Built on a desolate swamp as a showcase capital of Imperial Russia, this grand city has certainly lived up to the expectations of its founder, Tsar Peter the Great.
Pack the 9th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Divo Ostrov. And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at State Hermitage Museum and Winter Palace, ponder the design of Church housing the Grand Palace, admire the natural beauty at Park And Gardens of Peterhof, and pause for some serene contemplation at Peter and Paul Fortress (Petropavlovskaya Krepost).
