Saint Petersburg is one of Russia’s most picturesque cities. Its residents love it to the point of unquestionable adoration. To try and understand these feelings of we recommend joining the crowd of high school graduates at the Palace embankment for the Scarlet sails celebration, visiting a local club to hear one of city’s rock legends live, going out to the Lieutenant Schmidt embankment for the Navy Day to see the Baltic Fleet warships or buying a ticket for a home match of St. Petersburg’s iconic FC Zenit.

Russia in Miniature (Grand Maket Rossiya)
Mon-Sun, 10 a.m. - 8 p.m.
Eight hundred square metres (8,600 sq. ft) of floor space, covered with a scale model of Russia - it is a sight to behold for children and adults alike. The scale model presents a somewhat generalised picture of Russia - although many features, such as the Kremlin, Plesetsk Cosmodrome and the wooden island of Kizhi, are recognisable, the narrative scenes depicting a village with miniature farmers, an archaeological dig or a dance club can be found anywhere in the country. Every 15 minutes, night falls on Russia from east to west. At this point, all of the cars and trains on the roads and railways turn on their lights. Visitors can operate buttons that bring certain mechanisms to life, making the lumberjacks in Siberia fell trees and the cableway in Sochi take skiers up to the top of the mountain.
