Saint Petersburg is a very young city by European standards built on a swamp, in fact when you consider the first 30 years of its existence  during Reign of its founder Tsar Peter the Great many of the buildings that you see today where already lining the banks all of the Neva river. The city was founded on the 27 May in 1703, by Peter the Great who had recently taken both the Swedish fortress of Nyenschantz and the city of Nyen, on the Neva river which was within the Swedish controlled Ingrian territory.

It is sometimes called the Venice of the North, and also feels a lot like Dutch cities, the swamp beneath secured by “tree trunk piles” or foundations upon which both the Peter and Paul Fortress and the Isaac Cathedral was built. The is beautifully designed and laid out.

Now days Saint Petersburg is an astonishingly Beautiful City full of old world charm and of course still bearing the  palatial splendour and opulence of Tsars  (To Be honest her Tsarinas had the more opulent flare) , also with an interesting social history, with 70 years of Communism before 1991.

There are beautiful buildings and landmarks to see and hear about on the Grand Tour, in fact on this tour you’ll get to see all the major landmarks along the Neva River and in the central Tourist District.
