City Break St. Petersburg
It took some 18 years to build St. Petersburg, but it was worth it for Peter the Great. Russia needed a new capital after Ivan the Terrible let the previous capital, Novgorod, waste away. Since then several Tsars and Tsarina’s lived in one of the palaces that are found in St. Petersburg. During a city break in Saint Petersburg, a visit to at least one of the palaces, is a must. Except palaces, St. Petersburg also has many museums, including the Hermitage which is undoubtedly the best known. The Hermitage is located in the Winter Palace, and is one of the largest art and cultural history museums in the world.
Lovers of theatre (Mariinsky Theatre) and churches (Church of the Savior on Blood) will be in their element in St Petersburg. With all this beauty, you would almost forget that the city has many shopping and entertainment venues.
