With the attractions and sights in St Petersburg, a short stay in the city may just not be enough to explore it. However, if this is all that you’ve got to be in Russia’s second largest city, you just have to make sure to make the most of your visit in this beautiful and spectacular city. – And this is where proper planning comes in.
For a weekend in St Petersburg, it is important to plan for compact activities; meaning, something that would not make you go from one far place to another. It would be great not to miss in your list some of the city’s most famous attractions, such as the Hermitage Museum.
A long weekend in the city allows you to check out more of St Petersburg. Although not that much still, but compared to a mere weekend in the city, this gives you a chance to add more places to visit in your itinerary.
Compared to just a weekend or long weekend in the city, a week in St Petersburg promises of better and bigger experience. With so much more to visit during this course of time, a whole week in the city will allow you to appreciate and embrace the many offerings of St Petersburg.
There are indeed a lot of things that tourists can do in the City of Tsars even for those who intend to only make a short stay in the city. It may just be a weekend, a long weekend, a whole week (or even just a day!), but with proper planning, there is no reason not to fall in love in St Petersburg.
