➤Late arrival St Petersburg, welcome to Russia
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.
Your driver will be waiting at the airport/train station to take you to the cozy hotel in the downtown.
Take a walking tour in Helsinki to see the city's major highlights. After later lunch (own expenses), we head to Russia.
