In St. Petersburg, visit St. Isaac's Cathedral, the largest cathedral in Russia and the fourth largest in Europe; and Catherine Palace in Pushkin, where you’ll witness the luxury and opulence of this palace built in the Russian Baroque style

A tour highlight is St. Petersburg's Winter Palace complex, previously the residence of the czars, where you’ll visit the world-famous Hermitage Museum. With one of the world's finest art collections, you’ll see celebrated works by Rembrandt, Leonardo da Vinci, and the major French impressionists. Since the Hermitage Museum is housed in the former residence of czars, you’ll also see the opulence of a once imperial palace.
