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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Losevo Rapids and The Bath Block. Kids will enjoy Peter and Paul Cathedral and Beach of Peter and Paul Fortress. Go for a jaunt from St. Petersburg to Kuzmolovsky to see WindTunnel FlyStation about 32 minutes away. There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at Peterhof Grand Palace, wander the streets of Nevsky Prospekt, don't miss a visit to Palace Square (Dvortsovaya Ploshchad), and examine the collection at Saint Isaac's Cathedral.

To see other places to visit, traveler tips, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the St. Petersburg online vacation planner .

If you are flying in from Serbia, the closest major airport is Pulkovo Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 19°C, and evening lows to 8°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
