Winter is a great time of year to visit St. Petersburg. The city offers many wonderful landscapes and opportunities for winter holidays. In addition to visiting the museums and palaces of St. Petersburg, there are many activities that you can do alone, with friends, family and children. If you have booked a hotel room in the center of St. Petersburg, then you can easily get to the main cultural events of the city.
1. Day in Lapland
Do you want to spend a day in Lapland? You don't need to go to Finland to do this. Instead, you can visit a reindeer farm in the "Lapland Park". You can spend the day riding, hiding in a real ice maze and taking pictures of these wonderful and cute animals. There is also an ice rink in the park where you can play hockey or go ice skating. The atmosphere is special, both adults and children will like it.
2. Sit in a cafe at Home books
Fresh delicious pastries and good coffee can be offered to you in the cafe "Rene" in the newly opened House of Books, which is located near the metro stations "Gostiny Dvor" and "Nevsky Prospekt". In this place you can always enjoy delicious breakfasts and an excellent lunch, and the beautiful view from the window of the Kazan Cathedral and Nevsky Prospekt is simply fascinating and uplifting. If you have booked an inexpensive hotel room in St. Petersburg, it will not be difficult to get here.
3. Shopping on Nevsky Prospekt
Nevsky Prospekt is the most famous street in St. Petersburg. It runs from the Alexander Nevsky Monastery to the Hermitage. Here you will find the best St. Petersburg shops, restaurants and the most beautiful buildings and bridges.
