St Petersburg :

St Petersburg is Russia’s grand imperial former capital and yet its inhabitants are famous for being much more relaxed than in the current capital Moscow. The city offers elegant canals and bridges in the city, pristine beaches, and an almost unrivalled treasure trove of art and culture. You can spend days in the Hermitage, seeing everything from Egyptian mummies to Picassos. Evenings offer world-class ballet, opera and classical concerts at the illustrious performance halls. Performing arts festivals pack out concert halls during the summer’s White Nights, when the northern sun barely dips below the horizon. But don’t be deceived. Every season has its own special celebrations and fine dining, world-class ballet and opera, and cafe culture are all part of the Petersburg way of life. The winter skies may be grey and the ground covered in snow, but the culture still dazzles and delight
