Instaspots in St. Petersburg

After Russia has introduced the electronic visa to St. Petersburg. I have decided to go there right away (For more e-visa regime check out here).

I was surprised to discover there are so many beautiful places to have pictures. Since Russia is still less visited than most European countries, most of the time, these spots are empty or scarce in visitors.

Here are my top 10 places to visit in St. Petersburg!

1.Winter Palace

Winter palace or so-called Hermitage, is a UNESCO heritage site.

Just over the bridge on the other side, you can find the famous Mosque of St. Petersburg

The Grand Mosque, unfortunately, was not open during the time of the visit, but the exterior is definitely worth a visit. The specific location of the picture was taken here

 

3. Chesme Church

It was a one-hour journey from the city center of Chesme Church. From outside, it looks like a big candy store.

The precise location is behind the Smolny Cathedral

 

5. Smolny Cathedral

I discovered this place accidentally on Google Maps once I was scrolling through pictures of Saint Petersburg. I was lucky to have snow during the wintertime. It made the whole place extremely picturesque

To get there, it is better to take a bus, search on google maps for the best connection and bus tracking. It really works well in Russia.

The blog will be updated according to my Instaspots! Keep tuned!
