During this sightseeing tour we will make lots of photo stops at the most striking sights of the city such as granite Egyptian sphinxes, the Spit of Vasilyevsky island with two lighthouses (Rostral columns) and the legendary cruiser Aurora.
We will walk around the Palace square - main square of our city in front of the Hermitage museum, we will visit the Church of the Savior on the Spilled Blood where Russian Tsar - Alexander II was assassinated by terrorists in 1881 and St. Isaac's Cathedral (4th largest Dome Cathedral in the World).
After that we will have a subway ride under the Neva River so you will be able to see the deepest underground station in Europe.
