In this review, you can find unpopular sights of

Saint Petersburg

, fragments of interesting buildings and unusual monuments. We started our walk from Pravdy Street.
Here's the Institute of Film and Television. The building was built as a parish school.

Church of St. John the Baptist

, Church of the Holy Transfiguration of the Lord and the Church of the aforementioned Alexander Nevsky.

8saint-petersburg-in-march.jpgIt's a weird sculpture...
9saint-petersburg-in-march.jpgThis building has a beautiful facade. Behind this house, there is a patio, decorated by motives of a fairy tale "The Wizard of Oz." There's a road paved with yellow brick, figures of characters: the Scarecrow, Tin Man, Lion, Bastinda, Saber-toothed tigers, etc. But I did not know about it at that moment.
