Up to today, we've been sharing our experience, tips, and information that we believe are useful and essential for anyone wishing to travel to St Petersburg.

Why? Because people want to read YOUR stories and see YOUR photos!

There are many things you can tell us about, for example, you could tell...

  • How you spent your time in St. Petersburg and where you went;
  • What made your trip to St. Petersburg so special;
  • What you found interesting;
  • Your favorite cultural sight, place, shop, hotel, café, or restaurant?

  • Your tips, any good info, people you met, funny stories, etc.

Share whatever you want. This page is for you, by you so please get involved! But, before starting to submit your amazing story, please read below a few rules we've written.

  • Your story should be about St. Petersburg Russia only;
  • Write around 700 words. Much less is too short for a page and much more is just... too long;
  • Please include 1-3 photos that are relevant to what you're writing. Each photo should be under 200Kb or you won't be able to upload it. Don't forget the caption!
  • No links please (although we'll give the URL to your personal blog), no religion, nothing hateful or unethical, no disguised advertorials, no stories that have been published elsewhere, and no sales pitches for products or businesses;
  • Include your name and email so we can get back to you if we have any questions.

We want to keep this section for travelers, by travelers - not for advertisers or people plugging their products.
