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.

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.
