Visit Petersburg: in step with tourists!

25 May 2016

The official city tourist portal of the Government of St. Petersburg «Visit-Petersburg» continues to develop and pleasantly to surprise guests and residents of the Northern capital. For the last weeks the portal considerably changed – now users can "create" their travel and routes, share them with friends, plan the following vacation and write down their impressions about what they have seen in their notes.

The section "My Travel" allows to plan the trip to St. Petersburg and not to be lost among the chosen objects. The scheme is simple: create your trip; you enter exact dates, in other sections of the portal you pick up pleasant sights and events. In your private office you open "Favorites on the card" - and here you are, the routes for your travel are ready, now you only have to put in order the things you want to see depending on your stay in St. Petersburg. The map, of course, can be printed, published on social networks or send via e-mail. The created travel will remain in the private office; therefore they can always be requested or recommended to friends.

In the updated version of Visit Petersburg it is also possible to carry out bookings of flights and train tickets, hotel rooms in desired places and order taxis – direct references are available in the section "Booking" in the menu of the portal.

For those who are interested in the news from the Northern capital, it is possible to get individual material from the section "News". Latest information will regularly reach you via e-mail if you specify your address in registration.

We remind you that the official city tourist portal «Visit Petersburg» was newly started in 2015. The site and the mobile application are helpful assistants for the tourists on their trip: here you have access to the latest news from the city life, announcements of cultural events, audio guides and the biggest range of sights, accommodation facilities, restaurants and shopping centers in the city. Life of St. Petersburg doesn't stand still, and in step with it also «Visit Petersburg» moves!
