Help and advice
I can offer:Accommodation:yes show around town - have someone over for dinner

Indian summer is the most comfortable time to visit SPb. Also winters are not so frightening as they seems! :)

Interesting things to see and do where I live, my tips (please also add this to theSPb was specially built to be a capital of Russian empire. It is the most european city in our country and known as "cultural capital" of Russia. Incredible number of palaces, monuments, fountains, museums, theaters, clubs, concerts etc. Different architectural styles of XVIII-XXI centures. During the "white nights" festival period (since the end of may till the begining of july) you can watch the opening of bridges across Neva river. If you are looking for "pure original Russia" you can visit Velikiy Novgorod, Staraya Russa etc which are about 3-5 hours by bus distant.
