The sheer grandeur and history of Russia’s imperial capital never fails to amaze visitors, even those returning multiple times.
Intended from its inception as a display of imperial Russia’s growing status in the world, St Petersburg grew to be the Romanovs’ showcase capital and Russia’s first great, modern city. The city is often compared to Venice because of its many canals, but the similarities don’t stop there: walking around the historic centre will reveal canals lined by Italianate mansions and broken up by striking plazas adorned with baroque and neoclassical palaces.
It’s not all leisure in Saint Petersburg however, the city is a thriving business centre attracting many Fortune 500 companies.
