The destinies of the buildings

I have worked in the tourism industry, hospitality and event management for more than 6 years. During this time, I have received all the necessary documents for carrying out my activities, wrote several author’s tours, worked with both Russian and foreign groups of different numbers and ages, participated in organizing and “technical support” of culture programs. In addition to the tours I already announced I can happily think up and conduct for you almost any tour on the topic that interests you. I always glad to discuss all your wishes and suggestions.

Walking through the center of St. Petersburg, You don't stop to admire the buildings. Wherever you look, each with its own “face”, individual features that are not similar to others.
Indeed, buildings, like people, have their own destiny, their own biography, which is a reflection of the personalities and biographies of their owners, their tastes and preferences, as well as historical and political events.
I suggest you walk along the route connecting the oldest historical quarters of the center of St. Petersburg with a very picturesque and bohemian district of Kolomna.
During a pleasant walk you will see many masterpieces of architecture in St. Petersburg, some of which are widely known, others will be a discovery for you, learn interesting facts from the history the buildings and their owners, famous citizens Petersburg.

We were with Lilia for 2 days and had a fabulous time. We visited Peterhof one day and Tsarsko Selo the second day. Lilia was very knowledgeable, patient and fun. She is an excellent guide to have for both of these destinations and without a doubt for any Tour she provides. When (and not if) we return to St Petersburg we will definitely have Lilia show us much more of this great city. FYI a whole day for Peterhof and another full day for Tsarsko Selo is needed. To be able to see these palaces properly you do need to spend the whole day. We took the hydrofoil to Peterhof which is the best and easiest way to get to and from the palace. We were docked at the "English Embankment" on Azamara Journey. One interesting point is right beside the our ship is where the Aurora fired the shot to start the Revolution. Finally we recommend Lilia very highly and if you want a great Tour then choose her. Regards, Catherine and Peter
