I'll be traveling to St. Petersburg, Russia in the summer, for a four-week language course/sight seeing.
Can Bernd tell me much about the city? Will I get stabbed? I'm white, blonde hair and blue eyes
Basically everything there is to see is on Nevsky Prospect. Stay there and you have all you need.
The Church on Spilled Blood, the Winter Palace, the tallest building in St. Petersburg whose name escapes me, the river (you should consider a river tour), several malls and shopping places, souvenir stands...
And it is very safe. St. Petersburg is probably the richest and safest city in Russia, so don't be afraid.

B-but what about Peterhof and endless commieblocks!
But if you really wish to get stapped, you surely can make it happen!
