St.Petersburg - city's history and architecture
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.
