Krasnoyarsk City. The summer in the Republic of Yakutia was very hot for me, (the said your are Colombian, you are used to that), believe me it was very hot. It was hot and it was weird, because Yakutsk is the coldest city in the world, with and average of -55^c on winter, but this summer was around +40c; that's why this city break all the extremes, and have many many Guinness Records. So I decided to go away from this extreme hot, and the interested thing here in Russia is that Russia is huge, so there were many options, but I also wanted to be comfortable, and go to a place which my program wouldn’t object to (Rotary International). So I received an invitation from one very good friend (also from Rotary) who lives ... read more

During my visit to Saint Peterburg, i went to one of the Suburban Collars around the city, named Peterhof, This place was the favorite residence for Peter I (The Great), that's why this is called Peterhof! Peterhof its a great building complex and parks from XVIII-XIX centuries, adorned by more than 100 sculptures around the gardens, with a surface bigger than a thousand hectares, there are more than thirty buildings. Peter I used to travel a lot to Kronstadt. The trip by the sea was very dangerous and uncomfortable, Catalina I, who was always with her husband, convinced him (that's what the legend say) to build a comfortable house, on the side of the gulf (Baltic sea), The idea made Peter I excited, who decided to build a very extravagant residence. He showed himself the place ... read more

This Cathedral was made by the Architects, Alfred Parland and Ignacio Malishev between 1883-1907. They used the same shapes and procedures from the Saint Basil's Temple (Moscow), which was the national symbol those times in Russia. The shape of the base of the Cathedral was imagined like the petals of a flower by the Father Ignacio, also he proposed the Name. They got a very hard objective, the place where was assassinated The Tsar Alexander II, should be part of the Cathedral. So they made a small mini temple where is the exactly point of the execution of Alexander II by the terrorist Grinevitski. Its a beautiful place and have the inscription of what exactly happened there in many languages, this mini temple was installed in 1907. When you look up inside the Cathedral, you can ... read more

In one of the City-Tours i made, i had the opportunity to stop in the Saint Isaac's Square. The First impression it gave to me, was WOW, The Horseman in the center (Nicholas I), the St Isaac's Cathedral at one side and the Mariinsky Palace in the other, made a phenomenal atmosphere. The statue of Nicholas I on the Horse its huge and completely amazing, the Square where the monument is, its called The Senate Square. The sculpture was made by Piotr Clodt between 1856-1858, and the architect was Auguste Monferrand. Around the Square can be found lots of Luxury Hotels and Government buildings Some of the interesting places you can fin around are: - The Lobanov-Rostovsky House - The Blue Bridge - The Hotel Astoria - The Hotel Angleterre - The Russian Institute of Plant ... read more

During My trip to Saint Peters-burg, on the beginning of April, i went to The Hermitage Museum. This was an absolutely Fantastic experience, everything of this place its beautiful, the richness of the History that you can experiment there is lovely. This is one of the largest and oldest Museums in the world, was founded in 1764. It started when a trader from Berlin named Gotzkowski, offered to the Russian Court a collection conformed by 225 Pictures, made by painters from Netherlands and Spain. This new collection worked as the base for Catalina II's new gallery. By order of Nicholas I between 1839-1852 the new Museum was made. The Zar hired Leo Klenze for the project, which saved the crown treasures, nowadays the Museum have more than 3 million art values. In the Hermitage you can ... read more

Views of The City's River Port. The Port works allowing the commerce and the touristic trips by the Lena River. The Lena River is the Biggest and most important River in Russia, and one of the longest Rivers in the world. It starts in the Baikal Mountains and flow into the Artic sea, its 4,400 km (2,800 mi) Long. On winter the City's temperature its around -50 ^C , that means that the Lena River can only be enjoyed in Summer (right now the temperature its around +30^c). On winter it works like a 6 lanes Highway. I love running everyday by the Port's way, its just 200ms from my house. ... read more

This was the celebration of the "Victory Day" here in the coldest citiy of the world, Yakutsk , in the republic of SAJA-YAKUTIA in the Russian Far East. Actually i enjoyed a lot this day, was a fantastic Parade, with a lot of people, and the integration of the Russian and Yakutian Cultures, it was simply AMAZING. The parade took place in the City's Victory Square with a small Military demonstration, Victory Music, and Veterans of the WWII everywhere.
