St. Petersburg is famous for its history, culture, and landmarks: Cathedrals, imperial residences, museums, and theatres. For the same reasons St. Petersburg is also called “the cultural capital.” The Historic Centre of Saint Petersburg and Related Groups of Monuments constitute a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
One of the best sights of St. Petersburg is the State Hermitage Museum, Russia's largest collection of art. The Hermitage cats (almost a Russian trademark), have resided in the Winter Palace since the time of Empress Elizaveta Petrovna.
Everyone should visit famous Nevsky Prospect. Planned in the early 18th century as part of the main road to Moscow and Novgorod, today Nevsky is one of the city's main tourist destinations.
The most famous attractions of St. Petersburg are undoubtedly its cathedrals and bridges. There are at least five incredible cathedrals in the city and about 800 in St. Petersburg, and 218 are only for pedestrians. The city's very first bridge - Troitsky Most (Trinity Bridge) -was built in 1803, and was originally a temporary pontoon bridge with a horse-drawn rail car that led to the Summer Gardens. It was opened to the public 100 years later in 1903.
