THE MOST UNUSUAL CITY TOUR IN ST PETERSBURG

The Neva is one of the most beautiful rivers in Europe. Free and restive, it emphasizes the beauty of St. Petersburg, turning the city into "Northern Venice". Lots of poems and songs are devoted to this river, it is loved as much as majestic Petersburg itself.

In the heart of the city Neva washes the Zayachy Island. Here in 1703 the construction of the great and beautiful future capital of the Russian Empire began. The heart of St. Petersburg was Peter and Paul Fortress. It is still the same today‑ with its magnificent cathedral, the burial place of Russian emperors, many museums and historical monuments. 

We think this could become the most unusual tour around St. Petersburg!
