Russia St Petersburg. Founded by Tsar Peter the Great, in the early 1700s.

One will never forget a visit to St Petersburg it has so much splendor from the times of the Tsars.

Built beside the Neva River, you will see amazing sights in the city itself. But one should also visit Peterhof Palace and Pushkin.

One could spend a week seeing St Petersburg ... so if its just a couple of days be organised.

Any suggestions on St Petersburg ... things to see

Getting Around St Perersburg

Air: International airport in St. Petersburg Russia is called Pulkovo 2 . 17 km on the south of the city.

Transfers to hotels: We would suggest you arrange these via the hotel or on the internet prior to departure.

Cruises: These dock a little out of town and without a visa one can not leave the ship or port. Some smaller ships dock closer to town.

If one has a visa and visits downtown at night, take care, as I understand a bridge between the town and port is closed at certain times of the night.
