Vyborg. Arts school building.

This building has attracted me, almost as soon as I saw it. And, I must say, it was quite a long time ago...
Such a white, graceful and majestic thing rising on a granite rock, facing the bay. Surrounded by deserted silence, with absolutely no one around... When you stay next to it, you feel like the city around you completely disappears.
Personally, I always get a fantastically-emotional-heroic feeling there, that reminds me Sergei Snegov's sci-fi prose.
I even a little jealous of Mr. Ullberg, who managed to not only design, but also to build this wonder, which is now the «Hermitage-Vyborg» Center.
