Forget your hopes

Graffiti-portraits by the HoodGraff team can be seen all over the city. I’ll give you only one hint. The portrait of Sergey Bodrov is situated near the metro station Alexander Nevsky’s Square.

If you want to really understand a city, you should get to know it from within. Spend more time wandering around without a guide. Become discoverers. Take notes and photos, and share your thoughts and experiences with your friends. And don’t forget to visit The Hermitage and Saint Isaac’s Cathedral. From the cathedral you can take in a wonderful view of the city.
