This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Peter and Paul Fortress, Petropavlovskaya Fortress, 3, St. Petersburg 197022 Russia

You will see all the main sights, which made the city a museum under the open sky: main street - Nevsky Prospect with its historical buildings, Kazan Cathedral, Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, Saint Michael's Castle, Winter Palace where Hermitage is situated and Palace Square, St. Isaac’s Cathedral and Bronze Horseman, Admiralty, Spit of Vasilyevsky (Basil) Island with wonderful view on Neva river, Peter and Paul Fortress, Summer Garden, Smolny Cathedral and other great sights.

Stop At: Moika Embankment, St. Petersburg Russia

St. Petersburg has more than 70 rivers and canals winding through the city with around 400 bridges crossing them. A new perspective on the city can be gained from water level as boat trips can visit areas of the city which might not be reached by ground. From the outset, the city was built on water, on numerous islands in the delta of the Neva River. The combination of fascinating architecture along the waterways in St.Petersburg, as it does in Venice, has a special charm. The looming silhouettes of the bridges, the grandeur of the canals, the granite embankments with their various piers and slipways, the 18th and 19th century palaces and parks on the banks of the Neva, and architectural landmarks in the form of the domes and spires of churches and cathedrals visible from afar all contribute to the unique appearance of the "Venice of the North," one of the world's most beautiful cities.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: The State Hermitage Museum, Palace Square, 2, St. Petersburg 191055 Russia

The State Hermitage Museum is one of the greatest and largest museum in the world. According to legend, 11 years aren’t enough to see all exhibits if you spend 1 minute in front of each. That’s not surprising as while as there are millions of masterpieces of art in the museum. It offers a great variety of collections from Classical Antiquities to Modern Art.
