Suburbs of St. Petersburg

Day-trips to some of St. Petersburg's greatest attractions.

While St. Petersburg itself has more than enough to keep visitors entertained and absorbed for countless days of sightseeing, the city's surroundings are also rich in places of interest, from spectacular Imperial Estates that showcase the extravagance and opulent tastes of the Romanov Tsars to relics of Northern Russia's medieval principalities, which provide a charming contrast to the more ornate treasures of St. Petersburg. Our out-of-town sightseeing guide provides full travel information as well as in-depth descriptions of the history and architecture of the finest day-trip destinations from St. Petersburg.

Vyborg, St. Petersburg, Russia Vyborg
Just 30km from the Finnish border, Vyborg was fought over for centuries, which explains its splendid 13th century castle. Other sights of interest include Monrepos, one of Russia's finest landscape gardens, and the charming Old Town.  ›››

Shlisselburg (Oreshek), St. Petersburg, Russia Shlisselburg (Oreshek)
An island fortress at the outflow of Lake Ladoga, Shlisselburg dates back to the 14th century, and became one of Tsarist Russia's most infamous prisons. Despite its grim past, the ruins of the fortress are well worth exploring.  ›››
