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.
You've added Faberge Museum, Catherine Palace and Park, Kazan Cathedral, and other attractions to your itinerary. And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at The State Hermitage Museum, see the interesting displays at Saint Isaac's Cathedral, take an in-depth tour of Peter and Paul Fortress, and admire the landmark architecture of Grand Peterhof Palace.

For reviews, photos, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the St. Petersburg trip planner.
