About

Few cities offer the stunning attractions of St. Petersburg, City of the Tsars. Created by Peter the Great as his “Window on Europe,” St. Petersburg is often referred to as the Venice of the north as it combines its Russian heritage with a European outlook. As one of the world’s architectural treasures, the city provides a backdrop filled with gold-domed cathedrals and Baroque palaces, museums, and ornate government buildings all of which seem to flow into the canals and waterways that divide the city. The natural beauty of the city is enhanced in June and July as the city experiences “White Nights,” a blending of twilight into dawn giving the city almost 24 hours of daylight.  The program offers excursions to several of the palaces and stately homes of Russian tsars that surround the city including Peterhoff, a magnificent palace with fountains flowing down to the Baltic, and Catherine’s Palace with its renowned amber room. Experience the music, art, literature, good food and great entertainment offered by this splendid city, St. Petersburg, Russia. The host for the St. Petersburg Study Abroad program is Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I57P6KzL9BA, which is one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in Russia. Some classes on the program will be taught by the faculty of St. Peterburg Polytechnic University in English. VSU students will also have a chance of taking classes alongside other international students.
