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 best two days - make them count. The city is just gorgeous and filled with art and rich in history! I'd say - the highlight of my trip!

Be prepared for long waits at the Hermitage (and VERY crowded conditions!). Don't miss Peterhof - it was optional but a highlight of my trip

This was a marvelous adventure. The city itself needs improvement but you can see that they are trying as best they can. We took a SPB 2 day deluxe tour for our group of 8 which provided a private coach. That I can certainly rate 5 star. We also included a night at the ballet to see Swan Lake for 4 of us (when in Russia a must). The service and the tour we received was marvelous and I cannot recommend SPB highly enough. The museums, palaces and church visits were awe inspiring as well as a must stop at the Vodka museum.

We did the 18 hour trip to Moscow the first day. It was long but wonderful We had a private tour on the second day in St. Petersburg. So glad we did because we were exhausted from the Moscow trip

Great experience in St. Petersburg. Did a 2-day excursion. Our two guides were excellent. Saw everything we needed and wanted to see. The included lunches were good and gave us a taste of local fare.
