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.
Start off your visit on the 4th (Thu): pause for some serene contemplation at Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, make a trip to Palace Square, then examine the collection at Saint Isaac's Cathedral, and finally explore the galleries of Kazan Cathedral. Here are some ideas for day two: pause for some serene contemplation at Naval Cathedral of St. Nicholas, then contemplate the long history of The Marly Palace, then browse the exhibits of Grand Peterhof Palace and Gardens, and finally see the interesting displays at Russian Museum.
