A day-long exploration of forts and docks of Kronstadt, an authentic suburb with a rich history, and once the largest naval fortress of the Baltic sea. Abandoned docks, picturesque old fortifications located in the middle of a coastal reserve and an on-demand seaside picnic as a reward of a day's worth of walking and climbing across the living history of Russian military genius.

A day-long exploration of Kronstadt, a historical suburb of Saint-Petersburg and the largest naval fortress of the Baltic sea. A town of officers, scientists, clergy and merchants, Kronstadt will capture your heart without you noticing it with its impressive docks and canals, authentic green streetscape, romantic ruins and a wonderful view on Neo-Byzantine Naval Cathedral built about a century ago. We will climb into a huge dry dock and explore a network of hydraulic installations in the historical center of Kronstadt (with a glimpse upon other scenic parts of town, of course) and then travel to other two abandoned forts located in a forest reserve in the western part of the island. An on-demand seaside picnic at Fort Reef and a charming overlook of Neva Bay from the dam that connects Kronstadt to the mainland will be a bonus.

Ce voyage de longue durée nous amenera à Kronstadt, une bainlieue la plus éloignée de Saint-Pétersbourg, autrefois la base navale majeure de la Russie et une ville authentique des officiers marins, des ingénieurs et du clergé. Nous parlerons aussi de son histoire tragique lors des années de la Révolution. Les paysages pittoresques du vieux port et de la ville, un dock de radoub immense, deux immences forts abandonnés situés au milieu du parc naturel à l'ouest de l'île et la splendide Cathédrale Navale seront une récompense digne d’un long trajet en mini-bus. Un piquenique sur le quai (à la demande) et une belle vue de la digue qui relie l’île au continenent feront un bonus non négligeable.

We were looking for something different, and we had it! :) Despite a crap weather that day, Arsene managed to guide us through hidden city gems that we would have never seen by ourselves, without his help. And kept us captivated from the beginning til the end! It was a outta beaten trails tour. And having extra available time on both sides, we extended the tour by an hour to also explore the most beautiful metro stations from St Petersburg. Highly recommended to anyone willing to have a different view on the nice city. Thks again Arsene for being our guide that Sunday! ;) Cheers from Didier & Dez. :) {excellent english & french spoken too}

Amazing tour! We had a rough start to the day and almost canceled. We are so happy that we didn't. Arsene is a wonderful guide! He was very informative and accommodating. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in architectural history, urban decay or if you just want to get out of the tourist hot spots.

Arsene is an exceptionally well qualified, knowledgeable, interesting, friendly, professional guide that we recommend warmly. His wide range of deep, precise knowledge, attentive ear to all questions, personal involvement and evident love of his city made his tour a true pleasure for us both. Erling and Linn, Norway.

It was really good experiment with an expert guide. The weather was really icy, but it's normal in January. It gave an additional atmosphere to this amazing square and this old-time factory. The guide gave a lot of detail and information of the history of the architecture and the factory. It was a real pleasure! And it's a good opportunity to take so nice pictures.
