Some facts about Saint-Petersburg, Russia
Located at the head of the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic Sea, Saint-Petersburg, Russia directly borders countries of the European Union. Among the European cities, our city is the third in terms of population after Londonand Moscow.
The Northern Capital of Russia had seen many dramatic events over its three-century history. Founded in 1703 by the first Russian Emperor Peter the Great, it is described as the Venice of the North for its multiple rivers and canals; and for its classic European architecture. The city luckily escaped destruction during the World War II. It was besieged by the German army. Being almost surrounded, starving, suffering the epidemies, Saint-Petersburg endured almost 3 years of the siege. Should the city fell, it would had been razed by the direct Adolf Hitler's order.
Besides St. Petersburg, city's names were Petrograd (1914-1924) and Leningrad (1924-1991). Today the city is a major trade gateway, financial and industrial centre of the Russian Federation. It is one of the most actively developing regions of Russia and it has a truly enormous investment potential. In 2009, foreign direct investment to the city came to 5.5 billion USD. A large number of foreign consulates, international corporations, banks and other businesses are located here.
Russian Northern Capital is also the place where more than 150 exhibitions are conducted each year, 100 of which are at international levels. It is often described as the most Western city of Russia. The Historic city Centre and Related Groups of Monuments constitute a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Three large cargo seaports maintain the sea communications: Bolshoi Port, Kronstadt, and Lomonosov. International cruise liners have been served at the passenger port at Morskoy Vokzal on the south-west of Vasilevsky Island.

Peterhof, Pushkin, Pavlovsk, and Gatchina are crowded with tourists these times. St. Petersburg Tours and Excursions should be booked in advance in summer!
