I went to Russia for the World Cup 2018, my first stop was Moscow, second stop was Saint Petersburg, third Sochi. It is extremely beautiful, it is the second largest city of Russia, Architecturally, it ranks as one of the most fabulous cities of Europe. One of the most important things to do when in S.P., is going to the Peterhof Palace, you will be amazed by it´s gardens going inside is definitely recommended. In there you’ll feel like a royal.
Peterhof palace was the summer residence of the Russian monarchs.
