St PetersburgRussia's cultural capital and architectural masterpiece.

St Petersburg is a city of constant flux. From summer nights when 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, 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, featuring hundreds of prominent museums, cathedrals, sculptures, squares, and places of interest to explore. A visit to the Hermitage is essential – you’ll feast your eyes on a collection of over three million pieces from masters like Rembrandt, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Rubens, and thousands of others from every period. Showcased in the beautiful Romanov Winter Palace, art lovers will be overwhelmed by the exhibition's scope, selection, and setting, in one of Russia’s grandest, most iconic buildings. Afterwards, satiate your cultural appetite with the precision and perfection of Russia’s premier ballet and opera companies at the Mariinsky Theatre. Anyone with even the slightest interest in Russia’s cultural and artistic riches will find a visit to St Petersburg utterly delectable.
