We are making our 1st trip to St Petersburg. As you might guess there are over 25 excursions being offered. Can anyone give me a "Top Ten" list of what's to not be missed?

We are visiting St. Petersburg for the first time for 3 days too on the Aug.2 Stockholm to Copenhagen cruise on the Serenity(6318).

I have already booked the Crystal excursions on-line, but I would also like to hear opinions & recommendations from those who have taken them before.

In Stockholm I recommend the Vasa Museum and visiting the Palace. In St. Petersburg there's so much to do. The Hermitage, Menshikov Palace, any of the exclusive music performances, the Palaces of the Czars and Church of the Spilled Blood are all great places to see.
