Description Prices Meeting point

Take a walk with me alongside Nevsky prospect — the main avenue of St. Petersburg, which connected the Admiralty shipyard with the rest of Russia. Here you can see the unique skyline of St. Petersburg, where no building should be taller than Winter Palace or wider than the street. See this ensemble which consists of buildings belonging to every style, which was used by many of the chief architects of St. Petersburg during its 300 year history. Observe how they developed from the first baroque palaces on the former outskirts of the city and classical buildings of the Empire style to eclectic historical trends and modern style of the beginning of 20th century. It was a street of "many faiths" where Russian Orthodox churches stand near Protestant, Catholic and Lutheran cathedrals. It was a street of commerce with its first shopping malls and headquarters of banks and credit organizations. Libraries, theaters, bookstores and concert halls made it a cultural capital of Russia.

The minimum cost of the tour is 2000 rubles for a group of 1-4 people. For a group of 5-10 people the cost is 500 rubles per person.

Bored with run of the mill, standard tours, where guides just repeat the same old memorized text? You are more than welcome to try my lecture tours in a unique style of infotainment (mixing history and charismatic storytelling) delivered through my own personality and with my own flair. Fully licensed and accredited experienced guide in St. Petersburg, Russia, I can do major Museums such as Hermitage, Russian museum, Faberge, Peter and Paul fortress, suburbs such as Pushkin, Pavlovsk and Peterhoff, Cathedrals of St.Isaak, SS Peter and Paul, Spilled Blood, our Lady of Kasan etc. Ohter venues could be persued such as political history museum, siege of Leningrad museum depending on your interests, as well as various destinations such as Oranienbaum and Kronstadt half day trips and three day trip to Kizgi island are available on request.
St. Petersburg is full of surprises, and without doubt, is best experienced on foot. You've probably already heard, that it is often called an open air museum. Each building is an exhibit with its unique history surrounded by mystery, intrigue and even murder. There is no better way to see it than to take a guided walking tour around the historical center of the city and learn the history of Peter's creation. You will not only see beautiful ensembles and royal palaces but would be able to find out about its former creators and owners. Was it a curse or blessing for its inhabitants? You'll learn this and much more. I usually speak about socio-economic progress of the country, during corresponding period of time in conjunction with the development of different architecture's and art's styles. Along this route we talk about the history of each building and their former famous owners so you'll get a crush course of Russian history as well. I can be academic, yet not overloading you with the details, I can be entertaining, yet informative at the same time. So if you are "Intellectually curious" and btw it is not a strict term, the walking tours are just up your alley. They are extremely small (six people maximum), personal, and informative the real nitty-gritty of the city. Usually the fine details often overlooked for the more popular highlights. Of course, the highlights are available for anyone who asks. My area of expertise is in architecture and European art history. But where I really exceed, it is Russian history. So if you are not intimidated to be led by PhD-wielding smarty-pants type, get in contact with me for customizing your personal tailored tour. My English is fluent plus it would not grate on your ears and sound threatening or defensive, because unlike those other guides, I learnt the language directly from the original sources, so I can speak it with right tonality a modulation.
