Travel report St Petersburg
Russia’s second largest city is often described as an “open-air architectural museum”. Although St Petersburg can look back on only 300 years of history, making it one of the youngest European cities, the city is nevertheless full of places of interest. Almost the entire city centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, including the world famous art museum The Hermitage. Travelogues recommend exploring St Petersburg on foot. Amongst the sights worth seeing are many churches and palaces. The most northerly city in the world with a population over one million, St Petersburg glows with a special light during the so-called ‘White Nights’, that period in summer when, because of its northerly position, the city remains almost continually light.
