The underside of the front Petersburg
Petersburg is the former capital of the Russian Empire. Rulers lived here more than 200 years. It imposed a special imprint on the history of our city and especially in its architecture. Now we're not the capital but to look at the remnants of the former luxury is quite possible. And even in St. Petersburg a lot of unusual buildings. This tour is for those who are interested in architecture or just loves unusual. We'll see what is left of the Voroninski baths which were visited by the Grand Dukes and Rasputin, and will see the old Pharmacy of Pel, psychedelic Griffins' tower, Round house, underground Rotunda, tenant house of Back and places where lived the heroes of Dostoevsky. All of this is hidden in the yards of the front facade, which is why the second name of this excursion Courtyards of the city.

Irina is extremely intelligent about the history and current affairs of her city. She knows many unique places that aren't on the usual tourist agenda. She is very good at steering the tour and conversation to your interests and you can tell by her explanations, that she is passionate about sharing her knowledge with you. Her English is impeccable and she will even discuss current events. Many Russians avoid talk of such topics with foreigners. Thanks Irina for making my time in Petersburg memorable
