Travelling to Saint Petersburg (Russia)?

Saint Petersburg is "the other city" that tourists to Russia must see. For decades it was called Leningrad but in 1990 it received its original name before the revolution. All tourists will spend at least a little time at the world famous art gallery "The Hermitage", with more paintings of international artists than anywhere else (incl. The Louvre).

In spring (March-April) there are the "white nights" thanks to its Northern Location (same as Oslo or Stockholm).

The mighty Russian Federation has invaded it's neighbour Ukraine in Eastern Europe on 24-Feb-2022. Thousands of people died and millions are fled the killing, use of violence and destruction. Many economic and cultural sanctions plus boycotts have followed. For moral, practical and safety reasons we should NOT travel to Russia or Belarus till further notice.
