Saint Petersburg, also known as Piter to the locals, is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. This Russian hub has all the ingredients for an extraordinary vacation - extravagant architecture, remarkable history, vibrant nightlife. It is all there in one place.
St Petersburg is a epic for past European revolutions and intrigue. Indeed, it is Russia’s window on Europe, experiencing much in the past 350 years, and today, its historical narrative and majesty is still evident in its streets, parks, bars and galleries.
Known as the unofficial cultural capital of Russia, St. Petersburg is made up of 42 islands, connected by the city’s 342 bridges, across the Neva River and it is considered an offbeat destination by many.
