Tourist Places In St Petersburg

For travelers and wanderers, a visit to Russia is not just any vacation – it is nothing short of an odyssey. And for those who are aware of the past of this great country, St Petersburg is as important as the capital Moscow. St Petersburg, named after its founder Peter the Great, was once the majestic capital of the imperial Tsar regime. Under House Romanov and their royal patronage, the city prospered into a medieval paradise. Even after all the revolutions, wars and sieges that followed, St Petersburg has till date held on to its magic.

White Night Festivals

The White Night Festivals are the one-of-its-kind celebration in St Petersburg of its 24-hours sunshine days. Being located too close to the arctic circle, from May to July the St Petersburg experiences this phenomenon where a muted white light lingers on much after the sun has disappeared from the sky and darkness only falls at around midnight for an hour or two. Classical opera, ballet, and music at the Mariinsky Theatre – another important place of interest in St Petersburg – are important parts of the White Nights Festival. Being able to witness this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

River and canal cruises

Neva River is the waterline that runs from Lake Ladoga in the east straight through St Petersburg to the Gulf of Finland in the west, forming many canals through the city. They serve as the veins and arteries where you can enjoy pleasant afternoon St Petersburg cruise rides. The bank of the river itself is a great sight to behold. Some of the most important buildings are located by Neva – Hermitage Museum and Winter Palace, Summer Garden and the Split of the Vasilievsky Island.

Here are some of the best places to visit in St Petersburg, Russia.

1. Hermitage Museum

This colossal museum located on the banks of Neva River is the foremost of St Petersburg attractions. Spread across a complex of 6 buildings, including the royal residence Winter Palace, this museum has the second largest collection of art and antiques in the world. Established in 1764 by Catherine the Great with her personal collections, the museum covers epochs like the Renaissance, Impressionism, and post-Impressionism, neo-classical, modern and right down to a contemporary art. From Rembrandt and Raphael to Picasso and Van Gogh – the art enthusiast in you will not leave this museum unsatisfied.

2. Church on the Saviour of Spilled Blood

The name of this church is a direct reference to the assassination of Tsar Alexander II – the classical Russian structure with a fiesta of colours on its façade stands exactly where his blood was spilled. Inside, one can see one of the largest and most detailed collections of mosaics in the world.

3. Peterhof Palace

Established under the order of the city’s founder Peter the Great, the series of palaces and gardens called Peterhof are a beautiful addition to the St Petersburg tourist attractions. This place is sometimes referred to as the Russian Versailles.

4. St Isaac’s Cathedral

The golden dome of St Isaac’s is an iconic tourist attraction of St Petersburg, Russia. It is the largest Orthodox basilica in the world, demonstrating a striking Russian-Byzantine architecture style. Today it is a museum at large, with beautiful works of arts displayed inside. At the end of a 300-steps climb of the colonnade, one can get the most spectacular view of the entire city of St Petersburg.

5. Palace Square

St Petersburg sightseeing is incomplete without experiencing life at the Palace Square. A counterpart of Moscow’s legendary Red Square, this is St Petersburg’s favourite public place. All the major national festivals and events take place here, and one can also find the most popular stores and restaurants around the square area to enjoy an evening of leisure.

    Namita's 10 days trip to St Petersburg

    Few tips to take care while planning a trip to travel agent: 1. Check all the hotels as I got the first hotel changed and was better then the other two. 2. Check on the luggage as how much one is allowed to carry as should have been told by the travel agents if the flight inside the country will be domestic and luggage will be a problem. Had to pay 2700 rubbles extra. Then cabs booked for excursion we paid 300 rubbles for the parking which should be borne by the agents. The agents arranged the timely cabs for pick and drop. Rest all the other things has to be managed self.. I felt that arranging the trips are far better than doing through the agents.. Saint Petersburg was one of the best place to see in the entire Russia..

    Priyanka's 7 days trip to St Petersburg

    Overall it was a good trip. Due to language issue, we were not able to interact much with Cab drivers in Moscow. Also traffic in Moscow is really bad, which was one of the pain points for us. Stay in petersburg was a memorable one. The cab driver was a Pakistani so no language issue. Though the hotel was small, but hotel staff was very friendly and cooperative. Stay in Petersburg will always be in our good books (from cab driver to hotel staff and food).

    Gadi Ramakrishna

    Gadi's 6 days trip to St Petersburg

    The hotels selected in St. Petersburg needs to be changed.its in the centre of city, but has no elevator & rooms are on the 4 th floor.real inconvenience to tourists. The overall package value is a little high when compared to the places of visit proposed, couls have more additional fight seeing trips. indian food could have been organised / complimented atleast for one day in both the cities. Night cruise on Moscow river.

    FAQ's of St Petersburg

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    The summer months are the ideal ones to visit St Petersburg. From May to August, the temperature stays comfortable and warm enough.

    St Petersburg used to be the royal capital during the Tsar regime. Later during World War II, the city was under a 900-day blockade, famously known as the Siege of Leningrad.

    From mid-June to July, St Petersburg experiences nights with a strange white light lingering long after the sun sets, which gave birth to the moniker White Nights. The last ten days of June is celebrated as the White Nights Festival, with lots of dance, music, theatre, and opera.

    There are frequent flights of 1.5 hours duration between the cities. However, the train is often the more preferred mode. Sapsan train is a comfortable and convenient one, while Grand Express or Red Arrow is there if you want luxury trains.

    St Petersburg winters are cold and freezing throughout. January is the coldest month with an average minimum temperature of -11°C.
