Russian winter fairytale


5 Days / 4 Nights

 With its population of nearly 5 million citizens St.Petersburg is one of the largest cities in Europe.

It is located closer to the North Pole than any other of the world’s large cities: at the latitude of just 6,5 degrees below Arctic Circle! In comparison to the places with the same latitude in Canada or Siberia St.Petersburg has relatively mild climate due to benign influence of the warm Athlantic currents.

Covered with light snow, the city’s parks and squares look enchanted and create the impression of peace and spaciousness.

The golden spires and domes are reflected in the snow lying dazzlingly upon the frozen rivers and canals, while the grilles of the gardens are forming an intricate white lacework. All that creates unique magic impression of the Russian winter known from the novels of the Russian writers.

Troika ride in a snowy park followed by a dinner in a Russian restaurant or a ballet performance at Mariinsky will help making your tour an unforgettable experience.
