Known as the “Venice of the North,” Saint Petersburg is built on over 100 islands in the Neva Delta, connected by canals and bridges. This planned city, with its precise streets and elegant architecture, is much more similar to other major European cities like Paris or Amsterdam than to most Russian cities.

In late spring and summer, the sun barely even sets, encouraging visitors to take advantage of the extended daylight and make the most of Saint Petersburg’s famous nightlife. Unravel the mysteries of Russian culture with a visit to The Hermitage, one of the largest art museums in the world, or the Russian Museum, which houses an incredible collection of Russian art and spans four grand palaces. Must-see spots in Saint Petersburg include Palace Square at the heart of the city and the Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, a colorful cathedral reminiscent of Saint Basil’s in Moscow. For a chance to relax, take a leisurely walk through the perfectly manicured Field of Mars or the lush green of the Summer Garden.
