Whenever Russia comes up in conversation, honeymooning is not the first thing that comes to mind. But this beautiful country has so much to offer newlyweds seeking to make their honeymoon a time to remember.
Luxury travel agent suggests that couples need to make their way to Russia’s second largest city, St. Petersburg. The euro-themed boulevards, symbolic places of interest and museums, and delightful Old World hotels that are definitely made for Russian royalty are sure to entice any couple to spend some of their most memorable moments here.
St. Petersburg has the makings of a great honeymoon destination, let’s explore it some more.
Where to Stay
Start the honeymoon right by staying in the five-star Hotel Astoria with rooms looking out to the golden dome of St. Isaac’s Cathedral. Places like the Hermitage and Opera House are mere steps away.
This historic hotel was made even more famous because of its role in the classic Bond movie “Golden Eye”. Famous celebs like Madonna, The Doors, and the iconic Rolling Stones are just some of its famous clientele.
What to Do
Step out of your suite and descend the grand winding staircase for that postcard-worthy shot and hang out in the hotel lounge where you can enjoy a sampling of Vodka together with three kinds of caviar paired with blinis with all the fixings.
Couples can indulge themselves with a real taste of Russian cuisine at the Astoria Restaurant.
After a hearty meal, take a stroll along canals lined with aristocratic mansions. The 342 bridges that come alive at night cross the canals at different points. This is why the city of St. Petersburg, built on some 100 islands, is known as the Venice of the North.
This alone should make couples fall on love with this city.
Traces of the czars can be found everywhere with former imperial palaces turned museums housing artefacts. A must visit the site in St. Petersburg is the famous Church of Our Saviour of the Spilled Blood with its famous candy-coloured onion domes.
When strolls and site visits have become tiring, couples can take a sip of culture and take a trip to the ballet. “The Nutcracker” performed in one of Russia’s oldest opera houses, the Mikhailovsky Theatre is surely a show not to be missed.
It may take weeks to really explore St. Petersburg and take in all the interesting sites and sample everything it has to offer, but one thing is for certain, a honeymoon destination in St. Petersburg is a truly memorable experience couples will be reminiscing for the rest of their lives. So what are you waiting for? Check to see if hotels bookings are available on your chosen honeymoon date with your luxury travel agent.
