A few words about St Petersburg

St Petersburg is the second largest Russian city with a population of over five million people.
It is the largest northern city on the planet.
Saint-Petersburg, the former capital of the Russian Empire, has many splendid architectural treasures, theatres, art museums, and of course the world famous Hermitage. Every year thousands of people visit this amazing city to get closer to great Russian history and culture.
It is often called Venice of the North, because it lies on 44 islands divided by a network of 86 rivers and canals.
In September you can enjoy the splendid landscapes of the famous suburbs, where the residences of the Russian tsars are located, colored by the trees turned to gold, as well as numerous fountains still operating both in the historical city center and in well-known Petrodvorets.
