St. Petersburg isn't considered Russia's cultural capital for nothing. It is here where artists and musicians head in order to seek their fortune and many of the city's best drinking venues are also stages for concerts, art exhibitions and poetry readings. Of course St. Petersburg is famous for its royal pedigree and much of the grandeur of Imperial Russia can be glimpsed through classic performaces of the Mariinsky Opera and Ballet, or at the legendary 'Stars of the White Nights Festival'.
Whatever kind of event rocks your proverbial boat you're bound to find something you like in St. Petersburg. Be it a big name rock concert, an all night rave, a top theatre festival or an avant garde art exhibition, this city of nearly five million people unsurprisingly offers a little of everything. You can browse through the venues in our culture section for ideas or check out our monthly events listings above, where we bring you some forthcoming highlights.
