    Stop At: Peter and Paul Fortress, Petropavlovskaya Fortress, 3, St. Petersburg 197022 Russia

    The birth place of Saint Petersburg is a real fortress of the 18th century that was first built in wood and then partly rebuilt in stone. The wide walls were designed specially to protect the garrison from sieges, but never saw military action. For more than 200 years the fortress became a political prison, where for several years the outstanding Russian writer Fedor Dostoevsky was confined. Inside the fortress is the highest building of the city-center: the Peter and Paul Cathedral, where all Russian Emperors starting from Peter the Great are buried (except Peter the Second who died in Moscow).

    Duration: 40 minutes

    Stop At: Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, Griboyedova Kanala Emb., 2B/A, St. Petersburg 191186 Russia

    The Church of the Resurrection, more commonly known as the Church on Spilt Blood, commemorates the Russian peacemaker Alexander II. Although he abolished serfdom he was hated by the revolutionaries, who formed different terrorist organizations with the aim of killing the ruler. Inside, the church looks fascinating, 7 000 square meters of mosaics cover the walls. They are made of melted glass and this technique looks simply spectacular and dazzling!

    Duration: 40 minutes

    Stop At: The State Hermitage Museum, Palace Emb., 30-38, St. Petersburg 191055 Russia

    Take a tour of the Art Gallery that is ranked in the top 5 art museums in the world. The collection is so big that only 13% is ever on display at one time. After the revolution most of the interiors lost their original decor, but 5 gala rooms are still able to demonstrate how sumptuously the Romanov Dynasty lived. While on the tour you will see the cream of the collection: Italian Renaissance art, Spanish Golden Age, Flemish art and French Impressionism.
