St. Petersburg, Russia
Founded by Peter the Great in 1703, this majestic canal city dubbed the Venice of the North was the imperial capital for 200 years and remains Russia’s artistic center. This is where Fabergé eggs were bejeweled, Russian classical ballet moves perfected, and all kinds of tsarist treasures amassed. A folk music concert, tours of the gilded Hermitage Museum and former palaces, and visits to cathedrals or Jewish heritage sites are among the nearly 80 free shore excursions available when you experience St. Petersburg with Regent Seven Seas Cruises. Not only that, but the 12-night to London itinerary also participates in the cruise line’s Club Mariner Youth Program, which tailors enriching activities to kids from age five to 17.
