Winter Weekend Break in St. Petersburg (E-Visa)

Private tour
3 days
1 city
2nights

St. 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....
  • Day By Day

    Day 1: Arrival and City Tour
    Welcome to St.-Petersburg - the Venice of the North! Upon arrival, you are met by your private driver, who transfers you to the hotel for the check-in.

    In the afternoon you meet with your private guide and driver to have a panoramic city tour. Today you witness the most cherished gems of St. Petersburg, including Palace Square and the Hermitage Museum, Nevsky Prospect and many other popular attractions.

    At the end of the tour you have dinner in a local restaurant with traditional Russian cuisine. Here you try not only a delicious meal but also different kinds of vodka or nalivka (berry-based drinks).

    After dinner, you have a transfer to the hotel.

    *Note: recommended arrival time for a comfortable tour on the same day is before 14:00.


    Day 2: Tour of the State Hermitage and Pushkin
    Following breakfast in the hotel, you meet your guide at the hotel lobby and go to the legendary Hermitage Museum.

    They say that if you were to spend three minutes by each of the exhibits in the Hermitage Museum, it would have taken you three years to see the entire exhibition. But don't worry, you have an experienced guide, who will show you the best rooms and halls of the exhibit within several hours.

    In the second part of the day you enjoy lunch and continue the tour to Pushkin (Tsarskoye Selo) to explore the brilliant Catherine's Palace that is a striking example of baroque architecture gifted by Peter the Great to his wife Catherine I. During the tour you walk through the lavish parks and gardens of this outstanding palace and enjoy its gorgeous interiors, including the replica of the world-renowned Amber Room.

    After the tour you return to the hotel.


    Day 3: Departure
    Today is the final day of your exciting winter adventure in Russia. After breakfast, you check out from the hotel and your driver transfers you to the airport for your flight back home.

    We hope you enjoyed your Russian experience and will plan your next trips with Firebird Tours!
