St. Petersburg

Founded in 1703 by Emperor Peter the Great as his “window on the West”, St. Petersburg is a city of haunting magnificence.  This imperial capital is truly cosmopolitan and has amazing architecture.  The city’s high art, lavish architecture, wild nightlife and an extraordinary history makes this Russian place possibly more interesting than Moscow.  Some of the great artists and writers found endless inspirations here. The Historic Centre of Saint Petersburg and Related Groups of Monuments constitute a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Saint Petersburg is also home to The Hermitage, one of the largest art museums in the world.
