If the Hermitage and grandeur of St Petersburg gets too much, then discover St Petersburg's Soviet side. There are plenty of other museums and places to visit. We like the Museum of Railway Technology, hidden behind the dilapidated Warsaw (Varshavsky) Station, one of Russia's finest collections of Soviet steam trains, all of which have been lovingly restored by volunteers. A stroll along the platforms is a stroll through Soviet history: see the L-2298 locomotive with Lenin and Stalin on its nose and the SO-2413, with the slogan Onwards towards communism!

Built by order of Peter the Great in 1703, St Petersburg is one of the world’s most romantic cities. Well-known for its rivers and canals, getting around the city by boat is a popular choice; sightseeing cruises whisk visitors to the city’s top attractions, floating restaurants provide a unique experience and river buses serving as public transport beat the city’s downtown traffic. Imperial parks and palaces all offer unique charms so it’s well worth visiting as many as possible.

Peterhof – the city’s most impressive Imperial Estate is world-famous for its spectacular fountains, Pavlovsk is surrounded by stunning landscaped gardens, and the magnificent summer residence of the Russian Tsars, Catherine Palace, home to the recently restored Amber Room, is a highlight not to be missed. Set aside time to explore Peter and Paul Fortress and be sure to visit the incredible State Hermitage Museum which celebrates its 250th anniversary in 2014.

Regent Recommends

For a special occasion, opt to upgrade to the wonderful Grand Hotel Europe on your St Petersburg city break. This incredibly glamorous 5-star hotel is located in the heart of St Petersburg on the city’s major thoroughfare, Nevsky Prospekt. Within walking distance of the Russian Museum, Mikhailovsky Imperial Theatre and Hermitage Museum, the hotel is also a cultural treasure in its own right, with its exquisite neo baroque decor and beautiful stained-glass windows. Dine at one of the five superb hotel bars and restaurants or relax after a busy day sightseeing in the hotel’s luxurious health club and spa.
