When traveling to St. Petersburg, we always recommend setting aside at least a week to explore all the popular places in the city. But what if you only have one day?
Of course, this is a challenge for any traveler, but with good planning and an efficient route, you can see a lot in the northern capital. To do this, just rent a hotel in the center of St. Petersburg for daily rent and follow our instructions.
Start your day with a hearty breakfast at the hotel. This way you will save time and prepare for a busy day.
Next, go to the Bolshaya Neva embankment to look at the panorama of Vasilyevsky Island and the Peter and Paul Fortress. Along the way, don't forget to stop to enjoy the ancient streets and canal embankments.
After enjoying your time by the water, head to the Hermitage to look at the rich collection of works of art from around the world. We warn you, you can spend a whole day visiting the museum if you don’t watch the time.
After the Hermitage, head towards the Peter and Paul Fortress. It can be reached on foot from the museum.
The northern capital was founded on the territory of the historical fortress, and now the Peter and Paul Cathedral and various museums of the history of the city are located here. Postpone their visits to your next trip and enjoy another panorama, but this time to the opposite shore.
Do you keep track of timing? Then return to the other bank of the Bolshaya Neva and stroll along Palace Square, where the Winter Palace and the Alexander Column are located. There are many restaurants and cafes in the area where you can have a delicious lunch and relax a bit.
After lunch, go to the Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood. An amazing building, unlike other buildings in St. Petersburg. Nearby is the Russian Museum, where the famous “The Ninth Wave” by Aivazovsky is displayed.
Then you can stroll along Nevsky Prospekt, go to souvenir shops or the Galereya shopping center to buy souvenirs.
After a busy day, it is useful to relax and unwind in a cozy hotel. If you rent a hotel for daily rent in the center of St. Petersburg, you won’t have to take a long time to return to your room by public transport.
Choose Theater Square Hotel to enjoy your holiday in the heart of the historical part of the northern capital.
