A 1-day walking tour

So you have already seen all those "gala" views and are looking for something more informal. Or it's your first time in the city, but you are not into museums, palaces and long lines. Then welcome to my tour!

You will learn new and unexpected facts concerning the construction of the city and see lots of amazing sites off the tourist routes.

Street art & food. Shops & markets. Cafes & anti cafes. Places where locals go. Public transport and everything you are interested in. Feel St. -Pete's true spirit!


This tour doesn't have a strict itinerary we need to follow, as it's for people who want to get acquainted with the city's everyday life. But these are places you will definitely see on the way:

- Courtyards of the Academic Capella;
- Nevsky prospect - the main street;
- The Rotund - the most mysterious place in the city;
- The embankment of the Fontanka river with its "profitable" or "income" houses;
- Rubinstein street, the gastronomic Mecca of St. -Pete;
- Angels courtyard;
- "Emerald city" courtyard;
- The secret Beatles street;
- and many many others.

I'll show you where locals eat, shop and entertain. If you have some particular interest (eg. visiting a local flea market, or a hospital, etc. ), just let me know.
