St. Petersburg

St. Petersburg
Peter the Great built the city as his “window on the west” and most often we arrive in St Petersburg the traditional way, on the train, overnight from Moscow. The sights of this city on the Neva (surprisingly, just over 300 years old) are many and varied, and include the Peter and Paul fortress, St Isaac’s cathedral, the battleship Aurora, and the awesome collections of the Hermitage, a true rival to the Louvre in Paris as Europe’s leading art museum.

There’s time in Nevsky Prospect, the city’s central artery, and in the evening a performance of the Kirov Ballet, assuming we haven’t already gone to the Bolshoi in Moscow. As in Moscow, we take a side-trip out of town, to the formidable tsarist palaces of Pushkin and Pavlosk. And while in town, we learn something about those two highly influential figures, Peter the Great, and Catherine, also - no surprise here - ‘the Great.’

Come with us for a matchless opportunity to explore this grand and imposing city.
