St. Petersburg

Overview

Peter the Great built his Baltic city to drag Russia into the modern age. Today, St.Petersburg remains Russia’s window to the West and you can feel the energy of change as well as the sense of history on the streets. It is a city of stunning vistas and grand buildings. The breathtaking Hermitage, the old Winter Palace, is one of the world’s great art museums and is one of many examples of the wealth and opulence of the Romanov Empire. The Kirker Concierge can arrange excellent private excursions with English speaking guides to the Hermitage and to the three sumptuous palaces built for members of the Imperial Family; Pavlovsk, the Catherine Palace at Pushkin which is a Baroque masterpiece and the Alexander Palace. After such a cultural feast, relax with an iced vodka and caviar before heading off to the Mariinsky for a sublime evening of ballet.
