Petersburg - a true local! After my studies at the State University, I have been teaching English and working as a summer guide. I also travel around Europe a lot.
I can say that St-Petersburg has absorbed different epochs and styles from ancient Egypt to Art Nouveau and Soviet Constructivism. Here lived and worked people like Heinrich Schliemann (discoverer of Troy), Ivan Pavlov (physiologist), Feodor Dostoevsky (writer), Alfred Nobel etc.
In a relatively short period of existence of the city there are many different events: Crimean campaign of 1854, three Russian revolutions, WW2, 900 days of Siege. I can show you sites relating to each of these and bring their stories to life for you.
If you decide to come it will be an unforgettable experience, you will be enriched with new thoughts and feelings!
See you soon!
A Recent Review of this guide
the service was excellent and we had a great tour-she really know how to make maximum use of our time and was very flexible to our requirements.I am convinced this is the best way to see everything in the limited time of two days-she minimised queues and allowed us to view all of the important things at a pace to suit us. On a personal level Dasha had excellent English,and was very articulate and had excellent knowledge-all four of us were very pleased and parted with a degree of sadness.Well done Dasha.
