St. Petersburg

Über das Reiseziel

Inextricably linked to the major events of Soviet Union, St. Petersburg cannot escape its imperial past. Physically, at least, St. Petersburg has been the city of the tsars since Peter the Great founded the city in a swamp and moved the capital here from Moscow in 1712 to provide greater contact with the West. Many of the major baroque and neoclassical buildings and well-designed streets and landscaped parks are the work of imperial French and Italian architects. St. Petersburg, Russia’s second largest city, is often called Russia’s Western Gate, and the City of White Nights. For a splendid overview of the city, climb the dome of St. Isaac’s Cathedral on Isaakievskaya square, a massive example of 19th century civic-religious architecture; its dome is covered in pure gold. Nearby, on Senate Square overlooking the Neva, is Falconet’s Monument to Peter the Great. Peter and Paul Fortress was founded by Peter the Great and was erected in just one year between 1703 and 1704 during the Great Northern War against Sweden. The fortress was never used to defend the city but it was used as a political prison under the Tsar. Inside the fortress is the main attraction for visitors: the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul containing the tombs of Peter the Great, Catherine the Great, Nicholas II and other tsars. Nevsky Prospect is St. Petersburg’s main avenue and one of the best-known streets in Russia. The buildings along Nevsky Prospekt are a treasure house for art-nouveau-fans. Nevsky Prospect is also the city’s central shopping street and the hub of the city’s entertainment and nightlife. Even if the rest of the city were non-existent, the Hermitage alone would merit a week-long visit to St. Petersburg. Located in the magnificent, luxurious Winter Place, former residence of the tsars, this collection of art unquestionably ranks among the world’s finest. But before you immerse yourself in the art, take in the main halls where the tsar reigned and entertained, especially the awesome Malachite Hall, where the provisional Government held its last meeting before the revolution exploded around it. Cool and aristocratic St. Petersburg is a magnificent city with beautiful architecture everywhere. Often described as the Venice of the North, St Petersburg is a city defined by water. Whether you’re cruising the elegant canals, crossing one of the 342 bridges in the city, or just watching them being raised over the mighty Neva River at night to allow ships to pass through, you’re never far from water in St Petersburg.

St Petersburg: Swan Lake Ballet at the Hermitage Theater

Tag 1 - Tickets only
Choose your required tour option on booking. Then, start your 3-hour experience with a private pickup from your St. Petersburg hotel or the cruise port, or make your own way to the Hermitage Theater, one of the five Hermitage buildings on the banks of the River Neva.

Commissioned by the Empress Catherine II, who became known as Catherine the Great, the theater was completed in 1787. One of St. Petersburg’s most beautiful, it was used by the Russian imperial family for private performances and boasts a small, chamber auditorium known for its magical atmosphere and intimacy.

On arrival, admire the handsome neoclassical façade, and step inside to absorb the gilded interior and sense of occasion. Then, take your seat and enjoy a charming performance of Swan Lake, one of the world-famous ballets by Pyotr Tchaikovsky.

Lose yourself in the rousing music of the St. Petersburg State Governor's Symphony Orchestra, and admire the exquisite 1895 choreography of Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov, brought to life by the virtuoso dancers over the three acts and four scenes.

After the performance, join in the enthusiastic applause, and take your leave of the theater. Your experience ends when you travel independently back to your hotel, or enjoy a drop-off back to the start point (your hotel or cruise port), depending on your selected tour option.
