A treasure trove of art and culture, historic St Petersburg offers visitors an extraordinarily rich experience. But nothing quite compares to the Hermitage Museum, which houses more than 3 million works of art and world culture artefacts. You might see Egyptian antiquities, Renaissance works, or paintings by Matisse and Picasso. The city is just as intoxicating. Known as the Venice of the North, St Petersburg has a distinctly Italian flavour, with plazas and canals dotted with Italianate mansions. Iconic photo opportunities include the ornate and brightly coloured Church of the Saviour on Spilled Blood and the city's main street, Nevsky Prospekt.
