Cool Things To Do in St. Petersburg

St. Petersburg is Russia's most European city and it offers a wide range of cosmopolitan activities and fun things to do. Peterhof is perhaps St. Petersburg's most famous and spectacular imperial estate. The Grand Palace is filled with fascinating and elaborate interiors and sits on top of a high seashore ridge overlooking the vast Lower Park. SKA St. Petersburg is not among the best-known Russian hockey clubs - certainly its reputation pales in comparison to that of the old Spartak, Dynamo or Red Army teams - but enthusiastic fans fill the sparkling new Ice Palace to see their team play rivals from across Russia. Moskovskii Prospekt is a thoroughfare of Stalinist architecture. It's an intriguing place to see, with its monolithic buildings that dominate the skyline and impress with their forbidding exteriors. In a city with the size and variety of St. Petersburg, you'll find an array of cool things to do - start with this list of activities and go from there.
