St. Petersburg Urban Adventures
Day tours, with a local
Venice of the North
The famous Russian poet A.S. Pushkin called St. Petersburg “The beauty and wonder of the northern lands." The translation might sound not as poetic as in the Russian language but this is an extremely precise definition of St. Petersburg. Our tours of St. Petersburg take you off the regular tourist track enabling quality time and unique experiences. Our St. Petersburg tours are never the same. Visit little suburban churches along the way, check local supermarkets in residential areas, get metro rides and visit local families in communal apartments.
Compared to the ancient cities of Europe or Russia, St. Petersburg, which celebrated its 300th anniversary in 2003, is really a youngster. Despite this, not too many cities in the world can compete with the number of historical places and architectural wonders of this former Russian capital.
The Hermitage Museum, Peterhoff, Amber Room, St. Isaac's Cathedral, Kirov Theatre… the list of places to visit in St. Petersburg goes on and on. It is a real challenge to squeeze things and places we want to show our customers in our city into the format of a tour, however long it is. From the very first minute of your walking tour of St. Petersburg, you start feeling overwhelmed with the grandeur, taste and mystery of this place, full of great shades and memories.
The town was conceived and built on the bank of the Finish Gulf according to the rational plan and Peter the Great’s desire to build the first European town in Russia. Just a 3-4 hour flight from any major European hub will bring you to the Venice of the North. Though the present city center is really a mixture of buildings constructed at different times, one can not escape the impression of the divine unity, harmony of stone and water.
Unveil the majesties of St. Petersburg through the Wonderland of Oz, tucked into one of the local yards of a monument to Russian submarines. On this St Petersburg tour, you will learn the secrets of the Soviet metro while savouring traditional Russian honey beer in one of the most unique Russian Air Force bars. Along the way, marvel in the stories of Rasputin and Lenin while delighting in the beautiful art nouveau architecture along with way.more...
