Owing to the numerous channels and sumptuous buildings, the city of Peter the Great is also called "Venice of the North". The Hermitage Museum, located in the magnificent complex of the Winter Palace, keeps one of the world's largest art collections. Perhaps the best time to enjoy the sumptuous palaces is summertime, when, due to the longer days known as "white nights", you can enjoy its beauty for longer hours.
