About St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

Peter the Great styled this to be his Venice of the North. Italian architects created baroque facades, the match of any, to line the banks of the Neva River. Long, arched bridges join the city's halves. You'll want to see the spires of the Saints Peter and Paul Fortress, the blue domes of the Ouspensky Cathedral and, of course, some of the million masterworks of art contained in the Hermitage galleries of the Winter Palace.

"the church of the spilled blood was exactly what i thought " old " russia would look..." in 12 reviews.

"...- - at the but we didnt have a choice - also our horrible tour guide kept us lunching at a restaurant for almost 2 hours of..." in 9 reviews.

Russian visas are expensive and take a real effort to acquire--highly recommend a packaged tour.

We did a two day private tour - absolutely recommend taking the time to research tours....the private tour was definitely worth it - got in to all the sites quicker - no waiting in lines, no buses - heaven!

One of the most beautiful cities. Too much to see and do in 2days. The ballet and Hermitage are musts. This whetted our appetite enough that we would recommend a four days or more stay on any trip. The local people are sort of cold to westerners away from the tours.

Given visas are needed for a lot of guests to get off the boat, definitely take advantage of at least one excursion. But also be prepared as English speakers to have excursions canceled and a plan for a backup. You will be given little notice of a cancellation.

Enjoyed seeing the sites, getting on and off was a challenge from the city not the ship. We did enjoy the tours though. Worth the work. Hermitage nice to see not sure if it was worth the crowds though.
