To feel, to watch, to taste Russia with a local private guide


St-Petersburg was built in accordance with European model of a city and even received European name.
In a monumental effort to westernise the country, Russian tsar Peter the Great invited a lot of foreign architects, scientists, engineers, officers to settle in St-Petersburg. So from the very beginning it was a multinational and multicultural city, which later became the most tolerant and liberal settlement in Russia, its scientific and artistic centre.
But I suppose, dear Guests, you'd like to find in Russia, something Russian. To feel, to watch, to taste Russian culture and traditions.
With me
- you'll see Russian architecture and Russian art in this European city
- taste Russian cuisine in the city where leading French chefs considered prestigious to work
- and as an option you'll enjoy a bright folklore show in Russian style coming from the ancient traditions or will be excited by ballet performance at the birthplace of the Russian ballet.
THE TOUR IS NOT AVAILABLE ON TUESDAYS.
