St. Petersburg - Russia’s window to West
One of the world's most beautiful cities, St. Petersburg founded by Peter the
Great in 1703 has all the ingredients for an unforgettable travel experience:
high art, lavish architecture, wild nightlife, an extraordinary history and
rich cultural traditions that have inspired and nurtured some of the modern
world's greatest literature, music, and visual art. From the mysterious
twilight of the White Nights to world-beating opera and ballet productions on
magical winter evenings, St. Petersburg charms and entices in every season.
For centuries St. Petersburg was “a window to Europe” for Russians. Today the
city is a gateway to Russia for us.
St. Petersburg is a city of infinite charm with its majestic palaces, churches
and cathedrals, river embankments, beautiful parks and innumerable bridges - a
city of imperial proportions and romantic vistas - which has been a source of
inspiration to generations of artists. One of the pleasures of travelling is
shopping. Everything can be found on Nevsky Prospekt, the 5 km long main
street of the city: international fashion, furs, cosmetics, porcelain,
crystal, traditional souvenirs, caviar, vodka and Russian champagne.

Tallinn - the capital of a Baltic Republic
Tallinn is the capital of Estonia, one of the three Baltic Republics which
regained independence in 1991 after the Soviet regime. Like most cities with
an eight-hundred-year-old past, Tallinn is a patchwork of historic areas. The
city´s pride and joy is without a doubt its Medieval Old Town with twisting
cobblestone lanes and iron street lamps, the Gothic spires and medieval
markets. Cappuccino and Wi-Fi. This is the city's famous Old Town. The fact
that it's all neatly packaged within a mostly-intact city wall and dotted with
guard towers gives it an extra dose of fairy-tale charm. If you're looking for
that mix of historic ambience and cutting-edge culture that defines Tallinn,
you'll find it here.
