One of the most interesting and little-known pages of St. Petersburg's history is its Masonic past. On this special audio tour, you will really comprehend the metaphysics of the Northern capital, learn to recognize Masonic signs on buildings around the city, and learn more about Freemasonry in Russia and its main representatives. This tour is designed for all those who are interested in the hidden nature of things, in mysterious signs and symbols, and in Freemasonry as a cultural phenomenon.

Immerse yourself completely in the wonderful world of secret Petersburg. Your tour will start from Kazan Cathedral, the main Masonic temple in the city. Here you will find out what the meaning of the most sacred Masonic symbol is. Then you'll make your way to Palace Square and see the place where the sky descends to the earth, and the earthly ascends to heaven.

During the discovery of the first shipyard of the Russian Empire, you will feel what the purpose of Peter the Great's Masonic philosophy was. Enjoy a pleasant walk along one of the most beautiful embankments of St. Petersburg's main river, where you will have the opportunity to "whisper" with the tsar-carpenter and make a cherished wish. The audio tour ends at St. Isaac's Square, where you will discover the main secrets of the city.
