The former capital of Russia is nowadays known for the greatest art museum in Russia, the Hermitage. Since the city is located along the Newa river, it is recommended to enjoy a city tour by boat on the river. You will also get a nice view of the city if you arrive by ferry or cruise ship. The city’s rich history has created splendid buildings that are unique and attract numerous amounts of people to visit. Along the Newi-boulevard, St. Petersburg’s longest street, you can explore the most beautiful sights the city has to offer. Many of them are UNESCO World Heritages, such as the Grand Palace and Park in Peterhof, where the tsarist family partly used to live. You should also not miss a short drive to Puschkin, a little town outside of St.Petersburg, where beautiful Catherine Palace with its famous Amber room awaits you. St. Petersburg is also known for its splendid cathedrals. Saint Isaac’s cathedral, Smolny cathedral, the church of resurrection, and much more beauties are paradise for photographers.
