Historical tour – St Petersburg

Happy New Year from St Petersburg! From St Isaac’s Cathedral to the central Cathedral on the Spilt Blood, for a city only 300 years old, it is extraordinary that the former capital should have such a wealth and diversity of historical buildings. On this week’s “Venice of the North” program, Martyn Andrews brings in the New Year by highlighting the top historical spots, such as the canals, the river and the Peter and Paul Fortress.
