Summary Classical Destinations explores Europe's most spectacular cities and landscapes while revelling in the great classical music composed within them.

In the series finale, Classical Destinations returns to St Petersburg to meet and review some significant figures in its history: Pushkin, Catherine the Great and Rasputin.
