Explore the natural sites and cities steeped in history of the Baltic Sea. Architectural gems in the Baroque style, churches with domes so elaborate they seem otherworldly, palaces, fountains, gardens, canals, and the famous "perspectives" that criss-cross the city: at each street corner a new theatrical decor is revealed. We invite you to visit this colourful city where the atmosphere is rich with the splendor of the Tsars and the traces of the Russian Enlightenment.
