There is something about St. 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. The city was founded only in 1703 by Tsar Peter the Great. In spite of its short life, St. 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. St. 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.
