Leningrad Then, Saint Petersburg Now

The Battle of Leningrad was the Stalingrad of northeastern Russia. From 1941 to 1944, eight hundred seventy-two days, Soviet forces and civilians held out against a combined German-Finish-Spanish Fascist army. The siege was a nightmare for many and the scars of battle still affect many.

Izsmile has a collection of pictures of the siege superimposed on present-day photos of the same place
. This method really shows how a place can change over time. Geography truly a four-dimension art and science.
