about this painting:
Kiss in St. Petersburg
The atmosphere of the northern capital
St. Petersburg has a great meaning for the whole Russian history. If you visit this city at least once you don’t want to leave it. The whole city is shrouded in an atmosphere of mystery and romance like this kiss painting. No wonder it is called the second capital of Russia – its northern capital. A wedding in St. Petersburg is something special. Newlyweds are surrounded by magnificent historic buildings.
The location of Palace Square allowed it to become the center of St. Petersburg. It is of great value for the residents of the city. The palace is a whole architectural ensemble which consists of:
- The main building of the square is the Baroque Winter Palace. By the way, the square was named after it.
- On the east side of the building is the former headquarters of the Tsar Guard. It was there that the main guard forces of the sovereign were located.
- On the south side of the building is the former building of the army general staff. It is painted in beautiful yellow-white color. It is located in a semicircle and surrounds the southern part of the building. It resembles a triumphal arch in Paris.
- On the west side is the Admiralty. There is also a garden of the same name. Executed in the same building style they are in harmony with each other creating a single ensemble.
The journey begins
What does the kiss painting mean? At the center of our attention in the painting is a couple. But they are no longer just a couple but newlyweds. We can sincerely rejoice for them because for their marriage they chose the most beautiful place in the city and one of the most beautiful places in Russia – Palace Square. It is not surprising that this place is one of the most popular places for wedding ceremonies.
Any marriage is built on such feelings as respect and patience. And of course, any marriage can be strengthened by children. And birth of a child always becomes a special event in the family. So then it just becomes difficult to realize how you lived before without children.
