One-day City Highlights Active tour is ideal if you want to squeeze the maximum out of your short stay. First, head 20 miles out of the city to parks in Peterhof with a host of glittering golden fountains (see a bit of countryside on the way). Than plunge into the world art and listen to the stories of the Romanovs in the state rooms of the Winter Palace, and top up your experience with photogenic not-to-be-missed onion-domed Spilled Blood Church.
