What to Expect
One of the world’s most magnificent cities, St. Petersburg stretches over forty four islands. The city was built by Peter the Great in the 18th century to rival the splendor of Paris and has a wealth of palaces, churches, and museums. A full day of sightseeing includes a general sightseeing tour of the city along with visits to the Hermitage, the world famous art treasury, the Peter and Paul Fortress, the place where the city got its start, and the Church of our Savior on Spilled Blood, one of the city’s landmarks. There will also be several photo stops and time for shopping.

The Hermitage – The Tsar’s former Winter Palace and four other buildings that house one of the world’s premier art collections. In your two-hour guided tour visit you'll see display rooms with masterpieces by Da Vinci, Rafael, Monet, Rembrandt, and Renoir. Designed by Rastrelli, the Baroque Winter Palace boasts patterned parquet floors, ornate staircases, and molded and decorated ceilings.

Peter and Paul Fortress – Originally built to protect the city from Swedish attack, the fortress soon became Russia’s Tower of London, a place for political prisoners, including Peter the Great’s own son.

The Peter and Paul Cathedral – The city’s tallest structure in the days of Peter the Great. Only the television tower exceeds it in height today. The ornate interior boasts gilded iconostasis, 18th century paintings, icons, and the tombs of many Tsars and Tsarinas, including Peter the Great and Catherine the Great.

The Church on Spilled Blood was built on the spot where the Emperor was mortally wounded. The interior of the Church is decorated with incredibly detailed mosaics designed and created by the most prominent Russian artists of the day.
