Санкт Петербург — Питер — Ленинград — Санкт Петербург

St. Petersburg was founded in 1703, when Peter the Great seized control of the land surrounding the Neva during a protracted war with Sweden. A simple log cabin – the city’s first living quarters – was constructed on the city’s fortress (Peter and Paul Fortress) shortly after this victory. Despite the settlement’s unpromising location – a swamp – and unforgiving climate, Peter pursued his dream of a northern capital.

In a typically Russian paradox, the city that would later become a symbol of cosmopolitan, enlightened Europe was founded in the cruellest of conditions. Its builders, primarily peasants and soliders, were driven hard; many died as a result of Peter’s manic work schedule. Even the city’s first white-collar workers were ordered there, and they weren’t very happy about it, either.

In 1712 St. Petersburg became the capital and people started coming on their own account. From around 1741, the beginning of Empress Elizabeth’s reign, Peter’s swamp was simply the place to be. The courts of the empresses were graced by the best European artistic, literary and musical talent, and foreign architects, mainly Italian, built fantastic palaces and awe-inspiring churches. St. Petersburg, envisaged by Peter as Russia’s ‘Window to the West’, finally fulfilled its earlier promise.

I didn’t care for this song (or singer, to tell the truth), but I found and added another song she sings - hope you like it.
It’s kind of embarrassing to have her next to DDT... what do you think? I had the same feeling when I added Dima Bulan, but lots of people (women?) like him.

Agh! How did I forget it? I love it, but I added the version she sings with Metodie Bujor
Hope you like it.

Петроград куда-то делся в названии

Название очень смутило, т.к. было использовано 2 официальных названия города и 1 неофициальное, но решаешь с названием, конечно, ты.
"После песен о «любимом» сталине, гитлере, Ленине, ты правда не ожидаешь, что я буду воспевать революционные гимны основанные на обмане тех идеалистов, кто сражались за власть советов?" - что ты имеешь в виду и как это связано с моим комментарием?
