We hardly ever see deals to St Petersburg, a city described by Fodor's as one of "golden spires and gilded domes, of pastel palaces and candlelit cathedrals". Stays at the 5-star Corinthia St Petersburg hotel are now available from £82 (99.50€) per night until 30 December as part of the Corinthia 2013 sale.
Save 50% on the best-available room-only rates with this deal, which has a 2-night minimum stay.
The hotel is part of the Great Hotels of the World collection and is recommended by Condé Nast Traveller, which praises its restaurants and "old Russian style". Set in two restored 19th-century buildings on the main street, designed by Peter the Great, it is home to the Imperial Restaurant serving traditional Russian fare, two bars and a fitness centre.
Attractions such as the State Hermitage Museum, the distinctive Church of Our Savior on Spilled Blood and the Peter and Paul Fortress are all within walking distance.
Book by 20 February.
