Love these night shots! But having said that, St. Petersburg looks great day or night! This city is a real dream to photograph.

similarity is that they all have some foreign flags on buildings (possibly consulates or trade missions).
Beautiful photos anyway, thanks for the thread

Yes, some of consulates I could find on the net. "Guess" was not a question, rather "hey, pay attention it is not just a set of strange buildings"
