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.
Step out of St. Petersburg to go to Kuzmolovsky and see WindTunnel FlyStation, which is approximately 32 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at The State Hermitage Museum, get engrossed in the history at Peterhof Grand Palace, head off the coast to Yelagin Island, and browse the exhibits of Peter and Paul Fortress.

To see maps, ratings, reviews, and tourist information, go to the St. Petersburg sightseeing website .
