Let's explore the central and yet unknown part of the old Saint-Petersburg together

This tour is good for your very first day in St. Petersburg -I'll give your advices regarding planning of the rest days of your stay.
One of the wonders of Great City is its big prestigious district "The Golden Triangle" bordered by Dvortsovaya embankment of Neva river, Nevsky Prospect and Fontanka river. There are no certain route within its borders and each time our plan might be a bit different. But there are sights and buildings which are always here: Palace Square with The Hermitage, St. Isaak's Cathedral, Church on the Spilled Blood, Field of Mars, Engineer Castle, Summer Garden and Michailovsky Garden. You have opportunity to see art-nouveau style of Eliseev Merchants' Shop, Grand Hotel Europe and House of Books. We can sit for a coffee - break in panoramic small coffee shops. And we'll see many other old streets, canals and charming corners which I would gladly show you.


During our walking tour we may see the following places: Palace Square with The Hermitage, St. Isaak's Cathedral, Church on the Spilled Blood, Field of Mars, Engineer Castle, Michailovsky Garden, Nevsky Prospect, Art's Square, Kazan Cathedral.

A Recent Review of this tour

My wife and I wanted to visit a lot of sites in St Petersburg which are not on the normal tourist trail. Elena worked extremely hard in discovering information and making arrangements. Thanks to her, our visit was a huge success and most enjoyable. We hope to return next year and our first priority will be to contact Elena.
