St Petersburg, being the second largest city in Russia, has been called “The Northern Venice”, “Palmyra of the North” and “The Northern Capital”. For 200 years, since 1712, St Petersburg was the capital of the Russian empire. It was built by the best Russian and European architects. All the trends in architecture of that time were used while building St Petersburg.

Petrodvorets is located 29 km far from St. Petersburg. The boat trip takes about 30 minutes from St. Petersburg’s center.
