St Petersburg Guide

Located on the banks of the River Neva, St Petersburg is Russia's second largest city and lies at the head of the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic Sea coast. The city's name was changed to Petrograd in 1924 but was later changed back to St Petersburg in 1991. Widely regarded as Russia's cultural hub it is probably the most western of all Russia's cities. St Petersburg's historic centre and related collection of monuments have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A popular tourist attraction in the city is The Hermitage, which is one of the largest art museums in the world. Located in the city are a large number of foreign embassies, international corporations, banks and other businesses. Unlike in Moscow, Saint Petersburg's historic architecture of the city centre, mostly consisting of Baroque and neoclassical buildings of the 18th and 19th centuries, has been largely preserved.

The city is served by passenger and cargo seaports in the Neva Bay of the Gulf of Finland, the river port higher up the Neva and tens of smaller passenger ports on both banks of the Neva River. It is a terminus of both the Volga-Baltic and White Sea-Baltic waterways.
