One museum, one fortress, two churches and panoramic private tour.


Having this not-intensive tour I will show you the most famous and beautiful highlights of Saint Petersburg without spending time going to the palaces located in the suburbs of the city.
We will visit one museum, one fortress, two churches and we will have a panoramic private tour by rental car or van!

We will visit the most important and the biggest museum of the country - the State Hermitage museum where famous Winter Palace is a part of. We will see the amazing official interiors and canvases of European masters such as da Vinci and Rembrandt, Titian and Raphael.

During the tour we will also go to the Peter and Paul fortress that is the birthplace of Saint Petersburg where we will go inside the Peter and Paul Cathedral - the main Orthodox Church of Russia and the burial place of all Russian emperors of 18-19th centuries including the family of the last Tsar Nicolas the Second. We will visit Church on Spilled Blood - the symbol of Saint Petersburg. And of course we will go inside St. Isaac's Cathedral.

Itinerary

After meeting with you at the passanger port at 8AM, we will have a short panoramic tour and than go to the Peter and Paul Fortress, where the history of Saint Petersburg began, where we will soak in the splendor of Imperial Russia.

Then, after about an hour and a half, we'll head to The Hermitage Museum (Winter Palace). Amazing official interiors and canvases of European masters such as da Vinci and Rembrandt, Titian and Raphael await us. A feast for the eyes! If you are coming on Wednesday when Church on Spilled Blood and St. Isaac's Cathedral are closed during our panoramic tour we will have stops at very important active Orthodox churches of the city and it's main mosque. The Hermitage is closed on Monday so we can enlarge the tour by visiting Peterhof.
