Review by Rob P.

The Soviet building works of the 1920s was something that amazed foreigners: it was hard to believe that after enduring the civil war the Russians would begin building a “brave, new world” using architectural forms never witnessed before in a style known as “constructivism”. There is a single square on Manhattan-like grid of avenues and streets of Vasilievsky Island that tells the story of the rise and fall of the most creative artistic style of the 20th century, whose philosophy anticipated almost all future architectural movements from brutalism to hi-tech. You will explore the "Red Nail-Maker" plant, Kirov Workers' Club, a catering factory and a lot more utopian buildings.
That is why if it’s inspiration you need, you cannot afford miss the futuristic buildings tour.
It is a pleasant 20-minute walk from the meeting point at Vasileostrovskaya metro station to the first building on route, or the group can take a public bus (25 roubles per person).

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!

Put on your walking shoes! Vladimir will take you on a great tour and explain the details of some remarkable buildings across Vasilievsky Island. He is a hugely knowledgeable host and really loves his topic. If history and architecture are your go, then this is a must do for your agenda.
