Lufthansa (01 844 5544; lufthansa.ie) flies from Dublin to St Petersburg via Frankfurt. Fares from €252 return.

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; roccofortehotels.com) is one of the most splendid.

Double rooms with breakfast start at €250.

• The Corinthia (+7 812 380 2001 corinthia.com) 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.
