With that said, here are a couple of reasons why Saint Petersburg is culturally important, and why it is one of the most beautiful cities in the world

  • Saint Petersburg is Russia’s cultural capital
    Although it is not an official title, Saint Petersburg is recognized by the general public as the cultural capital of Russia. The city is home to thousands of museums, including one of the biggest museums and the world famous the Hermitage. Its historic center is a world heritage site recognized by UNESCO. These alone make the city’s claim to be a cultural capital credible.
    Throughout history, Saint Petersburg is a gathering place and even home to many different artists and cultural artifacts. Arts, theater, science, music, dance, and architecture were bred and improved in the city and visiting its museums will certainly make you believe that. Not only is it the center of Russian culture, but it is also considered by many to be one of the most cultural cities in the world.
  • Historical journey
    Saint Petersburg was Russia’s capital city on two different time periods. First in 1712 until Peter II moved the capital to Moscow in 1728, and again 4 years later. It remained the country’s capital for almost 2 centuries until the fall of the Russian empire at the hands of the revolution in 1918.
    Throughout the history of Saint Petersburg, it has been given several different names. Interestingly, its current name wasn’t coined after Tsar Peter, but after his patron saint, St. Peter. During the first world war era, it was renamed to Petrograd or “Peter’s city” for the sake of removing any German undertones in the name. It was again renamed to Leningrad after the death of Vladimir Lenin in 1924. In 1991, it reverted back to its original name and is called Saint Petersburg in English.
  • An open-air museum
    Due to the city’s architectural buildings with elaborate artistic designs and fresh natural landscape, the city of Saint Petersburg is often regarded as an “open-air museum”. Walking the streets of Saint Petersburg feels like walking on a massive museum with sights to behold that is seen nowhere else in the world.
