Considered by many as one of the world's most picturesque cities, St. Petersburg has all the ingredients for an unforgettable experience: art, lavish architecture, an extraordinary history and rich cultural traditions; but also a modern bohemian side including edgy art galleries and delectable dining. The Historic Centre of Saint Petersburg and Related Group of Monuments is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The River Neva flows through much of the city centre, and the Extreme 40s will race in front of the Saint Peter and Saint Paul cathedral, located inside the Peter and Paul Fortress, the first and oldest landmark in Saint Petersburg, considered the birthplace of the city.
