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.
Get some cultural insight at The State Hermitage Museum and Saint Isaac's Cathedral. For shopping fun, head to Nevsky Prospekt or Art Bank. Venture out of the city with trips to WindTunnel FlyStation (in Kuzmolovsky), Staraya Ladoga Archeological Museum Preserve (in Staraya Ladoga) and Gatchina Palace and Estate Museum (in Gatchina). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at The Marly Palace, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Nikolo-Bogoyavlenskiy Morskoy Sobor, slough off your stress at Turkish baths, and don't miss a visit to Memorial Sign Strelka Of Vasilievskiy Island.
