Of those who know about the anniversary only 57% consider it to be an event of European proportions. 22% said it was an event of European proportions while 13% said it was only an event for local people to celebrate.

The people who know most about the city's anniversary are the residents of the nearest European capital, Helsinki, where 74% know about the city's anniversary. 58% of the residents of Stockholm also know about it. In other European cities less than half of the respondents had heard about the tricentenary of Saint Petersburg.
