One-day private tour dedicated to the Soviet history of Russia and St.Petersburg
Most people assosiate St. Petersburg with Imperial history of Russia. And they are right - St. Petersburg was the capital of Ruissian Empire for 200 years. Yes, it'f full of beautiful palaces BUT there is something more to see and learn here.
For over 60 years our city was called Leningrad and described as 'Birthplace of three Revolutions'
So, I invite you on the tour dedictaed to the Soviet period of our history.
Russian Revolution - from the first Russian terrorists to the Civil War
Soviet Union - Lenin, Stalin, Khrushev, Brezhnev and Gorbachev.
World War II or as we call it Great Patriotis War and the Siege of Leningrad.
Perestroika started by Gorbachev
Fall of Soviet Union in 1991.
I will take you through the history presenting different points of view, showing the best and the worst.
I will try to answer all your questions you always wanted to ask about Soviet Union and life there.
