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.
OF4***56Outstanding beautiflly looked after with massive number of historical interesting and superb collections. To do the Hermitage and all the associated buildings properly you need two days. Tour guides will falsly claim you get in quicker you do not as everyone goes on tour and no one goes without tour.....quicker without tour.Also book via internet and you have even quicker entrance with no queues . This magnificient Palace is a reason to visit St Petersburg alone and nothing else.Do not use taxi unless Russian local books and aranges fare. Eat before you go in.
OF4***56A must on any visit to St Petersburg. A superbly maintained historical beautiful Palace that is visited by umpteen thousands each day . Be prepared for some hours in queues even on a tour . Tour guides will tell you you get in quicker with them .... you don’t .The Amber room ( no photos under any circumstances ) is worth the visit alone.Get local transport cards for bus trolly bus and metro ( 5 days 431rub=46cny) and save a fortune.Do both of the Palace but one tour is still great.
Katerina KovalenkoMust visit if you are in St.Petersburg. The place where history of the city begins. Nice museum and architecture monument. Interesting to visit prison and walk on on a top on one of the walls. There is a beautiful view to different centre parts of the city. Good place for walks even in winter. Comfortable shoes must have
Spanning nearly two continents and 11 time zones, Russia is country full of wonder and surprise. The Russian Far East and Siberia are synonymous with remoteness, while St. Petersburg’s elegance evokes memories of long lost Czars. Moscow’s Kremlin and St. Basil’s Cathedral are quintessential symbols of this enormous country.

At the Palace square of St. Petersburg. This vast expanse is definitely one of the most striking and spacious palace square in the world. I love how grand and expansive the place is. This is definitely the most famous public space in the city. It gets crowded at times but there will always be enough space for everyone. Definitely a must visit when you’re in the city of St. Petersburg.
I am just trying to find some Chinese culture moments in my daily life
#triplocal Saint- Petersburg is the city of inspiration and never-endless celebrations. Celebration of your talents and best ideas for life. You feel really creative living here. That’s why I am thankful to be the part of that city!
Around the plaza of the Savior on the Spilled Blood Church. These artists sell their works for a bargain. You can even have your own portrait painted/drawn on the spot. Such great talents need more appreciation.
Amazed by these beautiful carriages in front of the State Hermitage Museum. The museum was closed that day so we had to postpone our visit. Just strolled around the vicinity and watched the buskers in the square.
Visited Savior on the Spilled Blood Church. Unfortunately, I was not able to enter since they were doing some repairs and constructions. All I can say is, Even If I just look at it from the outside, It’s so mesmerizing. All the intricate designs and details are just gorgeous! It’s also bustling with tourists.
Saint Petesburg was an amazing experience, I decided to buy a Russian hat just because we'll I'm in Russia and I will never use it again haha but I really like it, I tried some really really good hot dogs I'm in love with them, all Russian hod dogs are amazing in my other hand I have a coffee to enjoy my view of this unique place #deliciousfood
St.Petersburg is a very beautiful city with historical places and a very unique architecture... And one of the must-visit attractions in St.Petersburg is The State Hermitage Museum..Such an majestic place...The moment you enter it you will have that royalty vibes...There are a lot of tourists that are lining up for the tickets and it will take a lot of hours to get them...So instead you can use the ticket machine right next to gate ... Probably it will cost you a little bit more but it will definitely save your time...
