St Petersburg Highlights: 

THE HERMITAGE

hermitageLose yourself amongst the treasures of one of Russia’s best known sights and arguably the largest collection of fine art in the world. Masterpieces from artists such as Da Vinci, Rembrandt and Kandinsky make the Hermitage an unforgettable visit. 
THE CATHERINE PALACE & THE AMBER ROOM
amber room catherine palaceIn the quaint village of Pushkin, on the outskirts of St Petersburg, lies one of the most impressive and iconic buildings in Russia; Catherine’s Palace. The pastel exterior is flamboyantly embellished with gold accents and the interior is far from modestly decorated! The palace is home to the famous Amber Room with its mysterious past which our guides will tell you all about. The residence was destroyed in World War II and has been under construction ever since.
THE MARIINSKY THEATRE

mariinskyThe Mariinsky Theatre is a historic theatre of opera and ballet in Saint Petersburg. For more than two centuries the Mariinsky Theatre has been presenting the world with a plethora of great artistes, such as Fyodor Chaliapin, Anna Pavlova, Rudolf Nureyev, Mikhail Baryshnikov and many more. 

Please get in touch with our Destination Experts to order tickets for one of its illustrious ballet and opera performances.

THE PETERHOF
peterhofKnown as the “Russian Versailles”, Peterhof Palace and Park is a must see at any time of the year. Famous for its myriad of fountains, the grounds of the palace become a haven for tourists in the peak summer months. Look out for the ‘Joke Fountains’ – if you step on the wrong paving stone, you will get wet! If you’re not travelling in the summer, never fear; the parks foliage is beautiful in the autumn and the grounds transform into a striking crystallised wonderland during winter months so there’s never a wrong time to visit.
THE PETER & PAUL FORTRESS
peter and paul fortressThe first structure to be built in St. Petersburg, and thus the birthplace of the city, it never served its intended defencive function. Instead it has had a rich, hugely varied, and sometimes sinister history as a military base, a home of government departments, the burial ground of the Russian Imperial family, the site of groundbreaking scientific experiments, and a forbidding jail that held some of Russia's most prominent political prisoners.
