Tours to Saint-Petersburg (Russia)
Your trip to St. Petersburg - a unique experience in an amazing city that has much to offer. Thanks to a varied climate and seasonal changes, St. Petersburg is never the same. In summer, you can stroll through beautiful, fragrant gardens or walk along the many rivers and canals, which have given St. Petersburg its well-known name – the Venice of the North. In summer, you can view its impressive bridges raising, and from May to June – the White Nights, a unique natural phenomenon. In autumn, it’s a great time for walking in picturesque parks as the trees don their vibrant hues. A trip to St. Petersburg in December, January or February will plunge you into a winter wonderland: experience lovely snow falls, see the frozen waters of the Neva and the Gulf of Finland, take a ride on a Russian troika through the parks, go skating in one of the many ice rinks, visit an exhibition of ice sculptures, etc.Read more
Millions of tourists spend their holidays in St. Petersburg. They come to admire its amazing architecture, the sumptuous residences of the Russian tsars and the magnificent cathedrals, and to learn about Russia’s rich history and culture. St. Petersburg has more than 200 museums and many rare and priceless art collections. It would take you several years to see all the exhibits in the Hermitage. Despite the fact that the city is relatively young (it was founded in 1703), it has an impressive history. It used to be the capital of the powerful Russian Empire, went through three revolutions that led to the birth of the USSR, and survived World War 2. Today, it’s one of the most attractive and influential cities in Russia.

Imperial Palaces and Parks
It’s impossible to imagine a trip to Saint Petersburg without visiting the luxurious royal residences. In summer - green gardens and more than a hundred fountains in Peterhof, located on the shores of the Gulf of Finland, picturesque parks in Tsarskoye Selo and Pavlovsk. If you have chosen a winter tour, you’re bound to enjoy a walk in one of the many snowy parks. This is also the ideal time to visit the palaces, when tourist flow decreases.

Christmas and New Year Tours
Did you know that New Year’s is celebrated much more widely in Russia than in Europe? Russians love this holiday so much that they even celebrate it twice: on January 1st and 14th (“the Old New Year”). The city is especially beautiful during this period: the streets and squares are decorated for the holidays, Christmas fairs and concerts are held throughout the city, and there’s usually lots and lots of snow. A Christmas and New Year tour is also a great opportunity to enjoy different winter activities, such as ice skating, skiing, sledding.
