3-day, 2-night itinerary

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.

The Hamilton Hotel Review

The Hamilton Hotel, located steps from the White House, was the perfect place for a relaxing weekend getaway. Upon arrival, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful with a quick check-in process. The lobby was immaculate with shining marble flooring, velvet couches and an arched ceiling design that brought a sense of sophistication.
