I want to note that the St. Petersburg is located in Neva's river delta, and only small part of it is near the Finnish Gulf.

Yes, it does exists :) As I can say, night life in Moscow is much more glamourous, rather than in Saint-Petersburg there are a lot of small clubs, each with a small dance hall (there are big ones also, but not in such number as in Moscow).

The boarder guard put a stamp on it like VMAtm described, without further comments. No one noticed on departing the country, either. Now I have a cool visa in my passport with a stamp, and not even the ...
