The city of St. Petersberg awaits participants

St. Petersburg lies on the river Neva and was founded in 1703 by Tsar Peter the Great as his 'Window to the West'. It was the capital of the Russian Empire for 200 years and has also been known as Petrograd and Leningrad. It is Europe’s eighth largest city and a major cultural centre, and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

World Cup visitors will be treated to dazzling palaces including the baroque Winter Palace, which now houses the Hermitage museum with its important collection of art, not to mention Faberge jewellery and the Russian imperial regalia. The city also boasts many churches, including the huge St. Isaac's Cathedral.

The QubicaAMF Bowling World Cup is the world's largest annual sports event in terms of number of nations competing. It was first held in Dublin, Ireland, in 1965.

Last year's event was held in Caracas, Venezuela, where the winners were Osku Palermaa (Finland) for the men and Diandra Asbaty (USA) for the women.
