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 historical perspective at Savior on the Spilled Blood and Peter and Paul Fortress. Discover out-of-the-way places like The Bath Block and Alexander Nevsky Lavra. Explore St. Petersburg's surroundings by going to Krasnoye Ozero Ski Resort (in Korobitsyno) and Historical-Cultural Center Varyazhskiy Dvor (in Vyborg). Next up on the itinerary: get outside with Eco Path, contemplate the long history of Palace Square, admire the masterpieces at The State Hermitage Museum, and examine the collection at Petrovskaya Aquatoria Museum-Model of St. Petersburg and Suburbs.
