ST. PETERSBURG HAS A RICH SELECTION of traditional
cultural offerings that allows you to spend day after
day at museums, galleries, and palaces and evenings
at ballets, operas and concerts at night, as if this
is the kind of thing that rubs your tater.
Manifestations of “popular” culture – film, jazz,
rock, naked people wrapped in plastic throwing
hamsters at each other – are fewer but they’re here,
and given the newfound wealth of the younger
generation it would be safe to assume that more and
more will appear.
