Olga Suvorova In Her Own Words
"I was born in Leningrad in 1966, since when its historical name has returned to my city: St. Petersburg. The city was founded in 1703 by Tsar Peter I and its site was not chosen very well - it was almost a swamp; but despite this it is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It is called the Northern Venice because of the abundance of bridges and canals. Unfortunately, the climate here is harsh - a long winter and a short northern summer. The city is located in the latitude of Alaska and Greenland. In return, there are polar nights that last from May 12 to July 31 in which the whole day is light and darkness never settles. At this time you lose sleep and want to walk around the city instead, looking at the bridges being split for the ships to pass. I love my city and its royal architecture, despite the ever-rainy weather and frequent flooding. The bridges, more than 800 of them, are individual and each of them is a masterpiece."
