There is something about Saint Petersburg that makes you fall in love with this city from your very first visit. This “Northern Capital” of Russia and famous “Venice of the North” is a relatively young city by both Russian and European standards. Tsar Peter the Great founded the city only in 1703. In spite of its short life, Saint Petersburg has a rich and unique history. The cultural capital of Russia marvels with its high art, beautiful bridges, tree-lined avenues, remarkable architecture, and rich cultural traditions. Saint Petersburg is a proud owner of the Hermitage, one of the largest art museums in the world. Whether you visit the city in the snowy winter months or during the impressive White Nights of the summer, you will be amazed by its magnificence and beauty.
See for yourself.
