The northernmost metropolis in the world and today’s Russia’s cultural capital and second largest city, St Petersburg bears on every corner the vestiges of his glorious past: founded in 1703 by the emperor Peter I the Great on the estuary of the River Neva, St Petersburg served as capital of the Russian Empire for over three centuries until the October Revolution, stocking up an impressive collection of palaces and residences built from the Romanov Tsars and the empire’s richest and most powerful aristocratic families, such as the Stroganovs, the Mihailovs and the Menshikovs.
Built on over 200 islands set apart by a wide network of rivers and artificial canals, the city centre is a true marvel of engineering, embellished by some of the finest achievements of 18th and 19th century European architecture.
