    I am sorry but you’re dead wrong about the city being neglected during Soviet times. Leningrad was still the country’s cultural capital, and it was regarded as the hero city after WWII.

    Guys!!!!! no one go to main building of hermitage, only tourists go there, russian tourists as well. You have to visit shchukin collections, which consist of matiss, picasso, mane, van gogh, malevich, kandinskiy and so on. This collection was in france for two month in 2018 and over 1million people attended it. But few people know about this collention, it placed in another building, but this is also hermitage. In main building nothing interesting, art has to be modern!

    Smelt fish is to die for, but the season used to be in April, not sure if it's available all year round. Doughnuts are the best.

    I live in Saint-Pete's more than 9 years now, and it's absolutely one of the best places to visit, especially if this is your first time in Russia. People are friendly, English-speakers are abundant (most of the youth speaks English, to some extent), city is safe, and service is generally at pretty high level. Bunch of good places to eat, drink or just chill with a hookah. Lots and lots of city parks and lakes, and don't forget about all the fountains, museums and galleries. Wild parks on the outskirts are a must see too! Thank you for such a comprehensive city guide, I'll definitely recommend to my friends abroad!

    The most beautiful city in Russia, 10 times more beautiful than Moscow. A must see, is the church of spilled blood, St. Isaac, Nevskij Prospekt, and a photo of the wonderful Neva River. Legendary St. PETERSBURG.

    • john Shepard
      john Shepard 3 months ago

      @Globert Andreev You're absolutely right, it was the NEVA river, and I didn't correct Lena.

      Bruce Allen nothing would happen , authorities don't care unless it's a parade or something...and regular white collar people won't even say anything will waste a lot of time trying to find some peasant and gopniks who gonna insult you for being openly gay(like gay PDA)

    I am visiting St. Petersburg for a week in June on my own. Excited since it will be the first time ever! Lucky to see this video and useful tips to get around. Try to find some convenient and economic accommodation to spend good amount of time in the city and see the local & culture. Any recommendations where to stay other than big hotels?

    • Joshua Lieberman
      Joshua Lieberman 4 months ago

    Huge respect for including a song from a singer called Dolphin - Spring (Дельфин - Весна). Love it, and this song, in my opinion, is very beautiful and appropriate in this video, very Russian in a modern way. Not like these balalaika stereotypical annoying songs that are usually put in the background.

    What a huge city as in scale. My late Italian husband was assigned in Vyborg, went to visit him there in summer. Wow, the water smelled petrol and there were plenty of mosquitos. Went back and forth to St. Petersburgh. I loved their mushoom soup and all the savoury pastries. I even bought some to bring back to Italy. We didn't have a chance to visit the Peterhof Palace though. The bus left by the time we arrived at the bus terminal,

    Just for travaling, just for seeing something new or how it goes, but never for live there, that would be incredibly unsafe.
