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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Peterhof Grand Palace and Saint Isaac's Cathedral. Get some cultural insight at Peter and Paul Fortress and Nevsky Prospekt. Explore St. Petersburg's surroundings by going to Shlisselburg (Oreshek Fortress & Church of St. Nicholas). The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Nikolo-Bogoyavlenskiy Morskoy Sobor, examine the collection at Penates, I. Y. Repin's Estate Museum, delve into the lush surroundings at Eco Path, and get engrossed in the history at Petrovskaya Aquatoria Museum-Model of St. Petersburg and Suburbs.

To see photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the St. Petersburg tour itinerary planner .
