We see how the ancient history of Russia is intertwined with the more recent one during the 18-20th centuries. We look at the history of struggle for democracy in Russia in the beautiful surroundings of baroque and classical ensembles of the Smolnyi monastery and institute, which was a headquarters of Bolshevik's revolution; and Taurida palace, which was a seat of the first Russian democratically-elected parliament.

Walk with me around the St. Petersburg's area connected with the most infamous murderess from Russia's bloody history. We start from Smolnyi monastery's iconic baroque building built by Rasstrelly during the reign of Elisabeth, who was Peter the Great's daughter born out of wedlock and who could not be an heiress to the throne, but succeeded through a coup d'etat. We'll look at the grounds, where Peter moved his family from Moscow, including his only son prince Alexy whom he later tortured and killed because of his desire to move back to old Muscovite ways of running Russia.
Taurida palace the seat of double power — provisional government, the most democratic government in Europe, that actuaaly gave women right to vote, before the rest of the world, but which was the most undecisive government in Russian’s history, because it was the only legitimate power after last tzar abdication waiting for the “assembly of the land” national body of representatives to validate its authority, which was increasingly challenged by Soviets, grass route movement, which sprang up during the first 1905 revolution to regulate strikes and economical conflicts, but was taken over by Lenin, when he proclaimed all power to the Soviets April theses.

We have been introduced to Saint Petersburg by Igor, who has guides us over the course of three days in this wonderful city. Igor is able to provide you rich details about the city, with very extensive knowledge about architecture, art and the city's history. Through the use of headphones you will be able to hear what Igor has to say, while giving yourself the opportunity to look around at your own pace. Igor is very flexible in organising the tours by adapting to your needs and wishes. Do not expect jokes or a lot of energy, but pay close attention and you will have great insight into the city. Thank you!

Very " rich" tour ; very complete ; our guide was very well informed except about the museum opening hours ... ;-) but he had so many other informations to share .. that was fine.
It is a very long day... very good shoes are requested ! but walking is such a nice way to discover the town..

I really enjoyed my tour to St Petersburg with Igor.
He was able to tailor my tour to include a comprehensive historical tour of Dostoevsky's St Petersburg.

The tour was very detailed, yet flexible.

St Petersburg is a great city with so much history, I plan to return again one day.
