A look at how art has been used to enhance prestige and power in St Petersburg.
Art historians Dr Janina Ramirez and Alastair Sooke take us on three entertaining and revealing cultural city breaks. These are the cities that tourists visit in their droves, queuing for the main attractions and beating a well-worn path around the cobbles, boulevards and plazas. However, by veering off the beaten track, our two intrepid presenters can reveal cornerstones of a city's story. These are stories of power, rivalry, and subversion, packed into one exciting day and culminating in a glittering performance as the sun sets.
