Saint Petersburg has always been the center of culture and science. The city alone is home to 120 universities, colleges, technical colleges and around 2,000 libraries. A large amount of knowledge that settles in the former Leningrad is also the reason for the high cultural and social values ​​of the Russians. Respect for the elderly, good behavior at the table and impeccable behavior in public places, all of these are part of Russian upbringing. Mother Russia is a living, constantly developing organism. The Russians themselves are proud, curious and open-minded people.

If I think back 20 years, Russia was not always a cosmopolitan country. Back then, life felt like a bubble to me. The communist economic system and the associated nationalization of all institutions ensured that one received an education and had health care, but the standards could not be compared by far with those of the West. So there weren’t – as in Europe – various supermarket chains. There was only one. Which drastically limited the choice.

Monotonous in every way

At that time, as a young woman, being able to let off steam in terms of fashion technology was practically impossible. Anyway, as mentioned at the beginning, there were only domestic shoe and clothing manufacturers. To stand out from the crowd, as you might want from time to time at this age, regardless of your origin, was rather unrealistic. I also remember how gastronomy was completely different. Today every corner is teeming with restaurants with menus from all over the world, back then, besides pierogi and pelmeni – these are filled dumplings – there wasn’t a lot of exotic food. So the offer was monotonous in every respect. The country was forced to remain withdrawn.

Today there can be no more talk of any of this. Regardless of whether it is culinary or fashion-wise, Saint Petersburg has caught up. Some European cities may even be outdated. Nowadays you can find everything your heart desires on the Bolshoy Prospect, the Newskij Prospect – two of the classiest shopping streets in Saint Petersburg – or in the Grand Palace – the most elite shopping center in the city – from Armani to Zegna. If you don’t think much of shopping and are only looking for one or the other souvenir, you will probably find it in the shadow of the Church of the Redeemer. Countless stalls with little Matrioshka dolls gather here. The typical Russian fur hat “” Ushanka “” can also be purchased here.

Hungry in Saint Petersburg

The food scene in the city of five million is huge. In addition to the typical Russian cuisine, there are restaurants from all over the world. But if you’ve ever been to Russia, you should of course treat yourself to a classic Russian menu.123helpme accounts My recommendation: a plate of borscht – it’s the famous Russian beetroot soup – or Soljanka – a sour, sweet soup – and pelmeni, delicious little dumplings that are boiled in water. Pierogi, small rolls, should not be missing from any good meal and golubtsi – the popular cabbage rolls that are filled with minced meat or chicken. You should try them in the Banshiki restaurant. I recommend blinis for dessert. A kind of Russian pancake. It doesn’t always have to be caviar – which, by the way, was considered an everyday food when I was a child. Those were the days

Insider tips

Cities are like relationships. Only when you’ve lived together do you know each other’s quirks. It is the same with my former hometown. There are things that you can only know if you have lived in this place or come from there. So for all those who are planning a trip to Russia – you should definitely consider these tips:

1. The city is best visited between May and June. The temperatures are most pleasant here. Only people who are insensitive to the cold can be advised to travel in the winter months. Minus 25 degrees Celsius are not uncommon.

2. Under no circumstances should you exchange money in private exchange offices or at the airport. The exchange rate here is significantly worse than in the city. It therefore makes sense to withdraw money from the bank or pay directly by card. Nor should one introduce torn euro or dollar bills. They are denied in all banks.

3. Use only designated taxis. Unpleasant surprises can await tourists in private taxis. In any case, it is advisable to find out about the official taxi numbers beforehand.

4. Over five million inhabitants ensure a lot of traffic. In order to always arrive at your destination on time, it is best to allow an additional hour.

5. Like most metropolises in the world, Saint Petersburg suffers from high crime rates. It is therefore advisable to leave all valuables in the hotel safe. Lending cameras to strangers for a photo? Not a good idea in Saint Petersburg. Jewelry, expensive watches, expensive bags – be careful and hide.

6. My insider tip: The city’s underground stations are the most beautiful and magnificent in the world. With four lines and 59 stations, they are an absolute must-see. The platforms are majestic and elegant. Mighty marble columns and crystal chandeliers adorn the underground passages.

Sunday and Monday were very wet in large parts of Austria. It rained almost as much within 24 hours as in an average September, as the meteorologists of the Central Institute for Meteorology and Geodynamics (ZAMG) announced.

