Why Go on a Tour of St. Petersburg

Often referred to as the Northern capital of Russia, magnificent Saint Petersburg is just unmatched in its grandeur. The city of bizarre palaces and gorgeous cathedrals, lavish parks, water canals, and world-class museums symbolizing the history and culture of the country as brightly as the capital city, Moscow.

Hardly anyone would argue that St. Petersburg isn't a unique city as throughout its comparatively short 3-centuries history, it has managed to become the capital of the Russian Empire, see three revolutions, and acquire an impressive part of the country's outstanding heritage of various epochs.

Since Peter the Great moved the seat of the state to the shores of the Baltic Sea, Russian "Venice of the North" has become recognized internationally as a crown jewel of European capitals.

If you decided to include this treasure trove to your travel agenda, you have to remember that any Saint Petersburg tour won't be complete without such legendary sights as the striking Winter Palace, the famous Hermitage Museum, the glorious St. Isaac's Cathedral and the breathtaking Church of the Saviour on Spilt Blood.

However, those are just the beginning of the list of everything that Saint Petersburg has in store, bearing in mind that almost every corner of this amazing city is imbued with history and charm. Not to say that you may easily enrich your St. Petersburg itinerary by traveling to the outskirts of the city to see the marvels of palace architecture - mindblowing Peterhof and Catherine's Palace in Tsarskoe Selo. All in all, the Northern capital of Russia is the fairytale destination you'll definitely want to come back again and again so don't put your Saint Petersburg exploration on the back burner.
