Jewish sights and all "must visit" places
Ladies & Gentlmen, as you may have guessed, we have something special - The highlights of St-Petersburg and few words about Jews we are proud of.
You'll learn about the people whose lives were connected with SPb.
A long time Jews were not allowed to settle at the territory of Russian Empire. But in spite of this, brilliant musicians ( Rubinstein), sculptors ( Antokolsky), artists (Levitan) fought their way to recognition.
We are proud that in our city lived and worked such poets as Osip Mandelstam and Joseph Brodsky. These people suffered from the Soviet regime but today are known all over the world. If you decide to come I advice you to read something from their poetry.
And I know how it's important to include all main highlights in this trip. So we will visit the biggest museum in Russia - Hermitage. We will see the most beautiful church - on the Spilled Blood. We will admire Russian Versailles - Peterhof. And Amber Room will be one of the most amazing memories from our city.
