About the city
It is no exaggeration to say that St. Petersburg is one of the most beautiful and unusual cities in the world. Designed by Italian architects and built by the Germans on the northern marshes, St. Petersburg was founded under the impulse of Peter the Great who wanted to move away from Russian customs and open a window to Europe. Therefore, the city is an incredible combination of European appearance and the Russian spirit.

Despite being a rather young city, the residence of the Russian tsars boasts an eventful history and an extraordinary architectural heritage. Imperial city, theater of two revolutions, protagonist of a long siege, marked by the communist domination, inspiring muse for writers, Saint Petersburg is one of the most fascinating cities in Europe.

Due to the extremely northern location, the city is quite cold and gray, but this is offset by the beauty of the sky, which often surprises its spectator with the most unexpected colors. In the period from late spring to early summer, the city is painted with the particularly unusual light of the night sun. The white nights themselves are one of the main attractions of St. Petersburg. If you happen to arrive in the city in this magical period, you'll have the possibility to watch the bridges opening from the water during a boat trip, meeting the dawn at 4 am.

St. Petersburg is also called the "Venice of the North" because it is built on the 42 islands of the delta of the Neva river and boasts 69 rivers and canals that are intertwined in the city center. Thanks to more than 300 bridges, 18 of which can be raised. Saint Petersburg is considered a real "bridge museum". This unusual amusement of the raising bridges for tourists means for all inhabitants who live on the other side of the river that at about midnight they have to face one the most typical dilemmas of St. Petersburg: either return at home to the other side of the river or to wait for the bridge to close, usually after five in the morning.

Peter and Paul Fortress
The oldest part of the city is represented by the Peter and Paul Fortress which is based on the small island on the Petrogradskaya side. In fact the fortress had never got a chance to actually realize its legitimate purpose to protect the city. After the construction, the Peter and Paul Fortress was used as a political prison. Among the famous prisoners were Dostoevsky, Chernyshevsky, Trotsky and the Decembrists. If you go there for a walk, be sure to climb the wall of the fortress to enjoy the Panorama of the Neva.

In the middle of the fortress stands the imposing Peter and Paul Cathedral, the burial-place of all the Russian emperors and empresses, from Peter the Great to Alexander III. The cathedral used to be the tallest building in the city. The spire is 404 meters high and on its top there is a magnificent golden angel holding a cross.

From the Gorkovskaya metro station, walk through the Alexandrovsky Park and you will find the entrance to the Peter and Paul Fortress.
Palace Square
The Palace square, which has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, is one of the most important places in St. Petersburg. Majestic, architecturally perfect square, with the Admiralty on the right and the Moyka canal on the left and the column of Alexander placed in the center, has always played a very important role in the history of Russia. Among its historic buildings, monuments and museums there is the wonderful Winter Palace, former imperial residence, which today houses collections of the Hermitage Museum including such important works as those of Leonardo da Vinci, Tiziano and Rembrandt.

How to get there:
To reach the Palace Square, exit at the Admiralty metro station and take the Malaya Morskaya street which will take you directly to the square.
Nevsky Prospect
Nevsky Prospect is the main street of St. Petersburg that connects the Monastery of Aleksandr Nevsky to the Admiralty Palace. The long and wide avenue that runs through the city for 4 kilometers. Numerous are the buildings and monuments that you can find on Nevsky Prospect. Crossing the Griboedov canal, on your right you will see the most important religious building along Nevsky Prospect - the Kazan Cathedral, a church built in the neoclassical style on the model of St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City. At the corner of the Fontanka river, there is the Anichkov Palace, an imperial palace that takes its name from the nearby bridge, which was designed for Queen Elizabeth I in the Baroque style.

Continuing your promenade along Nevsky Prospect, you will arrive at Vosstaniya Square, in the center of which stands an important obelisk symbolizing the end of the siege of Leningrad (the old name of St. Petersburg) during the World War II, which kept the city for two and a half years. There you can also find Moscow Railway Station.

After this square begins so-called Staro-Nevksy, which leads to the Aleksandr Nevsky Monastery, one of the most important lavra in Russia; it is also the oldest monastery in St. Petersburg.

line 4, which stops at Ploshchad Aleksandra Nevskogo and connects with Line 3 (stop Ploshchad Aleksandra Nevskogo).
Summer Garden
One of the most beautiful parks in the center of St. Petersburg is the Summer Garden, ideal for a walk and a relaxing day. The Summer Garden, frequented by both tourists and the inhabitants of St. Petersburg, is located on the left bank of the Neva, was created in 1704 and covers almost twelve hectares. The garden, embellished with Italian marble statues, was conceived and designed by Pietro the Great in 1704 (one year after the foundation of the city) as a French garden but was turned into lawn in 1824. There are 3 parallel avenues leading to the Neva that outlines the park. Inside the park there is also the Summer Palace, one of the oldest building in St. Petersburg built by Domenico Trezzini for Peter the Great.

How to Get There:
The Summer Garden is located next to the Field of Mars and St. Michael's Castle. To get there, take the metro to Gostiny Dvor station, cross Nevsky Prospekt and head up Sadovaya Ulitsa until you get to St. Michael's Castle. One of the two entrances to the Summer Garden is located just behind the Castle, across the canal.
Church of the Savior on Blood
Not far from the Summer garden there is another important feature – the Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ also known as the Church of the Savior on the Spilled Blood. The Cathedral was built by Emperor Alexander III in memory of his father Alexander II. The blood that echoes in the name used by the Russians derives from the fact that Tsar Alexander II was mortally wounded in an attack carried out on March 1, 1881 on the exact place where the cathedral stands. Alexander II had been a liberal tsar: he had abolished slavery, organized reforms, decentralized power and introduced military service for all.

The structure of the Cathedral was designed and built in the neo-Russian style, in open contrast with the baroque and neoclassicism that distinguishes the architecture of St. Petersburg. The red brick façade is loaded with decorations: there are dozens of niches and windows surrounded by white marble, surmounted by the typical Russian tympanum in the shape of an inflected arch, in addition to the representation of the Saints in numerous mosaics. The church has over 7 thousand 500 square meters of mosaics, probably more than any other church in the world, and a splendid marble floor.

How to get there:
The nearest metro stations are Nevsky Prospekt or Gostiny Dvor, exit to the Griboedov canal and you will see the church.
Saint Isaac's Cathedral
Saint Isaac's Cathedral is another important place to visit in Saint Petersburg. Its construction (or rather, the total reconstruction of a previous church) lasted 40 years (from 1818 to 1858) and was entrusted to the French architect Auguste Ricard de Montferrand who had died before it was completed. After the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow, Saint Isaac's is the most impressive Eastern Orthodox church, and has a wonderful dome, which has one of the largest diameters in the world. From the dome you can enjoy a splendid view of the city and the Gulf of Finland.

How to get there:
The nearest metro station is Sadovaya. Go along Grivtsova Lane, cross the Demidov Bridge over the Griboedov Canal, and keep going until you reach the Moyka River, then turn to your left. Soon you will see the Siny Bridge. Cross it, go forward and in about two minutes you will arrive at Isaakievskaya Square, right in front of the Cathedral.
