Off the beaten tracks
Petersburg is the former capital of the Russian Empire. Rulers lived here more than 200 years. It imposed a special imprint on the history of our city and especially in its architecture. Now we're not the capital but to look at the remnants of the former luxury is quite possible. And even in St. Petersburg a lot of unusual buildings. This tour is for those who are interested in architecture or just loves unusual. We'll see what is left of the Voroninski baths which were visited by the Grand Dukes and Rasputin, and will see the old Pharmacy of Pel, psychedelic Griffins' tower, Round house, underground Rotunda, tenant house of Back and places where lived the heroes of Dostoevsky. All of this is hidden in the yards of the front facade, which is why the second name of this excursion Courtyards of the city.

If you are coming to this city, you MUST book time with Irina! Her knowledge of the city is unsurpassed and she is so personable, you will adore her. Not only will she provide great information about the standard sights, but will also take you to see hidden gems in the city if you have sufficient time and desire. We were enchanted. We will definitely be contacting her on our next visit to "Piter".
