In early 90’s the common property was privatised by newly formed oligarchy. So both industrial building and historical houses belonged for years to the narrow group of people who had not many ideas of new functions for them. It turned out into plenty of abandoned or unused space in the modern center. Since 2012 more and more young entrepreneurs use this space following Western trends with Russian specific. Does any investor come to art scene? Where do we meet censorship or discrimination? Is it easy to run your own bar, coffee shops, showroom or craft workshop in the second biggest city in Russia? Let’s see how it works and discuss political and cultural aspects and try to find something unique behind the global trends. I'm Olya...

What a great experience. You are in a foreign culture and you want to get to know what's really going on in a field that interests you; what could be better than a personal guide who is knowledgeable, enthusiastic and a great communicator in your own language. This tour, thanks to Olya, did all that and more. She invites questions and takes you to places and people you would never otherwise discover. If you want to see past the splendours of St Petersburgs past and get some experience of its vibrant and creative present, nothing could be better. The practicalities of this online process work very well too. Thanks Olya and Sputnik8.

Unlike the famous attractions in St. Petersburg, this is a "real" contact with the life of creative people and their small businesses. Olya is an experienced insider, who has worked in this field for years and therefore the most knowledgeable person to show these spaces. She has a passion for what she is doing. During the tour she was extremely friendly and full of energy. She also provided us with links and suggestions about visiting some places later by our selves. If you want a "real" and off-the-beaten-track experience, then this tour is for you. Highly recommended!

Olga's tour is awesome. She showed us around a lot of alternative spaces in Saint Petersburg you wouldn't be able to see as a normal tourist - even most locals don't know about them: Artist spaces, squatted areas, fashion and design shops in backyards as well as the city's first vegan burger place. Olga not only shows the places, but can provide all the background infos on how each space was established, what the political implications are and what they mean for Saint Petersburg. With her charme and humour walking around the city with Olga is a big pleasure!

Olya is a great tour guide! She showed us places that we never would have found on our own in St. Petersburg, and introduced us to the fascinating art scene. She is very knowledgeable about the art scene, and all sorts of events going in in the area connected with it. Very soon after the tour she sent out links to the places we visited, as well as additional information that we discussed on the tour. She's very friendly and interested in getting to know you. This was a great tour and I'm glad we got to see some of these spots.

Olga was a great tour guide. She introduced me to some of the creative places and movements in Saint Petersburg and described the causes/initiatives for which they were founded. Her English was superb. I would recommend taking her tour if you want to see a side of St. Petersburg you might not expect and get to know some exciting developments which are in store!

We loved our tour with Olya. She showed us places we would not have been able to find by ourselves. Her knowledge of creative spaces is extraordinary. We really enjoyed our time with her. Also, she gave us some great tips for the rest of our time in Saint Petersburg and also in Moscow. Can not recommend highly enough.

This was a very nice tour. Olga is so involved into everything going on that you really get a taste of the "alternative" life in Petersburg. Highly recommended. Also the process/ contact etc. is very straight forward.

I'm Olya. I'm not a tour guide but an activist relating with creative spaces and modern culture scene since 2012, now an ideologist of civic education project ‘Trava’. For the FIFA World Cup period I started a civic campaign 'Cup for People' (http://cupforpeople.spb.ru/).

The tour is flexible according to the weather, your interests and events happening in the places. We might see the oldest art-center squatted by underground artists and musicians in early 90's, 10 year old space in the former bread factory, designers spot and modern creative spaces. I'll tell the last history of creative spaces, recommend some design shops and cozy cafe and bars. We can visit some exhibitions and sometimes events, try local streetfood. I'd give you extra contacts and recommendations based on your interest. So I'll be your local guide in the scene. And we'd discuss politics, globalization and try to find something unique behind the global trends.

Dear tourists, I can't be available every day to host a tour so please don't pay for it until I confirm it with a customized (not automatic) letter.

You can also use my map: http://trava.education/creativespaces.
