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.
The State Hermitage Museum and Catherine Palace and Park will appeal to museum buffs. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood and Kazan Cathedral. And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Nevsky Prospekt, catch a live performance at Yusupov Palace, see the interesting displays at The Bath Block, and take an in-depth tour of Peter and Paul Fortress.

Plan my trip to St. Petersburg with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.
