With a population exceeding five million people, Saint Petersburg is Russia's second largest city. Resting on the Neve River at the head of the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic Sea, Saint Petersburg serves as an important port in Russia. Known as the city of palaces, Saint Petersburg boasts such incredible royalties as the Winter Palace. The city has several impressive cathedrals as well as beautiful canals and bridges. Same-sex marriage is not yet legal in Russia, yet Saint Petersburg glimmers as the country's most gay-friendly city.
As Saint Petersburg, and Russia in general, are less accepting of the LGBTQ community, it is necessary to pay extra attention in terms of the gay accommodation you select.
