Walk the streets of the magnificent city of St. Petersburg, where once the Tsars of Russia held dominion over the country. Start your tour in the opulent Winter Palace, now home to the Hermitage Museum, one of the world’s finest institutions for art and antiquities and then amble across the manicured Field of Mars – one of the city’s prettiest parks. Make time for the State Russian Museum too, which is home to the most extensive collection of Russian art spanning from 19th-century paintings to modernist pieces. If you love history, head outside the city to the Peterhof Palace and Tsarskoye Selo, vast palaces that previously served as retreats for the Russian royal family. If you prefer the performing arts, catch a show at Mariinsky Theatre which hosts classical concerts and you can see world-famous Russian ballerinas. Hop on a luxury canal cruise to experience St. Petersburg many famed palaces, churches, and theatres. From the deck of your ship, you'll see the fantastic Bronze Horseman, an iconic monument that overlooks the Reka Neva and is indivisible from the fabric of the city. If you’d rather stay on land, then go to the Strelka on Vasilevsky Island, a spit that affords you fantastic views of some of the best attractions in St. Petersburg.
