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.
Get a sense of the local culture at The State Hermitage Museum and Neva Embankments. Relax by the water at Beach Laskovy and Golden Beach. And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Nevsky Prospekt, take in the views from The Bridge With Dam Outlet On River Strelka, hit the slopes at All-Season Resort Igora, and see the interesting displays at Saint Isaac's Cathedral.
