ruSt. Petersburg, Russia

Inspired by the grandeur of European architecture during his travels, Russia's legendary emperor, Peter the Great, laid the first bricks of what later became Russia's breathtaking second capital a little over 300 years ago. With an appearance untypical of Russia, to this day, grand cathedrals, ornate gardens, lush palaces and royal venues, designed by the greatest European architects of the time, line the many canals of the city, all resulting in the most romantic destination in Russia that's often called "The Venice of the North". No visit to St. Petersburg would be complete without time spent in the Peter and Paul Fortress, an exploration of the glorious Hermitage and Faberge museums, a climb up to the St. Isaac's Cathedral or a visit to the colorful Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood. And for an even more spellbinding experience, make sure to save some time for the residences of the Russian Tsars, including stunning Peterhof and the brilliant Catherine's Palace....
