ST. PETERSBURG TOURS

St. Petersburg tours: Peter the First, founder of St. Petersburg St. Petersburg was the capital of Russia for only 200 years but that was the time of Russia's greatest opening to Western culture. Visit St. Petersburg on one of our Russian tours. We also offer a selection of guided St. Petersburg tours that you can book individually or combine to create your own St. Petersburg travel package.

Peter the Great conceived the idea of a regularly planned city with well-defined layout developed to clear designs. It was Peter the Great's intention to move the Relics of Saint Alexander Nevsky from Vladimir City to this monastery to make a memorial that would always remind of the glory of Russian troops.

Petersburg, often referred to as Russia's "window on the west" is the most European of Russian cities and her great museum "Hermitage" holds a collection of Western art second only to the Louvre in Paris.
