Founded in 1703 to be the most “European” city of Russia, St.Petersburg remains “Russia's Venice of the North” and “Window to the West” - just like Peter the Great meant it. It competes with Moscow in its beauty and splendor. Not in vain it was the capital of the Russian Empire for two centuries. The best European and Russian architects were invited to build houses and palaces, edifices and churches, bridges and monuments, parks and gardens, which are real masterpieces. City sightseeing around Saint-Petersburg will give you a brilliant opportunity to marvel at its compelling palaces, museums, theatres, squares and parks, which all together form St. Petersburg cultural heritage. Duration of the excursion: 3 hours.
