About the tour on
Русский язык

The Soviet building works of the 1920s was something that amazed foreigners: it was hard to believe that after enduring the civil war the Russians would begin building a “brave, new world” using architectural forms never witnessed before in a style known as “constructivism”. There is a single square on Manhattan-like grid of avenues and streets of Vasilievsky Island that tells the story of the rise and fall of the most creative artistic style of the 20th century, whose philosophy anticipated almost all future architectural movements from brutalism to hi-tech. You will explore the "Red Nail-Maker" plant, Kirov Workers' Club, a catering factory and a lot more utopian buildings.
That is why if it’s inspiration you need, you cannot afford miss the futuristic buildings tour.
It is a pleasant 20-minute walk from the meeting point at Vasileostrovskaya metro station to the first building on route, or the group can take a public bus (25 roubles per person).

Что роднит конструктивизм и революцию? Почему именно это течение архитектуры развивалось в двадцатые годы, сразу после революции?

Диалектика геометрических форм, суровая монументальность железобетона, бесспорно, созвучны революции. Конструктивизм разрабатывал архитектурные формы и типы зданий для нового, преображенного мира.

Экскурсия на «Остров конструктивистов» откроет вам постреволюционную архитектуру, не ориентированную на рыночную конъюнктуру и вкусы буржуазной публики.

Фабрики-кухни, пантеоны революции, дворцы трудящихся — все эти постройки утверждали эстетику города-сада, о котором говорят герои стихотворения Маяковского.
В самом сердце Васильевского острова советские архитекторы-конструктивисты создали если не сад, то палисадник. Они высадили здесь цветы самого экзотического вида.

Гуляя по саду, мы увидим водонапорную башню завода «Красный гвоздильщик», фабрику-кухню, дворец культуры им. С.М. Кирова .

Не упустите шанс, насладится уникальными образцами авангардного искусства в путешествии на Остров конструктивистов!

В экскурсии принимали участие 20 человек, учащиеся 11 класса из Нижнего Новгорода. Благодарим за профессиональный подход к историческому и культурному наследию. Кроме этого Владимир обладает очень важными качествами организатора и истинного интеллигента-петербуржца. Спасибо. Надеемся на дальнейшее сотрудничество.

We took the Metro Palaces tour with Vladimir on our first night in St. Petersburg. This was our first visit and we can't imagine a better introduction than the two hours we spent learning about the history of the city through the design of the metro system. Vladimir is a wonderful guide - extremely knowledgeable, friendly and clearly passionate about the subject matter. We highly recommend the tour and Vladimir as a guide to this amazing city.

Vladimir is a real expert on the architecture and history of the city. He did a great job by making a private to suit our interests. He showed us some buildings of early and later soviet periods we would never have found ourselves. Besides that he takes time for everything you would like to know. As a surprise he introduced us to some really good Russian wines we really enjoyed.

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.
