Zoom on Urban Heritage | Outstanding Universal Value of Saint Petersburg

Saint Petersburg, Russia

The OWHC is proud to present for the first time in 2019, a new video filmed as part of the Zoom on Urban Heritage program. Discover the reasons why the site “Historic Centre of Saint Petersburg and Related Groups of Monuments” has been recognized for its Outstanding Universal Value.

“The unique historical landscape of our city consists of harmonious combination of different spaces and objects. It is straight avenues, small streets, historical buildings, architectural ensembles, water spaces and city historical blocks. If you want to understand all the aspects of our city you have to look on it with eyes of pedestrians, cyclists, drivers, sailors and even from a bird’s eye view. And then you will understand the outstanding universal value of our city and love it”.
