You will be picked up at your hotel and will be shown the main sights of St. Petersburg including Nevsky Prospect, St. Petersburg’s lively main street; the Kazan Cathedral; and the Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, so called because it was built as a memorial on the spot where Emperor Alexander II was assassinated on March 1, 1881; and the Hermitage, which boasts over 2.7 million exhibits and displays a diverse range of art and artifacts from all over the world and from throughout history. It occupies six magnificent buildings including the Winter Palace, Small, Old and New Hermitages.
Today your excursion will take you to Pushkin and include an entrance to Ekaterina Palace.
