A visit to St. Petersburg is always an unforgettable experience. On this trip, you’ll clap eyes on a rich parade of sights, including Menshikov's Palace, the building of 12 Ministries of Peter the Great, the Academy of Sciences and the Chamber of Curiosities. The city’s rich history will come to life as you explore the bustling avenues of the city. At Vasilievsky Island, enjoy a magnificent view of the Neva River at its widest, and the distinctive Rostral Columns. Your guide will then take you for a photo stop at the Aurora battleship - which signalled the beginning of the historical Bolshevik Revolution in 1917. Plus you’ll see the field of Mars and its tremendous esplanade. Another jewel of the city is the Church of Resurrection on Spilled Blood, built on the site where Alexander II was assassinated in 1881. Your tour carries on towards Nevsky Avenue, Russia's most famous street. Before returning back to your ship spend some time admiring St Isaac's Cathedral and as you pass Decembrist's Square take a look at the famous statue known as the 'Bronze Horseman'. Like we said, a visit to St Petersburg is an unforgettable experience.
