A Russian jewel on the Baltic Sea, St. Petersburg was founded by Peter the Great, but named after the Saint. There's plenty to fascinate visitors to this most cultured and European of Russian destinations, from the expansive Hermitage Museum to spectacular palaces and cathedrals.
World-class restaurants, famous beaches, and iconic landmarks like Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge are just the starting point. Day trips provide even more Australian wonder, from the pristine sands of Palm Beach to the forest walks of the Blue Mountains. And don't miss the Hunter Valley wine region, with over 120 wineries.
