Hermitage Museum
10 min

Hermitage is one of the largest museums in the world. But it is also the magnificent Royal Palace with stunning rooms and unbelievable views. The collection began as the project of Catherine the Great in 1764. Now it’s the temple of art, where you can see the works of Raphael, Titian, Rembrandt, de Goya and many other prominent painters from all over the world.

St. Isaac's Cathedral
10 min

St. Isaac's Cathedral is dedicated to Peter the Great's favorite saint. It is the biggest cathedral of Russia and ranks among the largest cathedrals of the world. It was built between 1818 and 1858, to be one of the most impressive landmarks of the Russian Imperial capital. It's not only the giant structure but also the collection of the greatest engineering innovations.

Rivers & Canals Boat tour
60 min

By day or by night, the most spectacular view of St. Petersburg can be seen from the water. These are the unforgettable panoramas of the Hermitage, squares, and embankments. St. Petersburg is surrounded by water and interlaced with a complex web of rivers and canals that seem to bind the city together, while also marking the borders of its different districts and neighborhoods.

Metro (subway) Tour
10 min

Go underground and enjoy palaces built for regular people - this is how amazing Subway Stations are in St Petersburg. Chrystal chandeliers, bronze works, marble flooring, amazing sculptures, and mosaics. Why visit another palace? The first stations were opened in 1955, the newest ones open every year, still rich and impressive.

Peter and Paul Fortress & Cathedral
10 min

This fortress, built to deflect Swedish raids, was the city’s very first structure. While the view from the fortress ramparts is fantastic, the main attraction is Trezzini's Peter and Paul Cathedral. Almost all Romanovs including Nicholas II, are buried here. There are several other museums scattered around the fortress grounds, like the political prison museum or St. Petersburg history exhibition and you can buy a special day ticket which enables access to all.

Church on the Spilled Blood
10 min

The symbol of Saint Petersburg - onion-domed cathedral that stands out from the neo-classical surroundings of the city-center. The church is decorated with lots of mosaics inside and outside, the domes are covered with colorful enamels. The church was built on the very place where Tsar Alexander II was mortally wounded in 1881.
