In St. Petersburg, it doesn’t really matter what the weather is doing outside, because it’s always warm inside Piterland Aquapark. Spend the day relaxing and having fun, taking full advantage of the park’s pools, waterslides, and saunas. Or, just lounge around under a palm tree on the artificial beach.
Set on the shores of the Baltic Sea, Piterland Aquapark offers great views with a big bonus: it’s always 88°F (31°C) inside. Splash around in the pools and zoom down the slides, then head to the spa. Ticket prices vary according to the time of day—in general, mornings and weekdays are cheaper.
