Top Saint Petersburg Attractions and Experiences
Saint Petersburg is a magical city, with a long list of tourist attractions. It’s not only one of the most beautiful cities on earth, but its large historic centre is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
While virtually any building in the city’s heart can be considered an attraction, the Hermitage Museum is the city’s undoubted cultural drawcard. Housed in the Winter Palace of the Romanov Dynasty, the Hermitage Museum features one of the world’s greatest and oldest collections of art, treasure, and antiquities.
Visit the Peter and Paul Fortress to see the church where most of the Romanov Czars of Russia from Peter the Great are buried; and explore the Alexander Nevsky Monastery which houses the tombs of some of the world’s most famous composers and authors, including Tchaikovsky and Fyodor Dostoevsky.
No trip to Saint Petersburg is complete without seeing an opera or ballet performance at the Mariinsky, which is the city’s most well-known theatre. One of the best ways to see the city, especially during the summer, is to take a canal tour. Alternatively, Saint Petersburg has a lively community of local guides, who will happily show you their beloved city on guided walking tours.
Getting In and Getting Around
South African passport holders attending the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ do not require a visa for a stay of up to 90 days in Russia.
Saint Petersburg’s metro system is the second largest in Russia, after that of Moscow. The metro is a cheap and effective way to get around the city, and also a major tourist attraction due to the beautiful decorations of the stations.
