One of our favourite destinations here at Scandi Classics is St Petersburg. Known by many as “Venice in the North”, it is a timeless city which offers a unique taste of imperial Russia, the traditional land of the Tsars.
In 2017, Scandi Classics’ Russia visa-free cruises to visit St Petersburg will commence operating from April 5th. With some slight amendments to the ferry schedule, we are delighted to now offer some new features for our cruise packages.
- Our three-day cruises provide guests with a full day in the city of St Petersburg. This includes a full land program with a private driver and guide.
- Our four-day cruise includes an overnight stay in a centrally-located St Petersburg hotel. Guests can choose between a basic package without land tour inclusions, or private tours as per personal choice and preference.
- Our six-day cruise includes two nights in a St Petersburg hotel, centrally located in the city for convenience. Again, travellers can select between booking a basic package and including private tours as per your preference. The basic package includes ferry cruise, hotel accommodation in St Petersburg, and shuttle bus between the harbour and the city centre.
St Petersburg is a leading tourist destination in Europe. It is easily accessible, has a rich and exciting history, and is a youthful and vibrant city where the architecture and culture of the past exists alongside modern convenience. It is a romantic city bursting with culture; visitors are spoiled for choice in the array of palaces, monuments, cathedrals, museums, arched bridges, gardens and canals to savour. It features a vast array of charming hotels, boutique accommodation options, and many hundreds of cafes and restaurants. Shopping is notable, and there are bars and nightclubs – a truly cosmopolitan city.
There is no easier, more convenient way to experience Russia visa-free than via a Scandi Classics cruise. And in St Petersburg, it is the Russia of the Tsars that you will enjoy – visiting galleries and museums in historic imperial palaces, strolling and picnicking in elegant gardens and parks, cruising at a leisurely pace along rivers and canals, and patronising cultural icons like the famous Mariinsky Ballet.
