Saint Petersburg is a very young city compared to old European capitals and, probably, the only city in the world that has acquired so much historic significance in such a short time. The sheer grandeur and history of Russia's imperial capital never fail to amaze, but this is also a city with a revolutionary spirit.
St. Petersburg has all the ingredients for an unforgettable travel experience. It charms and entices in every season and it has a true wealth of attractions and experiences to offer every type of traveller. One can visit spectacular Imperial palaces, quirky museums; go on boat trips along the city's majestic rivers and canals and visit one of the most popular attractions is The Winter Palace. A treasury of art and antiquities and of astonishing state rooms of Russia's imperial family. If you’re traveling between May to October, there are a number of ways to explore the city by boat, from taking the hydrofoil to the suburban palace and park at Peterhof to enjoying dinner and live jazz on an evening cruise along the Neva. Peterhof Palace is absolutely unmissable, especially in summer when the park's incredible collection of fountains is in operation. The Church on Spilled Blood is also one of St. Petersburg's most instantly recognizable landmarks, its colourful Russian Revival architecture makes a stark contrast to the elegant neoclassicism of the buildings next door.
