St Petersburg Holidays 2021

A port city in Russia, St Petersburg overlooks the Baltic Sea and hosts a range of sights which reflect the magnificence and history that have been left behind. Known as Russia’s imperial capital, St Petersburg has become the nation’s cultural hub, home to all things opera, ballet and art. With a visit to the Mariinsky Theatre and the State Russian Museum, many of these cultural aspects are easily accessible.

This modern city boasts stunning palaces and wonderful cathedrals, making it a must-see city break destination. With plenty of history left behind in St Petersburg, it keeps its historic core running, almost frozen in time. To add to the sheer beauty of this city, graceful canals twist and turn throughout St Petersburg. Lined with Italian-like mansions and buildings, St Petersburg could almost be compared to Venice.

Best time to go to St Petersburg

The best time for a St Petersburg holiday would be between June and September. During the summer sometimes you might catch the city experiencing nearly 24 hours of daylight – which is truly fascinating. The summer time also provides visitors with cool temperatures, even though they are the warmest that the city has throughout the year. The late summer into early autumn period sees temperatures drop again. Winters in St Petersburg are extremely cold, so if travelling during this time, make sure to pack accordingly.
