Staying there

• St Petersburg's luxury hotels often feel like extensions of its palaces – all gold leaf and brocade. The Hotel Astoria (0039 007 812 494 5757; is one of the most splendid.

Double rooms with breakfast start at €250.

• The Corinthia (+7 812 380 2001 is slightly more affordable yet still very chic. Expect clean-lined furniture and plush textures in buttery leather. This is Russia, so you'll still get your glam with caviar for breakfast. Doubles are from €219.
