  • Never would have thought that 2 sphinxes would be found in the middle of St Petersburg, Russia, but you are never to old to discover new things. 
  • Over the gray Ribbon of the River under a heavy sky St settled heroes of ancient legends and curses, guests from the afterworld. Mysterious and deep, full of ancient serenity, keepers of ancient knowledge, they became a symbol of Russia's northern capital, guardians of its river approaches. How could they deliver here? What is behind the letters adorn their pedestals? and why otkoloty their beards? According to legends, they leave at night their marble pedestals and walk along the promenade. And while the University Embankment, it is easy to believe.
