St Petersburg City Winter Break

4 Day Tour, from £545 per person

Staying in St Petersburg during the winter is like stepping into a Russian classic novel with locals all wrapped up in fur coats  supporting beautiful ushankas (those hats with the ear flaps!), ice flows gliding along the River Neva and grand palaces covered with a sprinkling of snow. Explore famous sites such as Peterhof and St Catherine's Palaces without the hordes of tourists that visit during summer months. Join the Russians for an evening performance of ballet at the brightly lit Mariinsky and see the imposing statue of Peter the Great rearing on his horse above the bare trees covered with a mantle of snow around his shoulders.
