Sunshine, cars, celebrities... these are just a few of the things that define Los Angeles. But as any visitor to this expansive Southern California city will tell you, it's a place with seemingly infinite possibilities. There's downtown, with Crypto.com Arena, Walt Disney Concert Hall, and Olvera Street. There's Hollywood, with its Walk of Fame, maps to the stars' homes and palm-tree lined boulevards. There's Santa Monica, with its pier, shopping and ocean breezes.
A Russian jewel on the Baltic Sea, St. Petersburg was founded by Peter the Great, but named after the Saint. There's plenty to fascinate visitors to this most cultured and European of Russian destinations, from the expansive Hermitage Museum to spectacular palaces and cathedrals.
