St-Petersburg in 2 days. City Highlights and Splendid Imperial Country Palaces
Have 2 days to spend in St-Petersburg?
Let me show you the highlights of the city on the 1st day- we'll see Peter and Paul Fortress, Spilled Blood Cathedral, St. Isaac's Cathedral, the Hermitage museum, one of the largest in the world and the most breathtaking former Imperial Palaces on the 2-nd day.
Another perl in the beautiful necklace of the Royal summer residences around St-Petersburg is Peterhof which will never disappointed even the most demanding visitor who will leave this place with only the best impressions. Peterhof was built as the Grand Marine Residence of the founder of St-Petersburg and the first emperor of Russia-Peter the Great, who called it as "my paradise".
Tsar's village with the Catherine Palace is the second place of our interest on this day. Chosen by the Tsars as the main summer residence for living, it always received a lot of attention from Russian monarchs, who invited many talented people for the construction of palaces, parks and near by "exemplary town" of Catherine the Great
