St. Petersburg - the famous "Venice of the North" - is considered one of Russia's greatest historical and cultural treasures. Virtually unharmed by the period of Stalinist reconstruction, downtown St. Petersburg is a protected UNESCO World Heritage site, with Baroque imperial palaces, impressive historical monuments, and a network of canals, bridges, and tree-lined avenues.
Homestays with local families advance student language skills and promote further integration into local culture.
