Saint Petersburg (formerly Petrograd and Leningrad) is the second largest city in Russia, and the nation's former capital. Construction began on the city in 1703 during the reign of Peter I.
Adventures in Saint PetersburgEdit
A station of Henry Jones's 1908-1910 world lecture tour on their way to Kuntsevo, young Indiana Jones had an incident with a pig in Saint Petersburg that resulted in it painted purple.
Indiana Jones revisited Saint Petersburg with his father on their way to Georgia in 1913. He met Tamar Rustava there.
In 1917, Jones returned to the city, then known as Petrograd, as a spy. The following year, the Russian capital was moved.
Petrograd was renamed Leningrad in honor of Vladimir Lenin following his death in 1924.
