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.
St. Petersburg is known for museums, historic sites, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the world behind art at The State Hermitage Museum, examine the collection at Saint Isaac's Cathedral, make a trip to Grand Peterhof Palace, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood.

To find other places to visit, more things to do, maps, and tourist information, use the St. Petersburg trip planner.

Accra, Ghana to St. Petersburg is an approximately 19-hour flight. You'll lose 3 hours traveling from Accra to St. Petersburg due to the time zone difference. In January, St. Petersburg is colder than Accra - with highs of -5°C and lows of -10°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 5th (Wed) so you can travel to Moscow.
