When you fly to Pulkovo International Airport (LED), you ll immediately be impressed by the sights that this amazing city offers. The city that you see was once a swamp many years ago, but now, it has been transformed into one of Europe s most beautiful cities.
Regarded as the Venice of the North, this city has an intricate system of canals, which add to its interest. Italianate villas and baroque palaces and neoclassical cathedrals all lend to the charm of St Petersburg.
While there are countless things to see in Russia s capital city, here are four things that you won t want to miss:
Located on the Moyka River, this palace has one of the most interesting histories of all palaces in Europe and offers one of the most elaborate interiors.
Built on the site where Emperor Alexander II was assassinated in 1881, this church is dedicated to his memory and features the iconic onion domes and a colourful facade, making it one of the most famous landmarks in the city.
