The best hotels in St Petersburg

Two suggestions for an ideal day out in St Petersburg – whether you are new to the city or know it well.

First-timers

Morning

Start the day bright and early with a visit to the Hermitage museum (00 7 812 710 9079; hermitagemuseum.org; tickets R400/£4). With masterpieces by artists including Leonardo da Vinci, Rembrandt, Picasso, Renoir and Matisse, it is one of the greatest – and most daunting – museums in the world. Queues are usually lengthy, but not outrageously so; allow 30 minutes or thereabouts to buy your ticket. Don’t try to do too much on a first visit; after two or three hours, you will be overwhelmed. Before you leave, be sure to check out the souvenir shop, which has a great stock of prints and posters.

Lunch

Stroll across the vast expanse of Palace Square – the setting for such significant events in Russian history as the 1905 Bloody Sunday massacre and the 1917 October (Bolshevik) Revolution – to Nevsky Prospekt. From here, it’s a five-minute walk to the Church of the Saviour on Spilt Blood and its otherworldly onion domes. Then make your way to the other end of Nevsky for lunch in the sumptuous surroundings of the Palkin restaurant (Nevsky Prospekt 47; 007 812 703 5372; palkin.ru). A two-course meal costs about R3000 (£30) a head – but it’s a great institution, and serves high-quality, traditional Russian food, from beetroot soup (better than it sounds) to sturgeon and pancakes. If it’s too early for alcohol, order some of the local kvass, a fermented soft drink made from rye bread.

Afternoon

After lunch, spend the rest of the afternoon people watching on Nevsky Prospekt. You can explore its many churches and monuments, but if you feel like a break from all the culture, pop into the Gostinny Dvor shopping centre, where you will find clothes, food and more souvenir shops.

Evening

Head to the Mariinsky Theatre to catch some ballet or opera. You can get a ticket (from R800/£8) in one of Nevsky Prospket’s many ticket outlets, but best to do so at least a day or so in advance. After the show, round off the day with a drink in one of the nearby bars or head back to Nevsky Prospekt for a meal in the Literary Café (R2500/ £25 dinner) Nevsky Prospekt, 18; 00 7 812 312 6057.

Where to go

No trip to St Petersburg is complete without a visit to the world famous Hermitage museum, which contains masterpieces by Leonardo da Vinci, Picasso and Rembrandt. A big art city, St Petersburg also boasts the splendid Russian Museum, which displays homegrown talents. Aside from art, St Petersburg is also full of fantastic architecture, from the psychedelic domes of the Church on Spilled Blood to the imposing façade of St Isaac’s Cathedral. If you get bored of art and architecture, take a walk down bustling Nevsky Prospekt, a sight in its own right.

Know before you go

All western visitors to Russia need a visa. Real Russia (020 7100 7370; realrussia.co.uk) offers a quick and easy service.
