Saint Petersburg boasts that it has more green space than Paris, and while I'm no judge of that, I can tell you for sure that there is no lack of wonderful parks in the city. One of my personal favorites is the Field of Mars, a park which doubles as a graveyard for the heroes of the 1917 revolution, and which has also served as a giant vegetable garden for a brief time.

The park takes its name from the Roman god of war because it was used by the army or military parades during the reign of Peter the Great. There isn't much going on in the park, but it is a pleasant place where you can hang out when the weather is nice. It is popular with teenagers, so the park can be pretty lively sometimes.

St. Petersburg at Night No visit to a major city is complete without experiencing its nightlife. St. Petersburg is no exception.
