St Petersburg in detail

The city of St. Petersburg offers an unmissable mix of fine Czarist palaces, elegant churches and calm waterways reminiscent of Venice. With a lurid history, this destination is like a living museum with plenty to explore; have your camera or sketchpad ready for the breath-taking architecture and don’t miss one of the world’s largest art museums, the Hermitage.

Sightseeing is a must in the city of St Petersburg. Visit the awesome St. Issac’s Cathedral which is actually not that old, built in the 19th century, or head to the gruesome spot of Emperor Alexander II’s execution at The Church of the Resurrection of Christ. To experience the culture of Russia, head to the former Mikhailovsky Palace with its adjacent gardens; an ideal spot to unwind after a busy day.

Let the locals entertain you before you leave. The famous cultural performances at the Mariinsky Theatre showcase the best dancers, musicians and composers of the country.
