Founded by Peter the Great in 1703, this mesmerising water city is often referred to as the Venice of the North. And for good reason – the city is filled with well preserved examples of stunning baroque architecture and strikingly beautiful bridges that arch over its many canals.

St. Petersburg is a prime travel destination for lovers of the arts and antiquities, culture vultures and historians, and fun-loving festivalgoers. In fact, the all-round sensory experience that Russia’s second largest city provides is incredibly hard to top.
