Saint Petersburg Travel Guide

Known as the "Venice of the North", St. Petersburg is situated on the shores of the Baltic Sea. The Neva river passes through the city on its way to the sea. On the orders of Tsar Peter the Great, the city replaced Moscow as the new capital of the House of Romanov until 1918. With the Russian royal family acting as strong advocates of western European culture, St. Petersburg is full of beautiful European-style buildings. The whole city exudes an elegant romantic atmosphere. The essence of the landscape of St. Petersburg is held in the many exquisite royal palaces and art galleries.

St Petersburg - is the northernmost metropolis in the world, and the second largest city in Russia. St. Petersburg was founded 05/16/1703 by Peter I, when after the victory over the army of the Swedish king decided to build on the Hare island fortress. With the XVIII to beginning of XX century, it was the capital of Russia. St. Petersburg is located on the coast of the Gulf of Finland and the east is Lake Ladoga, because this city was called "Venice of the North." The climate here is special, quite humid, with warm summers and moderately cold winters. Tourists often prefer to stay in St. Petersburg in the summer when it's time the White Nights. They are going from the middle of May until mid July.
