There are many events and activities that you can experience. For instance, you can go skiing and riding a sledge with reindeers in the Leningrad region. You can skate in the city centre and also visit a special Christmas market.
During your vacation, you can also watch some ballet or opera performance in one of city theatres. Actually, would be a great idea to visit the Mariinsky or Alexandrinsky Theatres, which are among the most popular worldwide thanks to their outstanding shows.
If, by chance, you are going to be in Saint Petersburg right at the New Year night, visit the Palace Square. There’ll be the main celebration: awesome concerns, an entertaining program, fireworks. On New Year there will be many other events around the city. Likely, public transport and underground will work all night long. The best idea would be, though, to use special taxi service. When making an order, you can mention the special needs for people with limited abilities! Check possible taxi providers >
By the way, all the museums are open at Christmas and New Year season. For instance, it is possible to visit the Hermitage on a wheelchair. Check other sights you’d like to visit in the list >
