  • Kronstadt — the "Hub of the Universe" and the Might-Have-Been Capital of Russia

    Kronstadt is a quiet green municipal town located on the Kotlin Island to the west of St. Petersburg, full of parks, gardens and boulevards. In a way, it’s a miniature St. Petersburg, with its own Gostiny Dvor, Summer Garden, Menshikov Palace, Obvodny Canal and even its own drawbridge, which makes it an ideal place to go to on a one-day trip.
