About St. Petersburg
No less than 7 palaces and more than 50 imperial houses are among the most visited tourist attractions of the city and its surroundings. The historical center of Saint Petersburg, sometimes called the open air museum of neoclassicism, was the first place in the Russian heritage listed on the UNESCO list.
The majestic image of the city is due to the varied architectural details: long and straight boulevards, large spaces, gardens and parks, decorative wrought iron fences, decorative monuments and sculptures.
