St. Petersburg is one of the most beloved cities by tourists along with the capital. Coming again to the "city on the Neva", one involuntarily wonders how the local Petersburgers live in such incredible beauty. Of course, they don't spend every weekend in the Hermitage after breakfast in a cafe on Nevsky Prospekt.

Residents of the second capital rest in a completely different way, bypassing the well-trodden tourist trails.

So, if this is not your first visit to St. Petersburg, and you want to feel like a real "veteran" of the city, follow our advice.

1. If you have the means, be sure to stay at the luxurious Grand Hotel Europe, located in the city center near the railway station. The service, food, atmosphere, and location of the hotel in the center of Nevsky Prospekt are beyond praise. A more economical yet safer option is the Park Inn Hotel. You can also try mini-hotels and hostels, or rent a room without an agent. There are a lot of options.

10. If you have already been to Peterhof and Pushkinsky Park, then the best place for a long summer walk will be Elagin Island Park. Costumed balls and various events are held in the ceremonial halls of the palace, and a brass band plays at any time of the year. In the park, you can rent sports equipment or lie down on the green grassy beach.
