Built on a desolate swamp as a showcase capital of Imperial Russia, this grand city has certainly lived up to the expectations of its founder, Tsar Peter the Great.
You'll get in some beach time at Kronshtadt City Beach and Natural Sanctuary Komarovskiy Bereg. Visiting Golden Beach and Dyuny Beach will get you outdoors. Next up on the itinerary: admire the striking features of Nevsky Prospekt, kick back and relax at Beach of Peter and Paul Fortress, soak in style at Turkish baths, and take in the exciting artwork at Art Gallery Cherdak Khudozhnika.

You'll lose 6 hours traveling from Rio de Janeiro to St. Petersburg due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Rio de Janeiro in January, things will get much colder in St. Petersburg: highs are around -5°C and lows about -10°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 21st (Mon) so you can travel back home.
