By Olga Glioza for The Culture Trip on Jan 16, 2018

St Petersburg is a city of rooftop lovers: stunning views of the landmarks give a great reason for this. Perhaps predictably, this has inspired the creation of the whole bunch of rooftop bars and restaurants, which truly have a view worth checking out. These are some of the best in town.

MAKARONNIKI

Situated on the top floor of the business center, Makaronniki offers three elements which will make you stay a while and keep coming back: Italian cuisine, great cocktails, and a stunning view. The place is great both in summer and winter, although in the warmer months you can truly enjoy the enormous terrace while sipping a glass of Prosecco.
