Spend your winter holiday in Saint Petersburg

It is soon time for winter holidays in Finland and for students to enjoy the delights of winter. We are glad to offer an alternative for the traditional skiing trip to the mountains as we invite you to the magical winter of Saint Petersburg.
 
Here the cultural season is at its peak with multiple exhibitions and theatre shows while the nightclubs are full of joy and performances of famous DJ's. You can see the lively paintings of Klimt, Van Gogh and Aivazovsky or make a virtual journey to the past in well know Hermitage museum. In addition, of course, you can go and see world famous ballets in the Mikhailovsky and Mariinsky theatres. Until the end of March, you can see masterpieces of Modigliani and artists of Montparnasse in the Faberge museum. You can go ice-skating on the rink in New Holland – the island at the heart of the city was inaccessible to visitors until the start of the century, but now it is a home to many creative platforms. Do not miss your chance to walk around the unbelievably beautiful historical center. Fall in love with the magical frozen Neva River and warm up after the walk by drinking tea from a Russian samovar.
 
Stay at one of our Sokos Hotels in St. Petersburg and you will be in the middle of everything what is happening in the city. Hotels of the Finnish chain are located close to the main sights of the city, museums and galleries, and they are equipped with everything you need for a comfortable and fulfilling holiday. Scandinavian design, large beds, excellent breakfast and staff, who are always ready to show the Finnish hospitality.
