Plan of St Petersburg, 1771. (Plate 29 from John Andrews, Plans of the Principal Cities in the World, London, 1771.)
“I love you, Peter’s great creation,
I love your view of stern and grace,
The Neva wave’s regal procession,
The grayish granite – her bank’s dress…”
Aleksandr Pushkin The Bronze Horseman
A Petersburg Story 1833
Established some 300 years ago by Peter the Great, St. Petersburg probably ranks among the most visually appealing cities in Europe. Almost any building in the central core for example can be considered as a tourist attraction. More information
Theatre and live music hold a special place in the hearts of Petersburgers, and the city is justifiably proud of its rich theatrical traditions — its world famous school of ballet, its ground-breaking innovations in drama, and the magnificent 19th century buildings that house its most famous theatres.

One of the world’s most beautiful cities, Saint Petersburg is often referred to as an ‘open-air museum’, with so much artistry and history contained in its architecture alone.More information
St. Petersburg is one of the most breathtakingly beautiful places on earth and virtually any building in the large historic centre, threaded with canals dotted with baroque bridges, can be considered an attraction. This is a magical city, with a long list of major attractions.
Its Hermitage Museum, housed in the Winter Palace of the Romanov Dynasty, is both one of the world’s greatest and oldest collections of art, treasure, and antiquities, and one of its most beautiful buildings.
Situated in a swampy river delta subject to deep winter freezes, hot and humid summers, and periodic flooding in the autumn, the city started life as a rough and ready military outpost but grew rapidly.
Over the course of the eighteenth century, the city center began to assume the architectural face it presents to the world today, as the baroque extravagances of Empress Elizabeth gradually gave way to the neoclassical style favored by Catherine the Great.
Intended by the indomitable Peter the Great as Russia’s “window to Europe,” St. Petersburg (named in honor of the Tsar’s patron saint, the Apostle Peter) quickly outshone Moscow to become the political, economic, and cultural center of the Russian Empire.
