Saint Petersburg at Night

What mysteries lie within?

Postcard Scavenger HuntWhen Natalia in Saint Petersburg, Russia proposed a postcard swap some weeks ago, I could hardly resist.  In exchange for a handful of postcards promoting social causes, she sent me several beautiful views of her city at night.  Serendipitously, these cards fit in very nicely with Postcardy’s Postcard Scavenger Hunt for July: Night/Lights.

The backs of these cards have large, bold titles in Russian and English, with smaller titles in German, French, Spanish, and Italian.  Then the photo and publisher credits are listed in English and Russian, along with the publisher’s logo.  As you might imagine, and like many Russian cards (and Soviet cards before them), this leaves very little room for any message you might want to send along with the card.

Without further ado, please enjoy these views of Saint Petersburg at night.

    I am real late getting out and about to everyone’s blog this week. I’ve been out of town and have had little time to play. But I’m glad I stopped by today. These are lovely postcards. :-)

    I hope you and yours had a beautiful weekend.
