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.
Explore hidden gems such as Gatchina Palace and Estate Museum and Petrovskaya Aquatoria Museum-Model of St. Petersburg and Suburbs. Get some historical perspective at Saint Isaac's Cathedral and Alexander Nevsky Lavra. Get out of town with these interesting St. Petersburg side-trips: Vyborg (Historical-Cultural Center Varyazhskiy Dvor & Statue of Torkel Knutsson) and Koporskaya Fortress (in Koporye). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Memorial Sign Strelka Of Vasilievskiy Island, soak in style at Turkish baths, don't miss a visit to Palace Square, and see the interesting displays at Oranienbaum State Museum Reserve.
