Yes, because of a number or rivers and canals, 42 islands and 300 bridges

It is good to see it from water, and my previous and next posts are views from water

I want to saluted Russian imperial capital.
Съ нами Богъ!

I have a question regarding Kazan cathedral.
If I know this cathedral is dedicated to the Russian victory over Napoleon and his allies.
After the victory in the cathedral brought a lot of trophies won by the Russian army across Europe.
So Is that in the cathedral or moved after the Revolution?

Поздрав из Србије-Greetings from Serbia.

I don't know about a present day, but after the Revolution French army banners and keys from cities and fortresses were not removed, as I've seen em there in late 1990s
