Built on a desolate swamp as a showcase capital of Imperial Russia, this grand city has certainly lived up to the expectations of its founder, Tsar Peter the Great.
Head to Tretyakov's Gallery and Art of Foto Galleryfor some retail therapy. Get some cultural insight at Savior on the Spilled Blood and Saint Isaac's Cathedral. There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at Erarta Museum, contemplate the waterfront views at Neva Embankments, wander the streets of Nevsky Prospekt, and explore the engaging exhibits at The Shadow Museum.
