Your route takes you past the Nevsky Prospect, St. Petersburg's most famous street, lined with magnificent palaces, churches and 18th and 19th century buildings.
Travel past the vast Palace Square, Winter Palace ( Hermitage), the University Embankment, the Admiralty, the famous Bronze Horseman and much more.
Peter and Paul Cathedral is the impressive 18th century ecclesiastical edifice and the burial place of many of the Romanovs. It was Peter the Great`s decision to build a fortress to protect the area from possible attack by the Swedish army and navy. The day when the fortress was founded on a small island in the Neva delta is considered to be the birthday of the city of Petersburg. The Swedes were defeated before the fortress was even completed. From that point on, the fortress housed part of the city's garrison and served as a high security political prison.
St.Isaac's Cathedral - The gilded dome of the Cathedral dominates the skyline of the city. The former principal Orthodox cathedral of the country is one of our most visited city landmarks.
St. Isaac's Cathedral is the forth tallest cathedral in the world, after the Cathedrals of St. Peter in Rome, St. Paul in London and St. Maria in Florence.
The exterior of the Cathedral barely hints on its breathtaking interior adorned with gold, semiprecious stones and mosaics, oil paintings.
