St. Petersburg
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.
Sobor Petra I Pavla and Neva Embankments will appeal to history buffs. The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of The Marly Palace, snap pictures at Palace Bridge, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, and make a trip to Palace Square.

Plan my St. Petersburg trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
