St. Petersburg Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia

Four hundred miles west of Moscow is St. Petersburg, Russia. A striking city resting on the banks of the Neva River, St. Petersburg has long been a draw for lovers of architecture, as St. Petersburg tours often begin with the city’s legendary structures.

Enter a world of towering cathedrals, palaces, and gardens, many of them set down by the order of Peter the Great in the 18th century. As the decades passed, later members of Russian royalty added to the city’s opulence by constructing additional marvels. Walk through the Palace Square, located in the heart of St. Petersburg and home of the Winter Palace, the sprawling home of Catherine the Great. Next, pay a visit to St. Isaac’s Cathedral and its gold-plated dome, which glitters in the sunshine. If you walk to the top of its dome, you will be rewarded with astonishing views of the city.

Continue your St. Petersburg sightseeing by taking a boat ride down the river to Peterhof Gardens & Palace. This gilded structure and its lush array of plant life was constructed to rival France’s Palace of Versailles, and is a popular place for a quiet walk in nature or to reflect upon the engineering marvel of its 60 fountains, all of which flow continuously without the use of pumps.

Spend your evening walking along Nevsky Prospect, St. Petersburg’s main thoroughfare. Besides offering even more beautiful architecture to gaze upon, Nevsky Prospect is loaded with restaurants and boutiques. Enjoy a delicious meal, shop around for the perfect Russian souvenir, and plan the itinerary for your next day in this magnificent city.

Let’s put aside emotions and take facts.
In September 2016 Saint Petersburg was recognised as Europe’s Leading Destination by the World Travel Awards.
World Travel Awards are considered as the top achievement in the tourism sphere. Annually prizes are given after thousands of experts and tourists voted for a candidate. The selection priorities are safety, extensive infrastructure and hotel chain in destination.
The awards have been called the “Oscars” of the travel industry by The Wall Street Journal.
