St Petersburg

Your cultural journey can either start or end in St Petersburg, a destination which will surely be one of the main reasons for your choice of the engrossing cruise.

St Petersburg was built as Peter The Great’s “Window on the West” and is a stunning city of cultural and architectural treasures and priceless artefacts. Having witnessed so many dramatic changes in its history it is hard to believe that it is only just over 300 years old. Most cruises stay in St Petersburg for at least two days, so as well as guided excursions there is plenty of time to experience the city independently. The amount of photo opportunities is simply staggering.

So, in short, there is plenty to see.

Contained within the Hermitage is the world’s largest art museum with over 1000 rooms and over 3 million artefacts, from Da Vinci and Michelangelo to the modern masters of Matisse and Picasso. The Hermitage is a village in itself and the Winter Palace, former home to the Tsars and Catherine the Great.

Catherine The Great’s Palace at Pushkin. The highlight of the tour has to be the, now restored Amber Room. Constructed from more than six tons of carved amber panels and backed with gold leaf and mirrors, it was a gift to Peter from the Prussian Emperor King Friedrich Wilhelm I and dubbed the eight wonder of the world. It was disassembled and stolen by the German solders during the Second World War and not seen again. The painstaking reconstruction was completed in 2003 and visitors can once again marvel at its splendour.
