Peter the Great, tsar of all Russia, wanted to give new imulse to the Empire. He fashioned a jewel that could compete with large european cities: Saint Petersburg. It became capital in 1712, and during the reign of Romanov dynasty, it continued to increase its beauty. Dethroned in favor of Moscow by the Soviet Government, St. Petersburg is far from losing its magnificence. Crossed by the Neva and multiple inland waterways, it consists of 42 islands. That's why it's romantically called "Venice of the North." St. Petersburg is more than just a city, it is an open-air museum. The baroque and neoclassicism give it unparalleled beauty. It seems to be made of ​​palaces, imperial residences, museums, theaters, cathedrals, parks ...

Also known for its white nights, St. Petersburg welcomes travelers throughout the year. Discover it and succumb to its charm.
