Appearances can be deceiving. My wife and I visited St.Petersburg 
two years ago, and learned that it had been largely bombed out in WW 
II. It has subsequently been reconstructed, and buildings along the 
main thoroughfares have restored "period" facades, but those are 
mostly plaster and paint.

There is a church in Vienna that seems to have marble pillars.  However I
was told by the guide that they are painted wood; the only marble in the
church was a memorial in the vestry.
