Botero visits the Architectural Relics of the past in San Petersburg and Moscu

After 100 years of mystery, fear and cold war, a former police state is now open to the American public. I am referring to Russia with all the architectural jewels of the Zars and Emperors from the time of Peter and Catherine, the Great. The new Russia is now a capitalist country, very Americanized, and all the jewels of the past have been reconstructed and/or renovated.

San Petersburg, in particular, is a museum in itself with more than 500 palaces and churches. The roman and greek architecture that still influences our construction design in the northeast and south in our country has a new dimension when influenced by the east orthodox culture. Botero took some pictures for our clients.
