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.

Next up on the itinerary: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Saint Isaac's Cathedral, steep yourself in history at Bronze Horseman, Monument To Peter I, don't miss a visit to Palace Square, and see the interesting displays at Russian Museum.
