5.0 out of 5 stars St Petersburg in the round., 6 Sep 2011
This review is from: The Companion Guide to St Petersburg (Companion Guides) (Paperback)
This is the ultimate "guide" to this fascinating city. Here you find the city described from its foundation by Peter the Great through its turbulent history, its growth as Russia's outlet to the west, and as a bastion against Russia's enemies. Once it was capital of Russia, now it is a dazzling assembly of magnificent palaces and museums.
This book is not your run of the mill tourist guide -- it is so much more. If you want to know and understand St Petersburg, and to get the most from a visit there, this is the book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous, 17 Sep 2013
This review is from: The Companion Guide to St Petersburg (Companion Guides) (Paperback)
Accessible, comprehensive and highly enjoyable covering history, architecture and culture in a compelling way - it was indeed my companion throughout my visit. I read chunks of it out to others and it is the only "guidebook" I will pack next time I go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looking Forward to my Visit There, 21 May 2013

This review is from: The Companion Guide to St Petersburg (Companion Guides) (Paperback)
So much to see in so little a time but the book looks a helpful guide. Must have been interesting living there when it was 'at is prime/place to visit'.

This review is from: The Companion Guide to St Petersburg (Companion Guides) (Paperback)
written by someone who has an intimate knowledge and love of a fascinating city, this is a good read as well as providing the perfect complement and background to any visit to the city. this has to be the best guide to the city, in terms of what made it what it is (if that's what you want from a guidebook) that there is.
