10 reasons to move to St. Petersburg
A new project in the field of e-commerce is forcing me to live in the two cities. In Peter I'm flying on business almost every week, and I like him more and more with each new trip. Over the last month I have identified 10 important advantages that make me think about moving.
The world's best parks
Yes, that's right - the best in the world. They are large, with beautiful manicured lawns, ponds and monuments. Cool, that a lot of places. You can go to the Tauride Gardens, Alexandrino, South Seaside Park, or select another option. And it is really nice place where you are unlikely to come across a company with a GOP-pivasikom.
And you can feed the ducks in the pond:
or meet squirrel :-)
When I see in the sky a riot of colors, it is immediately drawn to the camera. I can not help myself. Apparently, I am - sunset fonomanyak. In Chelyabinsk, you have about 10 minutes to make tough shots. Slightly fidgeted with the drone or fotikom all. The sun hides behind the horizon, the colors fade.
In St. Petersburg is different. The city is the north and sunsets here, "raskochegarivayutsya". You look at the sky and think: "Ohrenet, what a beauty!". Doing a series of shots, and half an hour once again take up the camera. Because the picture is so beautiful, that can turn into the most romantic callous people.
The historic center of the waterfront, palaces and ancient manors strikingly combined with colorful Soviet buildings. Peter - a logical and well-planned city. It is clear that in this age of gadgets and online maps difficult to get lost. But in the northern capital do not need them. Even if you're not there rolled, then you will always find the way.
The best airport in Russia
Pulkovo is not inferior to Sheremetyevo infrastructure, Vnukovo and Domodedovo. But it has an important advantage over the Moscow airports. This is not a passenger hub, so there is no such crazy people flows.
Here are some other notable pros air harbor St. Petersburg: Human navigation from the studio Lebedev (although in some places it is not perfect), "Starbucks" and taxi drivers are polite. Polite in what sense? Unlike capital colleagues they do not pounce on you like hounds on their prey. Over the past six trips only one driver jumped out to me across the path of the proposal: "Taxis want?".
I do not know about you, but I just feel the skin that in St. Petersburg, to do great things. The city has experienced different emotions and events: balls of emperors and noblemen duel, Bloody Sunday and the revolution, blockade, bombing and rebirth. Energy Peter powerful. It is not surprising that some of her feed and create things to the point of genius. And others do not stand up and drink too much. Just as cord bequeathed :-)
Uber Black service and Wheely
You can scatter stones at me, but I really like to travel on good cars. A matter of habit and interior comfort. At Uber Black and Wheely clear and understandable billing. And the most important thing on their machines no "shashechek". Almost like a personal driver. Only for rent.
Culture and awesome people
St. Petersburg intelligentsia - is not a myth. I am convinced that when I sit down in a taxi. Chelyabinsk drivers say about complaining about roads and power. Moscow - on the cork. St. Petersburg did not complain at all. But they may pass by the Mariinsky Theater and tell about a fresh setting, which went the other day with the family.
The town in general is very creative and Europe. In the center is full of foreigners, waiters through one know English, young people - bright. Not afraid to wear dreadlocks and look ridiculous. Peter all makes a little more cultured. A proven fact!
Shampoo bar for its located away from the usual tourist routes. St. Petersburg restaurant critics put it pathetic and bohemian but me Institution opposite seemed pretty cozy. What is it cool? Firstly, excellent wines! They help determine the girl sommelier. They all tell variations in ordinary human language. After talking with them - you do not feel like a fool, that is not the topic. The second plus - excellent cuisine. Dishes on the menu are not many, but they are copyrights, creative:
Not so much "chlenovozok" in Moscow
Petersburg lucky that no power is concentrated in the Smolny and the Kremlin. Of course, when the city Dmitry Medvedev arrives or some important minister - of the streets overlap. But "tuples with flashing lights" - the phenomenon for Peter is not mundane. Therefore, unlike in Moscow, it does not cause such a powerful negative drivers.
Direct flight to Chelyabinsk
Conveniently, it does not need to change in Moscow. However, often it is necessary to fly on old Russian aircraft company - subsidiary "Aeroflot". Beauty them dirty and shabby ...
presentiment negative comments about the skeptics harsh climate and high humidity. That's right. In November and December in St. Petersburg to live hard. The sun can not weeks peek out from behind the clouds, people suffer from depression. But I consider St. Petersburg in the context of his life. Sell all properties in Chelyabinsk and move to the northern capital for permanent residence I'm not going to. But to carry out here a long time - completely. After all, life on several cities - is absolutely normal for the history of our turbulent times.
