Explore the 'Venice of the North,' a city that grew out of a Tsar's desire to Europeanise, at one of the quietest and most atmospheric times of the year.
Aside from spending a full day and a half in the Hermitage, one of the greatest galleries in the world, visit the State Museum of Russian Art to trace the history of Russian art from icons to Malevich; the Faberge museum for a tour of the iconic eggs produced for the Imperial family; the stunning Catherine palace with the legendary Amber room, Pavlosk and other monuments of interest.
In Moscow, see the Kremlin, both of the Tretyakov Galleries, the Pushkin and other highlights.
