Россия — это не только гоголевская птица-тройка и маковки церквей, это еще и грозные залпы крейсера «Авроры», твердо заявившие всей планете: «первой в истории человечества социалистической революции — быть!»

Революция вызревала в тусклых казематах Петропавловской крепости. В разное время здесь успели побывать революционеры всех сословий: от аристократов-декабристов, не испугавшихся Сибири и виселицы, лишь бы освободить крепостных крестьян, до столярского сына Максима Горького, участника марксистских кружков и великого пролетарского писателя. Не удивительно, что мозговой центр Октября, штаб большевиков, находился прямо напротив крепости — в особняке балерины Матильды Ксешинской. С балкона особняка, глядя на людское море, Ленин провозгласил знаменитый лозунг: «Вся власть советам!».

Great tour. In 2 hours you see the first stations built on line 1. It goes beyond the superficial architecture to explain the meaning and reasoning behind it and provide a very interesting picture of 20th century Russian history and culture, including the Revolution, the Siege of Leningrad, Soviet values, industrialization and others. Vladimir explains all this in detail, covering things that would be easily missed otherwise. You also see a couple of construction details affected by the Cold War. Fascinating.

Awesome. Vladimir came prepared with maps, print-outs, old photos, quotes from the novel and from the press of the period, providing excellent background to a fascinating 2-hour tour. Vladimir's narration revolves around the life of Dostoyevsky and the plot of the novel. You will get most out of it if you are familiar with "Crime and Punishment", but the tour is cleverly designed in such a way, that you will enjoy it and learn from it even if you have not read the book. Highly recommended!

Владимир - очень обязательный человек: перезвонил накануне экскурсии и уточнил, все ли остается в силе. Причем экскурсия была частично оплачена заранее, подтверждение о ее проведении было получено на электронную почту. Он ждал, как и оговаривалось, у станции Автово с табличкой. Экскурсия оказалась познавательной и нескучной, понравилась старшему возрастному поколению. Рекомендую не только гостям Петербурга, но и тем жителям, которым интересен свой город.

Vladimir is a great host and is very knowledgeable about the city and the metro stations. He really helped me understand the essence of the beauty of these stations. The tour is really remarkable and totally worth it. And Vladimir is very accomodating and very helpful (he helped me catch a bus to Peterhof at the end of the tour as well).

Thanks you Vladimir for giving me this tour. I thoroughly enjoyed it and got some really nice pictures. :)

St Petersburg is a fantastic city - full of history, politics...and great tour guides! Vladimir was a wonderful guide, showing us the highlights of Soviet architecture. Both his Metro Palaces and Futuristic Buildings tours were fascinating - way beyond the banal information offered by bog-standard guidebooks. He was engaging, well-prepared and passionate about his subject. Thanks for making sure we'll never forget our trip to St Petersburg!

Vladimir.....I can't imagine our trip to St petersburg being complete without meeting you and visiting the metro palaces. You did a wonderful job exposing us to the beauty and art housed deep below the city. You knowledge of history and the relationship of the metro stations was so educational. Thanks for adding such a unique adventure to our visit. Everyone coming to St p should take your tour
