St. Petersburg is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It is often referred to as the Venice of the North or the Paris of the East, but its beauty is really a brand all its own. From the White Nights festival during the mysterious summer twilight to top theater and ballet productions and concerts on magical winter evenings, the city offers a vibrant cultural life.

Although just 300 years old, St. Petersburg has a rich and exciting history, full of dramatic events and major historical figures. Founded in 1703 by Emperor Peter the Great as his «window on the West», St. Petersburg enjoys a vibrant, cosmopolitan atmosphere and some of the most beautiful architecture in Europe. For those interested in culture and history, St. Petersburg is the perfect holiday destination. Whether you chose to visit the city in the midst of a romantic and snowy Russian winter or during the dazzling White Nights of the summer months, you will be spellbound by St. Petersburg's culture and beauty.
Attractions in St. Petersburg overwhelm even the most seasoned travelers. From the State Hermitage Museum and the Mariinsky Theater to splendid suburban palaces and dozens of smaller museums, today's St. Petersburg is here to explore and enjoy.

St. Petersburg's suburbs provide the perfect day trip opportunity to escape the crowds and noise of the big city for the fresh air, green parks and romantic palaces of the countryside. Within a one or two hour train, car, bus or hydrofoil trip from St. Petersburg, lie several lovely parks with beautiful and romantic palaces, which were the resting places of several Tsars — the perfect day trip from the city. Bring a picnic basket or a knapsack full of snacks and enjoy beautiful and historic countryside!
