This will be my first time traveling to SPb. I have purchased a trip for the last weekend in April.
I assume the weather will be cool but wanted to avoid the tourist rush in Summer and rate increases that happen in May.
I will be in SPb for 4 days staying at the Helvetia Hotel.
Is Peterhof open this time of year? Also, would not mind suggestions on places to visit for fun in the evenings for a single American male with limited Russian. Don' t mind the nightclub scene but not the best dancer in the world. :)
During the day planning on hitting the important landmarks and museums. Is it worth buying a package tour with guide or venturing out on my own?
Any tips, tricks, suggestions would be welcome.
Also open to meeting any other travelers who may be there the same time.
Thanks in advance. :)
