Lonely Planet St Petersburg (Travel Guide) Reviews
This was a great guidebook to bring on my recent trip to St. Petersburg for suggestions for activities/sights, food, shopping, and getting around. I read the Eyewitness and the Rick Steves' guides before I left too, and LP was by far the most comprehensive and practical. I found my own hotel online, but the book(s) was really useful for dining and for planning my time. Unless you're hiring a guide or audio guides to explain the museums and sights, I suggest also purchasing the Rick Steves' snapshot guide that covers St. Petersburg. He does an unmatched job of explaining what you see in an engaging way. If you're only visiting the one city, consider doing the digital download, so that you're not carrying around a second book the whole time just for like 90 pages or so of content.
Not nearly as good as the Rick Steve's "Snapshot" of St Petersburg, Helsinki, and Tallinn, even though it cost more, and is more than twice as many pages in a larger page size (more words per page). That is 240 pages vs 120 pages for Rick Steve's. However, it does provide more details than Rick Steves, and more options for the more adventurous traveler. I have been to St Petersburg twice already, and can actually use these extra details. For the first time visitor, buy this book for background reading AFTER you plan your trip using the Rick Steve's book.
We lived by this book and Duolingo alone. It was incredibly helpful for planning and enjoying our 5 days in St. Petersburg. We saw Swan Lake, we ate wonderful food, we learned about the history, we witnessed amazing art, we went to Dostoyevsky's neighborhood, and we gazed on the waters that make the city flow with generous people, strength and courage through time.
I went to St Petersburg o my own and book gave great tips. Even though I have traveling apps I learned some tips about the culture to avoid any mistakes.
A very flavorful look at what really makes this unique city tick.
Excellent , like all Lonely Planets.
Headed there this year. Excellent information.
