About the tour on

We will walk in the park and see a beautiful garden and park ensemble as well as an amazing palace of the 18th century. We'll visit real Russian forests, look at the river Neva and reach the Gulf of Finland. We will have a look at the local inhabitants — squirrels, ducks, swans, deer, not even leaving the park territory.

You will see St.Petersburg from the viewpoint of Nature. We will see the objects of nature which have almost disappeared in cities, and we will stay tete-a-tete with the nature as far as it is possible in a megapolis.
You can find information about masterpieces of art and architecture in guidebooks, however they will not tell you about the masterpieces of Nature in St. Peterbsburg. They will not show you the oldest oak in the city and will not explain why the river Neva is not a river. You will breathe clean air and ditach yourself for a couple of hours from the noise of the city.
