Take a wander down Nevsky Prospekt, seeing its bustling shops, and learn how the main street was created at the request of Tsar Peter the Great the citys founder and a man held in reverence by Petersburgers still today. Pass through Senate Square to see the Monument to Peter the Great (aka the Bronze Horseman) and then take a rest at the Embankment.
Have your camera ready to capture photos of Peter and Paul Fortress, a historical site that sprawls across St Petersburgs Zayachy Island, and then visit three of the citys magnificent Russian Orthodox cathedrals.
First on your list is St Isaacs Cathedral, a delightful golden-domed creation that was built during the days of the Romanov dynasty. Walk around inside and marvel at its towering marble colonnades, ceiling frescoes and walls lavishly bedecked with mosaics. Compare its ostentatious design with the more refined simplicity of nearby Kazan Cathedral, and then head to the Church of the Saviour on Spilled Blood one of the citys superstar sights. Pose for photos against its candy-colored faade and explore inside while hearing tales of Tsar Alexander II, a reformist assassinated on the spot where the church was later built.
