The city is alive. Every morning as you rush to work, you say hi to the caryatid on the building across the street, you know what kind of sausage scraps the battered stray cat who lives in your attic prefers, you hear every note in the song of your building’s rain spout. You can communicate not only with people, animals or birds: you arrange a date with a museum, or a bridge, a statue, a building. This is what makes St. Petersburg unique (or we should say what makes special every place you approach with love). But in this city this kind of magic takes just a second to spring to life and a lifetime to disappear, since for the past 300 years so many incredible people lived, had their coffee and created art here.
