Peter the Great. Tsar and Carpenter.

Inspired by the emerging spirit of Enlightenment, Peter the Great tore his country from the isolation it was in with incredible tenacity and brought it to the center of Europe. He promoted the first Russian newspaper, introduced a more understandable alphabet, built the first Russian state museum with a public library, and founded the Russian Academy of Science. These amazing achievements were established in the city built by the decision of the great Tsar and baptized by him with the name of his protector: St. Petersburg.
