St. Petersburg, Russia
Situated at the confluence of the Gulf of Finland and the mighty Neva River, this former imperial capital fascinates visitors with its strong European influences, grand residences, world-renowned museums and extraordinary monuments to a glittering past gone by. With its elegant palace-lined waterways, gilded and domed skyline, and grand boulevards where Czars once traveled in golden carriages, the majestic city of St. Petersburg well-deserves its nickname as the "Empress of the Baltic."
The former Winter Palace and four adjacent buildings house one of the finest collections of art in the world.
The ornate Baroque palace sports an ornate blue and white façade crowned with golden onion domes.
Five cupolas rise above the ornate blue-and-white Baroque façade of this cathedral designed for Peter The Great's daughter.
