Our Russian courses in St Petersburg provide an extraordinary cultural and linguistic experience to anyone who wishes to discover the Magnificent Imperial Capital.
Welcome to St Petersburg!
Hauntingly beautiful, St. Petersburg captures a time in Russian history when it was a glittering European metropolis.
Long straight boulevards, vast crystalline squares, beautiful gardens and parks, spectacular palaces, cathedrals and monuments still grace the canals and their granite embankments.
In 1703, Peter the Great held the vision for his new Russian capital to be built on the marshy forestland of the Neva Delta, and within a very short time it had successfully become his “window to Europe”.
Architects, artists, entrepreneurs and scientists from all over Europe flocked to the capital creating the gigantic open-air museum that now greets the visitor to St. Petersburg.
The beauty of St Petersburg lies in the harmony of its architectural styles with baroque, classicist, eclectic and art nouveau all superbly enhanced by the surrounding waterways.
Reclaiming its title as Russia’s capital of culture, modern day St Petersburg offers a wonderful array of cultural activities including ballet, opera, concerts, theatre, cinema, galleries, nightclubs, restaurants and international festivals.
This is an amazing time to visit and be a witness of modern Russia, making St Petersburg an incredible destination to learn Russian in Russia.
