Nevsky Prospect is renowned as St. Petersburg’s most prestigious street stretching from Admiralty to Alexander Nevsky Monastery and cemetery. It was originally designed as the start of the highway to Novgorod Veliky, but soon became the hub of polite society. Did you know such famous writers and composers as Gogol, Dostoevsky and Tchaikovsky once inhabited Nevsky Prospect? It is well worth spending time strolling the length of the prospect, not forgetting to look up at the neo-classical and art deco architecture. There are no shortage of grand cafes and bars to break your preamble. Architectural highlights include Kazan Cathedral, Dom Knigi [House of books], Gostiny Dvor department store, the Monument to Catherine the Great and the powerful statues on Anichkov Bridge.

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.

All our St Petersburg city break prices include three nights accommodation with breakfast, return flights in economy class and all airport taxes.
