5.0 étoiles sur 5This is a wonderful book.25 février 1999

This is a beautiful book. The photographs are outstanding, and occasional old prints showing scenes as they appeared centuries ago lend welcome perspective. The well-written text presumes some knowledge of Russian history but can be enjoyed by anyone interested in this amazing city. Bravo!

5.0 étoiles sur 5St. Petersburg: Architecture of the Tsars28 août 2001
Par Daniel Scott Cooter - Publié sur Amazon.com
One of the most beautiful books I've ever come across, St. Petersburg:Architecture of the Tsars is a must for those interested in Imperial Russian history, architecture, or both. The lavish book aptly illustrates the architecture of the former capital of the tsars, from the exuberant Russian Baroque of Peter the Great, to the neoclassicism of Catherine the Great, to the Art Nouveau of Nicholas II. With chapters arranged in chronological order, the book illustrates the development of the city through the reigns of each tsar/tsaritsa, and includes seperate chapters on Pavlovsk, Tsarskoe Selo, and Peterhof. The book is well worth the price.

This can be an expensive book if you're not buying it used, but it's absolutely worth it. The beautiful pictures are excellent at presenting St. Petersburg's amazing architectural wonders. The text is well-written, and even if you don't have a great deal of knowledge of Russian history, you'll still be able to follow along without any trouble. A gem - read and enjoy!

Wonderful pictures and easy to read. I think that this book is a must- have for anyone with more than a passing interest in architecture. I wish they would write volume no. 2!

5.0 étoiles sur 5IMPERIAL RUSSIA30 septembre 2006
Par Shannon Deason - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is a gorgeous book on a beautiful city. My father would have loved this book, he had an interest in all things Russian, he and my mother toured St. Petersburg and loved it. The images in this book are crisp and text highly informative. St. Petersburg has a wealth of beautiful Imperial Buildings and they are shown at their best in this wonderful book. From Peter the Great's Peterhof to the Hermitage, to Catherine the Great's Tsarkoe Selo, the best of Imperial Russian architecture is on display. If you have any interst in Imperial Russian architecture or just enjoy fine books, then i cannot imagine you being disappointed. Highly recommended.
