Saint-Petersburg Takes Top Title at World Travel Awards 2018 as World's Leading Cultural City Destination, Third Time in a Row

 Russia's northern capital, St. Petersburg, has been named by World Travel Awards the World’s leading Cultural Destination for the 3rd consecutive year.

 

The Award is traditionally handed out by the prestigious World Travel Awards (WTA).

 

The announcement was made at 25th Annual World Travel Awards final Gala Ceremony on December 1st, 2018, in Lisbon, Portugal 

 

World Travel Awards Winner 2017


The World Travel Awards recognized St. Petersburg as the World's Leading Cultural City Destination in both 2016 and in 2017.

In 2015, the WTA jury awarded the northern city the title of Europe's leading destination.  

 

Saint Petersburg, that once again justified its rank as the Russian cultural capital, triumphed over Beijing, London, New York City, Paris, the Ecuadorian capital of Quito, Rio de Janeiro, Rome, Sydney and Venice.  

 

WTA annually awards leaders in tourism, airlines, and hotel and hospitality sectors. Ranked as the travel industry's most prestigious awards program, WTA was founded in 1993 and includes an international jury of hospitality experts and peers, mainly from the World Travel and Tourism Council.

 

Earlier this year, the city won the title of Europe's best Cruise destination. 

 

St. Petersburg, which is home to the Hermitage Museum and the Mariinsky Ballet, has been in focus of the prestigious award for its exceptionally rich history, centuries-old traditions, and bright future. 

 

The cultural capital of Russia is stunningly attractive for travelers. 

 

The city is one of the most visited by both domestic and international tourists. 

 

In 2017, Saint Petersburg was visited by 7.2 million people compared to 6.9 million tourists in the previous year, according to the latest data by the city's tourism committee.
