Tour Highlights

Peter and Paul Fortress

Located on the banks of the beautiful Neva River, the towering Peter and Paul Fortress dominates the skyline of St Petersburg. Built in 18th century, the fortress is a must-see attraction for anyone interested in the city's rich history. The fortress is also home to the famous Cathedral of St Peter and Paul, the city's oldest, dating back to 1712.

The State Hermitage Museum

For those wanting a greater insight into Russian culture and history, the Hermitage's extensive collection of artworks literally paints a picture of the nation's captivating past. In fact it's one of the largest and oldest museums in the world! The museum was founded in 1764 and nowadays, the Hermitage has about 2.7 million exhibits and displays a full range of world art.

Nevsky prospect walking tour

Nevsky Prospect is St. Petersburg’s main avenue and one of the best-known streets in Russia. Cutting through the historical center of the city, it runs from the Admiralty to the Moscow Railway Station and then, after a slight kink, to the Alexander Nevsky Monastery. In the very first days of St. Petersburg it was simply the beginning of the road to the ancient city of Novgorod, but it quickly became adorned with beautiful buildings, squares and bridges and became the very center of the bustling, rapidly growing city.

Tsarskoe Selo: Catherine Palace and Amber room

If any proof is needed for the extravagance of Russia's Imperial rulers, then it can be found in the fact that, in less than two centuries, the Romanov Tsars established this suburban estate named TsarskoeSelo (Tsar village) - that, in terms of grandeur and excess, outstrip even famous French Palaces and gorgeous Italian Villas. The Amber Room in the Palace was a complete chamber decoration of amber panels backed with gold leaf and mirrors. Due to its singular beauty, it was sometimes dubbed the "Eighth Wonder of the World".

Show-Museum Grand Maket Rossia

The national show-museum “Grand Maket Rossiya” doesn`t have analogs in the world. It is a unique chance to walk around the whole country from Kaliningrad to the Far East. The dynamics and richness of the layout is given by hundreds of moving trains and cars. There are more than 2 kilometers of railways on the layout and smart cars move according to traffic regulations. Thousands of miniature figures create thematic scenes. More than 800 thousand light-emitting diodes provide the alternation of day and night.

Metro Tour

In St. Petersburg Metro anyone can easily mix the station with the beautiful palace venue or five-star hotel lobby. In Soviet times Metro stations considered to be palaces for the working people. Many stations are real works of art made of marble and richly decorated with mosaics, sculptures and stained glass.
