After six days in St Petersburg, I’ve only scratched the surface of what Russia is like. I am under no illusion that you can get to know a country this big and diverse by visiting just one city. But it is a great introduction to Russia and I leave hungry for more.
Not often have I visited a country where I find its history this fascinating. St Petersburg is a modern city that in many ways will remind you of certain European cities, but its history is everywhere.
