Russia is a country that can hardly leave anyone indifferent. With its history, art, rich culture, nature and language, it is a place where you can always find something new and exciting to see and to learn.


St.Petersburg, the so-called “Cultural Capital of Russia” is a perfect city for both getting acquainted with Russia for the first time and for exploring it deeper.


It is a city where Peter the Great was creating some of the most important pages of Russian history, a city where Pushkin, Dostoyevsky, Tchaikovsky, Rimskiy-Korsakov found inspiration, where Rastrelli, Rossi, Montferrand were making their masterpieces. A city that withstood a 900-days Siege during the cruelest of wars of the XX century. A city of the White Nights, classic ballet and the open bridges. A city you will fall in love with once you visit it.
