Discover St. Petersburg as you embark on a panoramic tour to admire the city’s highlights – you will soon see why a visit here is always a rewarding and unforgettable experience.
Your first photo stop will be at St Isaac’s Square, dominated by the majestic St Isaac’s Cathedral with its golden dome. The main square of the city is where you will find the Alexander Column, and on the northern side of the square is the picturesque Winter Palace. Driving across the Neva River you will see the Spit of Vasilievsky Island and the Peter and Paul Fortress; in the centre of the fortress is the Cathedral of St Peter and St Paul with its needle-thin spire. Next, the Church of Our Saviour on Spilled Blood now comes into view - a riot of colour. From here reach the Nevsky Prospekt – St Petersburg’s main thoroughfare - which is lined with palaces, churches and theatrical buildings. Travel past Decembrists’ Square and the graceful statue, the Bronze Horseman, portraying Peter the Great on horseback – a fitting tribute to the founder of the glorious city of St Petersburg.
