Flights to St. Petersburg

Fly to St. Petersburg and explore Russia’s historic window on the west. Despite being founded barely 300 years ago, St. Petersburg is one of Europe’s most spectacular historic cities, with a collection of palaces, theatres, churches and grand avenues that make many other European art capitals look rather modest.

Flights to St. Petersburg are also a good starting point for discovering the city’s little-known region. Just outside the city is Peterhof, Peter’s lavish summer palace overlooking the Baltic, while in the forests to the south is Gatchina, a sprawling castle built for one of Catherine the Great’s lovers. Wild Lake Ladoga almost touches St. Petersburg’s suburbs, its waters containing the monastery island of Valaam.
