We end the day in Novgorod, founded almost twelve centuries years ago.

DAY 6 Wednesday

ST. PETERSBURG (Breakfast)

There are not many cities in the world that can match the grace of St. Petersburg. When Peter the Great founded the city in 1703, he hired Europe’s best architects, craftsmen and artists to build and decorate it. Spread over 100 islands linked by over 600 bridges, it is often referred to as "Venice of the North”. The morning sightseeing tour will feature the world-famous Hermitage which houses many art treasures from the Czarist era. The balance of the day is at leisure.
