Explore St Petersburg with Elegant Resorts
The city of culture on the Baltic Sea is a show-stopping, perfectly planned metropolis created by Peter the Great to place Russia firmly on the map.
A treasure trove of art and culture, allow ample time for museums and galleries. The Hermitage on Palace Square showcases over 3-million works of art, with everything from Monet to Mummies. Find fantastic modern art at the Erarta Museum and imperial Easter eggs encrusted with jewels at the Fabergé Museum.
Burrow into the historic centre to elegant plazas lined with Neo-classical and Baroque palaces. Step inside the Peter and Paul Fortress, the ancient citadel and birthplace of the city. For knock-out views of pastel palaces, golden spires and winding canals, climb atop St Isaac’s Cathedral.
Enjoy top-class performing arts at the Mariinsky Theatre and classical concerts at the Shostakovich Philharmonia.
May and June are great times to visit when the sun briefly dips and the city stays up all night with festivals and parties galore. Bathed in an extraordinary glow, these are St Petersburg’s famous ‘White Nights’.
