The cradle of the October Revolution. For those interested in history - a very interesting place that is worth a visit.
Savior on Spilled Blood
The long-suffering Cathedral, one of the most impressive and beautiful cathedrals of the city, also known as the Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ on Blood. Outwardly, it is somewhat similar to the St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow. And it was built in 1881 in memory of the mortally wounded and deceased Emperor Alexander II, who abolished serfdom and survived eight assassination attempts. Since 1997, the cathedral has also become a museum. Here are beautiful mosaics and fascinating excursions.
For many tourists planning a vacation, Peter 2015 is also Tsarskoye Selo. Here, the Catherine Palace, where the famous and mysterious Amber Room is located, is of particular interest to visitors. In warm, sunny weather, it is also very pleasant to take a walk in the local park.
Luxurious mansion with a rich history, its own theater, secret staircases, dungeons and a mystical past associated with the mysterious murder of Grigory Rasputin.

Museum of Railway Engineering
Located at the Warsaw Station open-air museum. Here right on the rails proudly rise foreign and domestic rare steam locomotives that once served faithfully the passengers on the country's first railways.
Excursions and events
City life is rich and full of cultural events. How to relax in St. Petersburg and not visit the City Day at the end of May, go to the Children's Day on June 1 at Palace Square. Here every year a new program! In June, the most beautiful park design contest “Imperial Gardens of Russia” takes place in Mikhailovsky Garden. And at the end of the month, music lovers should attend the open-air jazz concert “White Night Swing.” A month later, at the end of July, if you're lucky, you will be on Navy Day. Spectacular and beautiful. The awesome warships enter the Neva, some of which you can even go up for inspection if you have the patience to stand a long queue. Fans of a bicycle are simply obliged to visit the famous Tweed Run in July - the retro bike ride “For those in tweed” . You will see not only unique old bicycles, but also their no less exotic owners. What else can you see in St. Petersburg and how to do it most optimally? You can quickly and conveniently explore the city by acquiring an excursion on the City Tour double-decker bus, which runs along the ring route and allows you to see many major attractions at a time.
They will be especially interesting, of course, to children. This is the fortified city of Kronstadt, the Maritime Museum with a collection of ships, the icebreaker Krasin and the submarine, which you can see not only from the outside, but also from the inside. It will also be exciting to stroll along the Promenade des Anglais or the Lieutenant Schmidt embankment, where huge sea liners constantly moor in the summer.
What can you see in St. Petersburg? On a cloudy or rainy day, the best solution is a trip to the St. Petersburg Oceanarium. By visiting it, you find yourself in a real underwater world. Such an excursion is especially attractive for children. Coral thickets, stingrays soaring in water and flocking here and there flocks of beautiful, bright fish, shrimp, seahorses and other animals. Here you can not only look at the feeding of sharks and seals, watch the sinister piranhas, but also take a walk along the most beautiful underwater corridor. Very exciting!
The real Russian analogue of western Disneyland. A park of fun and exciting attractions and entertainments, constantly changing and never ceasing to amaze.
Walk along the Neva embankments
The most affordable vacation Peter 2015 offers on its picturesque promenades. We recommend on a hot summer evening to go for a walk along the city rivers and canals with access to the Big Neva - very beautiful and informative! The best routes: Griboedov Canal, Moika and Kryukov Canal. Or just walk along the Moika embankments and Griboedov Canal.
Many tourists throw coins to the mini-monument Chizhik-Pyzhik on the Fontanka or the Hare at Petropavlovka to fulfill their cherished desires. Stock up on coins - getting in will not be easy!
In addition to being elegant and cinematic, real concerts are still taking place here, as in the old days. It is curious that you can catch a train here only by rising to the second floor.
An amazing layout of the country with a change of day and night, plying trains and fun scenes that can be watched for hours. It is located nearby the Moscow Gate metro station. At the Admiralteyskaya metro station, it will also be interesting to look at a reduced layout project of St. Petersburg of the 18th century and its then suburbs.
Well, at the end of the city sightseeing tour, you can come to the Mini-City in the Alexander Park and look around again, feeling like a real Gulliver!
