Let’s start with the Truths about St Petersburg
So this page is a bit of fun, it is not meant to be a wiki one-stop-shop. It has some of the interesting stuff about St Petersburg, and then a bit of the trivial stuff, including our take on the place.
The 3 C’s
St Petersburg sits on the far west of Russia, just a 100 miles (160km) from the Finnish border. It’s home to the world famous Hermitage museum, and is considered the most westernised city within Russia.
The focal area for a mini-break though will be the Palace Square. A central point next to the Hermitage museum.