Maximum value: 72 liters per square meter

Wolfsegg (Upper Austria) got around 64.4 liters per square meter by Monday morning. The ZAMG reported that the monthly mean of 82 liters per square meter is not missing. Only in Mattsee in Salzburg has it rained more since Sunday morning. 72 liters per square meter went down there, which means that more than half of the monthly mean of 114 liters (or 114 millimeters, note) has already been reached. “” In many regions there will be 25 to 35 millimeters of precipitation until Tuesday morning. In places, especially during thunderstorms, 50 millimeters are possible, “” said Thomas Wostal from ZAMG. The monthly mean may already be reached in isolated cases.

It remains thunderstorm

Especially in the south of the country, thunderstorms can be expected until Tuesday morning. It is likely to rain a lot in Vienna and parts of Lower Austria, Upper Austria, Styria, Salzburg and Tyrol. In places, small-scale floods as a result of the amount of precipitation cannot be ruled out, said Wostal. The rain should stop on Tuesday. The clouds loosen up and the sun comes out in places.

The new Burgtheater management took office with three good premieres. And the expected happened at the Salzburg Easter Festival. They should be locked up

Even after a few decades at work, this moment is still one of the most exciting: the curtain rises over a theater performance and the critic, who up to this point was full of expectations and prejudices, is free and tense. If a new director takes office, the self-interests of a lover prevail: because whoever does not love the theater even after many, often arduous years and does not wish it good prosperity, better withdraw voluntarily.

The Burgtheater has taken the first steps into a new era under Martin Kušej, and it is relieved to see that the three premieres on three evenings went well, and some went extremely well. Against Ulrich Rasche’s staging of “” Bakchen “” by Euripides, it was objected that his style of monumentalized, heated, highly ritualized word-centeredness was already known from Munich. The argument goes nowhere: a director has his own signature, and the proportion of the audience who seek opportunities for comparison abroad is likely to be negligible. But theater is played for the audience and not for the criticism, in other words: to get to know a great director is the audience’s right. And if the Burgtheater director Peymann had once followed the arguments that are directed against Rasche today, Einar Schleef would not have been allowed to write theater history with Elfriede Jelinek’s “” Sportstück “”: Schleef, to which Rasche refers, has his universally admired style with this Staging crowned.

Quick “” Bakchen “” are not his best, but a significant work, and they show how organically the remaining mixes with the new ensemble. Not to mention Kušej’s star Franz Pätzold, who presents himself here as a great charismatic and first-rate linguistic virtuoso. So: go there!

This applies even more to the production “Birds”, a political-poetic tabloid grotesque by the Canadian Wajdi Mouawad. Light as a feather, and yet as difficult as the ominous Middle East conflict itself, the story of a couple is told in four languages ​​- German, English, Hebrew, Arabic – who are not meant for each other: He is a Berlin Jew, she is Arab. But instead of a boring Romeo and Juliet derivative, you see a wonderfully played tragic comedy (director: Itay Tiran), and the languages ​​mix in such a way that you wonder how you can stay at the “Burg” without Hebrew for so long could live. So: watch!

On the third evening Kušej brought his Munich-based director of Albee’s “Virginia Woolf” “to the big house. With its sexual morality and its spelled psychoanalysis, the piece bears the skin of the early American sixties. That is why Kušej leaves it at the time it was created and stages it in cold light in front of white walls as a strong experimental arrangement. Go there! Because at least the new key players Bibiana Beglau and Norman Hacker have to be seen.

What threatens the Salzburg Easter Festival is not worth commenting on because it was foreseeable. The world conductor Christian Thielemann has to retire in 2022, and the Staatskapelle Dresden, which was still trying to break away from him opportunistically, did not benefit from the shameful act: From 2023 you will experience changing orchestras, ballet, jazz and the Toten Hosen in Salzburg. It’s a shame about the money that is wasted on cushioning the pension shock of the then 73-year-old ex-opera director Bachler. The Easter Festival should have been shut down after the death of its founder Karajan. This insight now seems to have prevailed. Only Bachler’s resolution measures would not have been necessary for this.

In Hong Kong, things have been simmering beneath the surface for some time. It was only in March that Amnesty International reported a deterioration in human rights. Citizens feel increasingly restricted in their rights by China. How the current mass protests came about.

When it was taken over in 1997, Beijing guaranteed the former British crown colony basic rights such as freedom of expression and freedom of the press for at least 50 years under the principle of “one country, two systems”. The opposition accuses Beijing of increasingly interfering in Hong Kong’s affairs and thereby violating the autonomy agreements.
