Things To Do
The beautiful city of St. Petersburg is home to extravagant palaces and museums, architectural treasures, world-famous galleries and meandering waterways. Referred to by locals as "Gorod Muzei" – “the museum city”, St. Petersburg boasts an abundance of impressive exhibits and historical collections. Marvel at works by Rubens, Rembrandt, Michelangelo and Picasso in the State Hermitage Museum or discover modern pieces in Erarta Museum and Gallery of Contemporary Art. Visit Anichkov Palace, next to the landmark Anichkov Bridge or the famous Winter Palace - an imposing structure that dominates Palace Square and the south embankment of the Neva River. Retreat to the peace and tranquility of Alexander Garden or the Maritime Victory Park or navigate St. Petersburg’s numerous rivers and canals on a river boat or a sightseeing cruise.
