Russia Cruise Deals
Cruises to Russia via Baltic make stops in the beautiful cultural capital of Russia St Petersburg. You will get to see architectural wonders such as the Menshikov Palace, the Church of the Saviour, the bustling Square of Arts and the Hermitage, a haven for art collections. St Petersburg was the capital of Russia from 1712-1903 but remains to be seen as the cultural capital of the country. The city was founded by Peter the Great in 1703. The architecture in St Petersburg is inspired by London, Vienna and Paris and has similarities to the romantic city of Venice with its canals and bridges. The buildings are all as they originally were as St Petersburg was one of the few places not conquered during World War II. Most ships offer the opportunity of an overnight stay on board in St Petersburg, allowing more time to explore the city.
