Tsars and tsarinas, horses and chariots, beautiful buildings and playgrounds will delight visitors.
Culture and architecture
One of the world’s most celebrated museums that even people who haven’t been to the city associate with St. Petersburg – the building appears in nearly every history textbook and has been used in numerous films. When you visit the Hermitage, budget enough time as it really is big, holding more than three million display items.
Book a guided tour as this will give you an overview of the most important exhibit items and their history and significance.
Letniy Sad (Summer Garden)
A beautiful and grandiose park, with many flowers, trees, shrubs and various sculptures, too. Strolling here makes it seem you’ve gone several hundred years back in time, where the maidens are wearing fancy ballroom gowns and the young men in coats and tails. Peter the Great’s ornate, grand summer palace stands in the Summer Garden.
Food, drink and nightlife
St. Petersburg has various dining options, from pricy luxury restaurants to affordable café and bistros. The good restaurants tend to be dear, so put aside some money before your trip so you can enjoy the experience properly. The most highly regarded and most frequented restaurants are Teplo, Severyanin, Russky Dvor and Chekhov.
St. Petersburg is a real shopper’s paradise, because Estonia’s eastern neighbours make sure all the bases are covered: from small boutiques that offer only the finest, and big department stores that really deserve several days of your time.
The biggest and best-known shopping centres are the Nevsky Department Store, right on the city’s central street. Another famous department store is the biggest one, located right in the heart of the city – Galeria, with several hundred shops, restaurants and other services such as beauty and recreational activities.
The city also has buses, trolleybuses, trams and water taxis as well as the marsrutki, the minibuses familiar to Estonians as well. But walking or taxi cabs are better ways to cover shorter distances. That will save you valuable time.
