St. Petersburg is among the most beautiful cities in the world. It is located on more than 100 islands, where the river Neva flows into the Gulf of Finland. The city was founded in 1703 by the Tsar Peter I as a new capital of the Russian Empire and kept this status till 1918. The city has 4.6 million inhabitants and is the northernmost among the world large cities. Its historic centre constitutes a UNESCO World Heritage Site. June and early July in St. Petersburg is a period of short and light nights called "White Nights" and is the best time to visit the city.
