St. Petersburg

— 5 nights

Venice of the North

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.
St. Petersburg is known for museums, historic sites, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, take an in-depth tour of Catherine Palace and Park, take a stroll through Nevsky Prospekt, and examine the collection at Russian Museum.

You can plan St. Petersburg trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

Lahore, Pakistan to St. Petersburg is an approximately 19.5-hour flight. You'll gain 2 hours traveling from Lahore to St. Petersburg due to the time zone difference. In September, St. Petersburg is much colder than Lahore - with highs of 19°C and lows of 9°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Thu) to allow time to travel to Moscow.

Russia travel guide

4.7
Mother Russia
Feared and revered not long ago as the land "behind the Iron Curtain" and before that as "the land of the Tsars," Russia is a land of many contrasts. Spreading over two continents, it is also the largest country in the world and one of the most powerful. Founded by a group of East Slavs in the 10th century, it is home to over 160 different ethnic groups and indigenous peoples. They have all left their mark on the land, but the Slavic and Byzantine traditions hold a special place in Russia's rich historical and cultural legacy. The diverse natural beauty includes vast swathes of plains intersected with thousands of rivers, lakes, and dramatic mountain ranges along the southern borders. Arctic tundra, taiga, mixed forests, steppe, and desert-like areas successively carpet the land from the north to the south. Perfectly preserved ancient towns surrounded by mighty kremlins with colorful onion-domed churches attract tourists just as much as the nation's biggest metropolises, Moscow and Saint Petersburg.
