Built on a desolate swamp as a showcase capital of Imperial Russia, this grand city has certainly lived up to the expectations of its founder, Tsar Peter the Great.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Winter Palace of Peter I, Catherine Palace and Park, Naval Cathedral of St. Nicholas, and other attractions. There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at The State Hermitage Museum, admire the landmark architecture of Peter and Paul Fortress, take an in-depth tour of Grand Peterhof Palace, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood.
