Saint Petersburg is not only about a pompous European architecture and prim, but merry Petersburgers. It is also a beach resort. Sounds weird? And what in Russia is not weird?

The resort area stretched a narrow strip along the shore of the Gulf of Finland. Here are the best sandy beaches, wide and beautiful, and the smell of the sea is mixed with the scent of pine trees. In the resort villages – Sestroretsk, Repino, Komarovo, Zelenogorsk – there are popular sanatoria, country hotels and restaurants. Photos by: Anton Putyatin.
