The entire year of 2003 will be extra-special because of the 300th anniversary of the founding of the city. It's a leitmotif that is apparent when one turns any street corner in St pete nowadays. half of the monuments or palace facades are covered in scaffolding, as the city is sprucing up for it s big celebration.
