Saint Petersburg
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.

Things To Do in Saint Petersburg

Winter Palace
1,175 Reviews
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.

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.
