Immerse Yourself in St. Petersburg, Russia

Resting along the Baltic Sea with the Nevar River cutting through it, St. Petersburg is home to more than 5 million residents and almost as many significant locales to visit, as the city is Russia’s cultural heart and soul. Founded in the early 1700s, St. Petersburg served as the imperial capital for two centuries and remains one of the city’s most influential and significant cities.

Second in size to Moscow, St. Petersburg is the hub for all things arts and culture, including world-class opera and ballet at Mariinsky Theatre; stunning architecture of iconic sites Savior on the Spilled Blood Church and Winter Palace; and fortresses from long ago. Tour the imperial city with three days of sightseeing, immersed in the city’s captivating history and heritage.

Day 3

Hop on a canal cruise through St. Petersburg’s winding canal system — known as the Venice of the North for good reason — and take in the sights by boat. Hop off for a tour of Yusupov Palace, where Grigori Rasputin was murdered, while learning all about the high-profile crime and tragic Russian tale leading to his demise. Plan for some pictures by the Upper Garden of Peterhof, reminiscent of Versailles, and the stunning fountains in the Lower Park. While there tour the Tsars Bath House and enjoy the views of Kronshtadt, a gold-domed architectural wonder on an island in the near distance on the Gulf.

Head back to the city for your last night in St. Petersburg! Sleep will come easy after this three-day, whirlwind visit.

Creating a wellness environment in the workplace is a terrific idea, and many companies acknowledge the benefits of providing health and wellness programs to employees. However, the concept is anything but new. More than a century ago, Johnson & Johnson offered its New Jersey-based employees access to an on-site health center and a fitness center with a swimming pool and basketball court. In the 1970s, the company followed with the launch of Live for Life, an on-site wellness program with “access to behavior modification tools and education on topics like nutrition, stress management and more.”
