The historic city of St. Petersburg was built in 1709 by Peter the Great . After Moscow it is the second largest city in Russia and the northernmost metropolis in the World. The city by the ocean is often called the Venice of the North because of its many canals and bridges. Some of them open up at night, which is celebrated by the Russians and a cool tourist attraction. The majestic flair of this city is truly unequalled. The famous Winter Palace, Petergof and the Catherine Palace are only one of the most renowned buildings whose architecture will undoubtedly amaze you.

And if you really want to spice up the options, then a Saint Petersburg Food Tour or Vodka Tasting Tour would be a great hit! Not only is it a unique way to explore the city, participants also get to enjoy samplings of typical Russian cuisine like for example Pelmeni, Borschtsch or Blini.
