From the time of the Scythians to the Renaissance to Imperial Russia


On this city tour I will include the most important photo stops such as: Palace Square, Peter and Paul Fortress, Muslim Mosque, Synagogue, Isaac's Square, Cruiser Aurora and more.

I offer you a guided tour of the Hermitage where you can see different art galleries, collections of applied arts from the time of the Scythians to European painting of the Renaissance, archeological artifacts of Eastern Europe and a large collection of Imperial Porcelain.

Built from 1883 to 1907, and funded by the Imperial Family, the magnificent Church on Spilled Blood is located on the site where tsar Alexander II was assassinated in March 1881.

Architecturally speaking, the Cathedral differs from St. Petersburg's other structures. The Church contains over 7500 square meters of mosaics—according to its restorers, more than any other church in the world.

And finally we will visit Saint Isaac's Cathedral in Saint Petersburg is the largest orthodox basilica and the fourth largest cathedral in the world
