Cruises To St. Petersburg

Founded by Russian Tsar, Peter the Great, St. Petersburg has for centuries been the cultural centre of Russia, with its spectacular architecture, Tchaikovsky operas, and the famous Kirov ballet. It has undergone many changes over the decades, but "The Venice of the North" remains a dazzling cruise destination, a Russian city with a European flair, a city with more than 200 museums, and one of the largest English gardens in Europe!
