Known as Russia’s Window to the West, the beautiful cultural city of St. Petersburg is at the crossroads of old and new traditions. Decades of economic and political transformation have inspired a buzzing intellectual scene. Easily navigable by foot, bus, or metro, the city offers an array of venues for theater, pop music, dance, art, and sports. St. Petersburg's ribbons of canals spanned by over 1,000 bridges has earned it the title of the Venice of the North. Join organized museum visits, boat tours, group cooking classes, Matryoshka doll painting classes, concerts, and field trips throughout the country. You can also gain uniquely immersive international experience volunteering at the Red Cross, art galleries, or NGOs.
