St Petersburg, Architectural Opulence

Photographs by Dr Ahmad K Khalil

The Hermitage is one of the great museums of the world, which I had not seen yet. That is why after an excellent scientific meeting at the Fyodorov Eye Institute in Moscow, to which I was invited to speak by Prof Boris Malyugin; chief of the department of cataract and impplant surgery there, I decided to fly to the city of St Petersburg (leningrad) home to the infamous museum. What happened is that my one and half day there were a Monday when the museum is usually closed, and in the following day, long cues did not help me to make it in either!

BUT, I was very much rewarded by a most beautiful city!!! Among great cities in the world, St Petersburg stands out very imminently. While there, I could easily say that it is the most beautiful city I have visited, and even now, many months after that visit, I keep most of the same opinion; maybe because of the very homogenous artistic architecture, maybe because of the many canals and rivers flowing, maybe because of the extensive renovations and the very bright elegant appearance of the buildings and their full lights up at night , maybe because of the clear blue sky which prevailed in one day and the sudden snowfall at that same night marking the beginning of Russian winter, and letting snow cover everythng in few hours time, maybe because of the very confortable feeling coming to the soull when walking in the parks intermingled with the widely spaced architecture like that at the Admiralty and the perfect Palace square. Maybe I did not have much chance to experience other aspects of the city, but architecture, urban design, and watching people activities from outside did leave an impression. But isn't that the purpose of architecture and all arts, to affect the human soul positively.

I leave you now with some of the pictures,
