Family holidays in St. Petersburg: what to do and where to stay?

A city with a rich history, museums and events, it is so beautiful that it is also called Venice of the North. It was a little rebus about Petersburg. Indeed, St. Petersburg is a great place to relax with your family, especially if you have booked a hotel near the center on the official website at a good price. 

1. Explore the cruiser Aurora

The cruiser Aurora is located opposite the Nakhimov Naval School. The battleship, built in 1900, played a crucial role in the 1917 revolution. This symbol of Russian history is worth visiting with the whole family. 

2. Visit the Railway Museum 

The Museum of Railways of Russia is an ideal place to visit with the whole family. Visitors will be able to learn about the technological and social history of the industry and, of course, see many trains that have had a huge impact on the development of the country. Do not miss the children's center for children from 3 to 14 years old, where children solve puzzles and riddles, do crafts, etc.

3. Go on a tour of the Peter and Paul Fortress

This structure is the oldest building in the city. A private tour of the Peter and Paul Fortress will give you access to key fragments of the city's history, including the gloomy prison cells of the Trubetskoy Bastion and the extraordinary Peter and Paul Cathedral (highlighted by high golden spires).

4. Go dog sledding

Dog sledding is one of those outdoor thrills that should be on your family list. Usually such excursions are held for groups, so you can additionally check the schedule at the reception of our hotel in St. Petersburg. The team will take you on a sleigh through a magnificent snow-covered forest. As a bonus, there is an opportunity to ride cheesecakes and walk around the dazzling frozen lake. 

5. Visit the Yusupov Palace

The bright yellow Yusupov Palace on the Moika River is one of the two surviving residences of the once influential Yusupov family. The residence is perhaps best known for the fact that Grigory Rasputin, a mystical healer and confidant of Tsar Nicholas II, was killed there. Most of the original interiors of the 18th century have been completely preserved. But the real treasure is the colorful facade of the building. 

To see these and other sights of St. Petersburg with the whole family, book a hotel in the very center of St. Petersburg. Our Theatre Square Hotel is happy to offer you comfortable fully equipped rooms. Book a room on the official website of the hotel in St. Petersburg.
