Why travel to Saint Petersburg
Known as Russia’s cultural capital, a trip to Saint Petersburg will prove full of cultural discoveries.
From summer nights where the Arctic sun never sets, to beautiful white winters spent enchanted by ballet and theatre, the city offers something new for each season.
Formerly known as Petrograd or Leningrad, and fondly nicknamed “Peter” by the locals, the Venice of the North is simply a must see.
The cultural impact of this metropolis cannot be overstated. It’s so packed with world-class establishments that UNESCO declared the entire city centre a World Heritage Site.
Hundreds of prominent museums, cathedrals, sculptures, squares, and places of interest await you in this glorious city.
