On the pavement outside Gorkovskaya metro stop
Россия — это не только гоголевская птица-тройка и маковки церквей, это еще и грозные залпы крейсера «Авроры», твердо заявившие всей планете: «первой в истории человечества социалистической революции — быть!»
Революция вызревала в тусклых казематах Петропавловской крепости. В разное время здесь успели побывать революционеры всех сословий: от аристократов-декабристов, не испугавшихся Сибири и виселицы, лишь бы освободить крепостных крестьян, до столярского сына Максима Горького, участника марксистских кружков и великого пролетарского писателя. Не удивительно, что мозговой центр Октября, штаб большевиков, находился прямо напротив крепости — в особняке балерины Матильды Ксешинской. С балкона особняка, глядя на людское море, Ленин провозгласил знаменитый лозунг: «Вся власть советам!».

Reviews of other tours by Vladimir
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.about 1 month ago
It was really fascinating tour allowing to understand much better Russian history.2 months ago
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.3 months ago

Whether you are looking to visit the museums or simply learn about local life and cuisine, Vladimir can deliver an authentic local experience that is 100% hassle free. I would highly recommend him.9 months ago
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.

St Petersburg is a fantastic city - full of history, politics...and great tour guides! Vladimir was a wonderful guide, showing us the highlights of Soviet architecture. Both his Metro Palaces and Futuristic Buildings tours were fascinating - way beyond the banal information offered by bog-standard guidebooks. He was engaging, well-prepared and passionate about his subject. Thanks for making sure we'll never forget our trip to St Petersburg!over 1 year ago
