St Petersburg, the creature of Peter the Great, the tsar who wanted to make this city "modern", opening it to Westernisation and European culture. And, in fact, the great tsar’s will has not been completely lost. Keep reading

Short trip to the St Petersburg of Peter the Great

The beautiful St. Petersburg is ready to amaze you with a series of attractions to be discovered. Walk along the immense Nevsky Prospekt, an avenue that crosses the city for almost 5km, dotted with churches, theaters and historic shops. Visit the Fortress of Saints Peter and Paul and the rich Cathedral of Saint Isaac, a riot of gold, marble and lapis lazuli, before spending a whole day - or even more! - at the Hermitage museum. It is a museum complex of immense value, the custodian of over three million works of art and artifacts. Finally, don’t miss the Peterhof Complex, which is reminiscent of Versailles due to its architecture, gardens and fountains, and the Catherine Palace in Pushkin, perfect for a trip out of town.

Saint Petersburg

Between tradition and modernity: welcome to St Petersburg

In the imaginary of Peter the Great, the city of St Petersburg should have been a "modern" city, open to westernisation and European culture. And in fact, the city has collected the Tsar's will very well, combining traditional and regal buildings - such as the majestic Hermitage and the Peter and Paul Fortress - with the all-European charm of cutting-edge buildings, such as the technological tower of Gazprom. Discover the dual identity of the splendid Saint Petersburg.

  • Visit the majestic Hermitage Museum
  • Don't miss the glittering Gazprom Tower
  • Discover the splendid Peter and Paul Fortress
