St. Petersburg, Russia
Founded by Peter the Great in 1703, St. Petersburg edges the Neva River and is considered one of the cultural capitals of the world. Ships often dock here overnight, allowing cruisers extra time to visit the city’s attractions. St. Petersburg is home to more than 250 museums, including the world-famous Hermitage Museum, where more than 3 million artworks and artifacts are housed in six beautiful buildings like the baroque Winter Palace. At the Hermitage, visitors can admire the masterpieces of Rembrandt, van Gogh, Picasso, Michelangelo and more. For shopping and nightlife, take a stroll along the Nevsky Prospekt, the metropolis’ main avenue. Other can’t-miss sights include city’s churches and their magnificent domes, from the colorful Russian-style onion tops of the iconic Church of Our Savior of the Spilled Blood, to the 300-foot gilded dome capping St. Isaac’s Cathedral and the Trinity Cathedral’s spangled blue cupolas.
