What to expect

Looking for a crash tour in St. Petersburg’s history? This walking tour will see you learning all about the city founded by the Russian Tsar Peter the Great in 1703 and the birthplace of the Russian Empire.

You'll have the opportunity to see the Impressive Church of the Saviour on Spilled Blood whose architecture will take you to the past, with its candy-coloured façade and its colourful domes. Then, you'll visit the Palace Square in the very heart of the city. This central square boasts not only unique buildings but rich history too - many events that started the October Revolution in 1917 took place here. Pass through Senate Square to see the monument to Peter the Great and then take a rest at the Palace Embankment, where you’ll have a beautiful view of the Peter and Paul Fortress.

Walking around Nevsky Prospekt, St. Petersburg’s main street, you'll find Russian Orthodox cathedrals like St. Isaac’s, a golden-domed creation that was built during the days of the Romanov dynasty. Have your camera ready, as this tour will give you a full dive into city history.
