Saint Petersburg, Russia (Arrive 7:00 am)

** Please note that due to Russia’s visa requirements there will be an included shore excursion arranged by Target Tours for the two days spent in this port. This shore excursion will include your entry visa. You will not be permitted to enter the port independently outside of this shore excursion. **

Founded by the Russian Tsar, Peter the Great, Saint
Petersburg has for centuries been the cultural centre of Russia, with its spectacular architecture, Tchaikovsky operas and the famous Kirov ballet. It has undergone many changes over the decades, but “The Venice of the North” remains a dazzling cruise destination. A Russian city with a European flair, more than 200 museums, and one of the largest English gardens in Europe!

Included Shore Excursion (9 hours)

Day one will include a city sightseeing morning tour and a tour of Peter and Paul Fortress, the first structure to be built in Saint Petersburg, and thus the birthplace of the city, it never served its intended defensive function. Instead it has had a rich, hugely varied, and sometimes sinister history as a military base, a home of government departments, the burial ground of the Russian Imperial family, the site of ground-breaking scientific experiments, and a forbidding jail that held some of Russia’s most prominent political prisoners. After a tour of Saint-Isaac’s Cathedral, transfer to Tsarskoye Selo for a tour of Catherine Palace. The Catherine Palace is named after Catherine I, the wife of Peter the Great, who ruled Russia for two years after her husband’s death. Originally a modest two-storey building commissioned by Peter for Catherine in 1717, the Catherine Palace owes its awesome grandeur to their daughter, Empress Elizabeth, who chose Tsarskoe Selo as her chief summer residence. Lunch is included at Podvorie restaurant with Russian degustation menu including a shot of vodka and a glass of wine.

Saint Petersburg, Russia Depart 7:00 pm

Today we will continue exploring Saint Petersburg on our second day in port.

Included Shore Excursion (8 1⁄2 hours) day two of your visit to Saint Petersburg starts with a tour of The Grand Palace at Peterhof. This Palace was designed to be the centerpiece of Peter the Great’s “Russian Versaille”. Around 1720, the Tsar gave up on attempts to establish his court at Strelna, mainly because the boggy ground proved entirely unsuitable for the canals and fountains that he envisioned. Moving his attentions further east to Peterhof, the Tsar began to draw up his own plans for the grounds and palace. Work had already begun on a modest palace, designed by Jean-Baptiste Le Blond, in 1714, and that building was completed in 1721. Also included is a tour of the Hermitage Museum, Saint Petersburg’s most popular visitor attraction and one of the world’s largest and most prestigious museums. Lunch included at “Summer Palace” restaurant including 3 courses, coffee/tea and mineral water.
