Day 2
St. Petersburg | St. Petersburg

This morning your guide will meet you in your hotel lobby, to get you acquainted with Peter the Great’s “Venice of the North”.

Begin with a visit to the Peter and Paul Fortress: the birthplace of St. Petersburg. Cross the gates, bridges and moats that date back to the 18th century. You will discover how it served as Peter’s bastion against the Swedes. Your guide will regale you with stories of the various members of the Romanovs who are buried within its walls.

Continue to Palace Square. The Winter Palace – a Russian baroque architectural masterpiece. It was home to all the Russian royals except for Paul, until the 1917 revolution. Converted into the Hermitage Museum, it houses a priceless collection of art, artifacts and antiquities, worth millions of dollars. From Greek and Roman relics to Matisse, Van Gogh and da Vinci – the art collection at the Hermitage is one of the largest and finest in the world.

Next, walk to St. Isaac’s Cathedral with its columns made of malachite and lapis lazuli. If you feel strong enough, climb up to the pinnacle of its massive golden dome for some of the most gorgeous views over St. Petersburg.

Note: This afternoon’s sightseeing is on foot. Please wear comfortable footwear.

St. Petersburg is also renown for its fine arts. The ballet, opera and symphony are some of the best across the world. Or if you’re gastronomically inclined then a caviar and vodka tasting is a must.
