Discover the events of St. Petersburg's communist past and see the significant sights on a 4-hour walking tour. Travel back in time to 1917 when St. Petersburg was the capital of the Russian Empire and learn about the events which forever changed the face of Russia and the entire world during the October Revolution.

Hear about the sad events of the Stalinist repression that happened in the local KGB Headquarters (also called "the Big House") and how for almost three years during World War II, Leningrad was in the blockade, which killed almost all the citizens who didn’t escape.
