There is a wide choice in the historical centre, from where you can easily reach sights such as the Peter and Paul Fortress, the Kunstkammer and Isaac's Cathedral by public transport.

Vacation in Saint Petersburg

Travelers and Activities

Experience the Tsarist Empire up close and personal

Saint Petersburg is not also called the pearl on the Neva for nothing, because there is a swarm of sights on the spot that tell of the splendour of days long gone. The numerous art and history museums housed in building complexes such as the Hermitage, Petershof Palace and the Peter and Paul Fortress are certainly not missing. Also worth a visit are the Moika Palace, the 19th century Mariinski Theatre and the former tsar's residence Mikhailovsky Castle. The excursion into the history of Russia is rounded off by a visit to the Russian Imperial Battleship Aurora, which was once the starting point for the October Revolution.

Things to know

Best travel time

Although Saint Petersburg has a special charm especially in winter, the main travel season is between the end of May and the beginning of September. Then up to nine hours of sunshine and an average temperature of up to 21 degrees Celsius attract you to sightseeing. Those who still want to book their apartment for the winter months should at least pack warm clothes.

Saint Petersburg was built on countless wooden piles that were rammed into the swampy ground in the 17th century.

Top 3 travel tips

1. Experience the "white nights

The city is famous for its warm summer nights, during which half of St. Petersburg seems to be on the streets and promenades late into the night. Especially spectacular is the pulling up of the Newabücken around half past 2 o'clock at night. But beware, if you watch the play from the "wrong" side, you may not come back to your accommodation for 2-3 hours.

2. Immerse yourself in the Russian cuisine

You will quickly notice that Russian cuisine is much better than its reputation in the city's excellent restaurants. You should definitely try the "Bef Stroganow" and the stuffed chicken filet (Kotlet po-kiewski).

3. Take a trip to the Pushkin Tsar's residence

Those who do not have enough of the tsarist splendour after exploring the city will visit the tsar's residence Pushkin at the gates of the city. After all, you can expect other magnificent buildings such as the Alexander Palace.
