The best things to do in Saint Petersburg

It's easy to make a list of what to do in Saint Petersburg, given its rich
cultural and architectural heritage. Among the most important places to visit in St. Petersburg is the Hermitage Museum. This is the most famous museum in the city and in Russia, and is one of the largest in the world. To travel here without visiting the museum would be to miss out on one of the top Saint Petersburg activities. Situated in the heart of the city, between the Neva River and the Palace Square, it occupies five interconnected buildings: the Winter Palace, the Hermitage Theatre, the Small Hermitage, the Old Hermitage, and the New Hermitage. Together they form a beautiful architectural set, so even if you don't go inside all the buildings, visiting the site must surely be high on your list of stuff to do in Saint Petersburg.

The Peter and Paul Fortress is the core of the city and within it you can find the Cathedral of Saint Peter and Saint Paul. This is one of the top attractions in Saint Petersburg for lovers of architecture or of history, as it houses the tombs of the Russian tsars, including the last, Tsar Nicolas II with his family.

St. Isaac's Cathedral, one of the most grandiose of the city, and the Church of the Savior on Blood, the most-visited church, are other beautiful Saint Petersburg attractions. Plus, while you're here you have the chance to visit the residences of the tsars, surely one of the essential things to do in Saint Petersburg.
Petergof is an impressive complex of palaces and parks; Catherine Palace in Pushkin is the summer residence of the Russian tsars and finally, there's
Pavlovsk Palace, located near Pushkin. But in addition to all these fine buildings, there are plenty of streets and squares that are also really interesting things to see in St. Petersburg.

For a list of even more things to do in this beautiful city, visit Minube. When you get home, be sure to return to Minube and share your experiences.
