Founded by the Tsar Peter the Great on 27 May 1703, St Petersburg was planned and built as the capital of newly emerged Russian Empire. Today, it is arguably one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Immerse yourself deep into rich Russian history, art and culture, Russian Revolution & Romanov Imperial legacy. The White Nights, luminous northern midsummer eves, are the summer weeks when St. Petersburg is sparkling like good champagne. Russia’s imperial capital... Scattered along the graceful canals are stately buildings, cobblestone streets, and a lively spirit that only comes from starting one of the biggest revolutions in history.

As one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you won’t be short of things to do. Enjoy a relaxing transfer to your hotel, and be sure to get a good night’s rest in preparation for our jam-packed St. Petersburg experience.

We suggest to visit one of famous rooftop restaurants in the evening and enjoy with gorgeous Russian cuisine and amazing views.

Rossi Street imageRossi Street

Architect Rossi Street is the most symmetrical in St. Petersburg. Italian Carlo Rossi left important heritage here in St Petersburg: he reshaped Palace Square, constructed Senate building, Mikhaylovsky palace estates at Elagin island, just to name a few. Russia has honored the master and immortalized his name on the city's map. The street stretches from the Alexandrinsky Theater to Lomonosov Square. Go, if you like classical art: it corresponds to ancient canons. Its width is equal to the height of the buildings on it - 22 meters, and the length is exactly ten times larger - 220 meters. Five buildings are built according to a single project, and it seems that the street consists of only two houses, one on each side. Walk the full length of the street and turn around to evaluate the proportions.
