we can never re-enter, but cannot cease to wonder at. . Вступительная статья . Валентина . Эльбека.
