Day 1 - St. Petersburg, St Petersburg


The Corinthia Nevskij Palace hotel is perfect for families. Its central location allows for an easy walk to many nearby landmarks, and it offers a kid-friendly Sunday brunch, a children's playroom, and babysitting if Mom and Dad want to enjoy a dinner out alone. Begin your exploration of the city just yards outside the hotel with a walk down Nevskij Prospekt, the main city street in St. Petersburg. A little ways south of downtown is the Lion Bridge, as well as the St. Petersburg Conservatory and the Mariinsky Theater, the site of beautiful ballets which may be enjoyable for older children. If ballet isn't an activity of choice, the Zoological Museum is just across the Palace Bridge to the north, and is fascinating for people of all ages. Anytime a snack is needed, blini can be found in small cafes everywhere, and Teremok (downtown) has fast and yummy ones.
