Where the spirit of rock roams free
We'll go where the spirit of rock roams free. Wouldn't you enjoy the biggest fan of The Beatles apartment and a place where the famous Russian rock stars lived? Have you ever tasted fresh coffee in an art center? Fancy to buy a spiky choker at the Rock shop and just continue to the other art center in a building of a former bakery. . .
There are plenty of art objects and great gloomy Rock style yards, graffiti and other amazing things that will make you feel like a real rock star. If you love the history of rock and modern art, that place will touch your heart. People around you will also be "a part of a movement", weirdly dressed, with bright make-up colors but very cheerful and friendly!
Another special place for ordinary Russian people is Sennaya market place. There you can buy from vintage and second hand goods to modern Chinese and fake bags and sunglasses. Be careful and enjoy it!
Our tour will end up in a very nice and lovely place-the first donuts cafe in the city!
