Accessible sights of Saint Petersburg

Honestly, Russia is not among the most wheelchair accessible countries.

However, many large cities like Saint Petersburg and Moscow have necessary ramps and elevators in some locations and sights. The situation with arranging special services and tools in St Petersburg is special, as many of city attractions are considered the National Heritage of Russia and, thereby, can not be reconstructed. Still some of them are accessible, including:

  • Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood
  • Peter and Paul Fortress and Cathedral
  • Faberge museum
  • Peterhof
  • Saint Isaac’s Cathedral
  • State Hermitage Museum
  • Catherine Palace in Tsarskoe Selo
  • Mariinsky Theatre
