St. Petersburg Rated a Top Tourist Destination

TripAdvisor, the world's largest travel information web site, has announced the winners of its Travelers' Choice Awards, with St. Petersburg scoring a surprise victory as the seventh-best European destination.

The winners were determined by a combination of travelers' comments and the overall popularity of destinations on the company's web site.

Unsurprisingly, Paris, Rome and London took the top three slots.

TripAdvisor gathers travel information on destinations worldwide, relying heavily on comments from travelers.

The entire list of best European destinations:

1. Paris, France

2. Rome, Italy

3. London, England

4. Barcelona, Spain

5. Prague, Czech Republic

6. Venice, Italy

7. St. Petersburg, Russia

8. Florence, Italy

9. Edinburgh, Scotland

10. Istanbul, Turkey

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
