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 The Bath Block and Memorial Sign Strelka Of Vasilievskiy Island. Get some historical perspective at Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood and Historical-Cultural Center Varyazhskiy Dvor. Get out of town with these interesting St. Petersburg side-trips: Koporskaya Fortress (in Koporye), Gatchina Palace and Estate Museum (in Gatchina) and Statue of Torkel Knutsson (in Vyborg). There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Palace Square, examine the collection at Russian Museum, get engrossed in the history at Peter and Paul Fortress, and explore the galleries of Grand Peterhof Palace.

To see reviews, maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our St. Petersburg attractions planning tool .
