Russia – Saint Petersburg

Saint Petersburg, Russia

Saint Petersburg (used to known as Petrograd and Leningrad) was founded by Peter the Great in 1703. Today, it’s the second biggest Russian city (after Moscow).
Saint Petersburg is a great tourist attraction. It has a lovely historic center, wonderful museum the Hermitage and many many bridges (more than in Venice). 😉

Saint Petersburg is a very popular destination in summer because of “white nights” (=long daylight). Of course, there are many places that are located quite far to north and you can experience there this phenomena; but Saint Petersburg is somehow famous because of white nights. 🙂
