What to see and do in St Petersburg?
Book cheap flights to St Petersburg and arrive in Russia's second largest city. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the city has been rapidly making up for lost time and is now one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Russia.
The historic center is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site with the Hermitage Museum and The Winter Palace being said to be one of the world’s greatest museums, exhibiting priceless works by Rembrandt, Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Reubens and many more. The beautiful Andreyevsky Cathedral and the ornate Menshikov Palace are two of many attractions that you can find on Vasilievsky Island.
Take a tour of the canals by boat, enjoy the sights of the Peter and Paul Fortress, the Cruiser Aurora and the Fontanka. This is still just the tip of the iceberg of what Saint Petersburg has to offer, but the number one “must do” is seeing a famous Bolshoi or Mariinsky ballet, either at the world-class Mariinsky Theatre or, for a slightly cheaper option, the Conservatory Theatre.
