Information About St. Petersburg

St. Petersburgh

Often said to be Russia’s most Western city, St. Petersburg has a distinctive, old-world charm that distinguishes it from its rival, Moscow.

Much of the older architecture has been preserved, with many fine Baroque and neo-classical buildings, as well as a beautiful array of waterways and bridges.

Famous for centuries for its arts and literature, St. Petersburg is a cultural capital in its own right.

The most famous landmark in St. Petersburg is probably the Winter Palace and the city is also home to one of the world’s greatest Art Museums – The Hermitage.
