The State Hermitage is one of the largest and oldest art museums in the world. It was founded in 1764 by Catherine the Great and has been opened to the public since 1852. Its collections comprise over three million items, including the vast collection of paintings of the most prominent artists including Da Vinci, Rafael, Rembrandt, Rubens etc.The Winter Palace is the most famous part of the Hermitage public museums. It was, from 1732 to 1917, the official residence of the Russian monarchs. Situated between the Palace Embankment and the Palace Square, adjacent to the site of Peter the Great's original Winter Palace, the present and fourth Winter Palace was built and altered almost continuously between the late 1730s and 1837, when it was severely damaged by fire and immediately rebuilt. The original project was in 1732 created by architect Francesco Bartolomeo Rastrelli.

St. Petersburg is often referred to as Venice of the North. From the very outset the city was built on water, on numerous islands in delta of Neva River. The combination of the architecture and water in Saint Petersburg, as well as in Venice, has a special charm.

A new perspective on the city can be gained from water-level and the boat trip visit some areas of the city that might not be reached on ground.
There are 342 bridges in the city limits of Saint Petersburg. 
Peter the Great was designing the city as another Amsterdam and Venice, with canals instead of streets and citizens skillful in sailing. Initially, there were only about ten bridges constructed in the city, mainly across ditches and minor creeks.

Peterhof is one of the oldest summer residences in the vicinity of St.Petersburg. Peterhof means "Peter’s Court". It was founded in 1710, when the Peter and Paul Fortress lost its military significance, and Peter the Great started to build another fortress on Kotlin Island to protect St.Petersburg from the city.

Peterhof, a series of palaces and gardens in Russia's is known by some as the "Russian Versailles," and features the the Grand Cascade and Samson Fountain, and many other and very interesting and unique water fountains that require no pumps.
