Walking tour in St. Petersburg
For a traveler, St Petersburg is “a window on Russia”, a city to feel and understand this strange, but alluring country. My tour will help you to look at Russian history of different epochs and not to get lost.
However, this does not mean that you will be buried under historical facts. The spirit of the city could be felt in mundane things — from the tradition of older generation to eat up all crumbs (memory of the Nazi’s Siege) to the schedule of opening bridges known to everyone living in the islands (and that is a good few of Petersburgers). Whether you want to stroll through the city in the company of knowledgeable companion, or you’d rather plunge into the city’s history and culture, my tour is the best choice. I can offer you:
— the highlights tour including Nevsky prospect, the Kazan and St Isaac Cathedral, and main squares — the Palace Square and the Decembrists’ Square — 2 or 3 hours;
— Russian Museum, the Hermitage, St Peter and Paul Fortress — from 2 hours;
— my special tours of the Soviet epoch (St Petersburg underground palaces tour, futuristic buildings tour, and October 1917 tour) — 2 hours;
— literary St Petersburg (including Crime and Punishment tour) — from 2 hours;
— advice on choosing the best eatery, tickets to the theatre, and tickets to canal boat trip.
The tour program is always discussed in advance and scheduled. 1 hour costs 1.500 roubles (regardless of the size of the group), orders from 6 hours and more are substantially discounted. Tickets to the museums are not included in the price.
