St Petersburg

Often nicknamed 'the Venice of the North'.

The canals and waterways of St Petersburg make it one of the most pleasant cities of Eastern Europe, and therefore often nicknamed ‘the Venice of the North’.The Neva River is an essential ingredient to St Petersburg’s charm, and runs right through the city. It was once intended to be ‘the main street of the city’. The Neva is completely frozen during winter making it unnavigable by ship. There are a couple of attractions in St Petersburg that are a must for any visitor. These include the Hermitage, one of the largest museums in the world hosting an impressive European art collection, including works by Michelangelo, Rubens, Rembrandt, Picasso and Matisse. Another one of these must see attractions is the Summer Garden founded in 1704 by order of Peter the Great, from whom the city got its name.
