St. Petersburg can by right be proud of its many museums. Among them you can find the famous Hermitage with its collections of the world art that are richer than those of Louvre or Prado, the State Russian Museum and Kunstkammer (the Chamber of Curiosities).

Itís worth sightseeing starting with the Peter and Paul Fortress. Founded in 1703 in the delta of the Neva river to defend the area from possible attacks, it has housed many remarkable events throughout the history of St. Petersburg, including assassinations, imprisonments and political intrigue. The centre of the Fortress is occupied by Peter and Paulís Cathedral, the majestic spire of which dominates the cityís skyline. The tombs of Russian emperors starting with Peter the Great are housed in the interior of the lavishly decorated cathedral.
