Saint Petersburg

Le musée de l'Ermitage à Saint Petersbourg en Russie

Welcome to Saint Petersburg ! The “Venice of the North” was founded in 1703 by Peter the Great and is now considered to be Russia’s cultural capital. A city built on water, made of about 30 islands and divided by over 60 canals.

From imperial palaces of the Romanov dynasty to Nevsky Prospekt, one of Russia’s most famous avenues, and the Hermitage, one of the largest museums in the world, Saint Petersburg is a magnificent city to visit at least once in a lifetime !
