Built on a desolate swamp as a showcase capital of Imperial Russia, this grand city has certainly lived up to the expectations of its founder, Tsar Peter the Great.
Russian Museum and Nevsky Prospekt are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Head to Photogallery Rachmaninov Garden and City Art Galleryfor some retail therapy. The adventure continues: pause for some serene contemplation at Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, kick back and relax at Beach of Peter and Paul Fortress, shop like a local with Borey Art Center, and contemplate the waterfront views at Neva Embankments.
