After all Saint Petersburg is known as the Venice of the North or the Northern Capital. The port of the Baltic Sea was founded by Tsar Peter in 1703 and named by the Saint Peter’s Apostle.
In the course of its history, was called Petrograd and Leningrad but locals are nowadays calling it Pityer.
With more than five million inhabitants it is Russia’s second largest city and for the past 200 years, it was the country’s cultural and political center.
St. Petersburg is situated on 42 islands in the estuary of a small, but high-flowing river called Néva. From 1712 to 1917 was the capital of the Russian Empire.
The first thing to think about is the city’s buildings: they are colorful. The second thing that is decorative, the third one is that is huge. You will feel the most when you arrive in the Palace Square and you get to the Winter Palace. With its 1500 rooms, 2000 windows, a 250-meter façade … I will not go further.
Must see: the Catherine Palace, the Péter-Paul Fort, cathedrals, museums, monasteries.
If you want to explore the city by foot, expect a to make a major tour, as this is a huge city, but in the summertime, you can experience the White Night phenomenon throughout the night, when the daylight does not go away thanks to the geolocation of the city.
Thanks to the northwestern location of the city, it is easy to reach from Europe and mainly Scandinavian countries by plane, bus, train or boat.
I wish everybody enjoyable city discovery and good support!
