During your 3-day visit to St. Petersburg I will guide you through the famous sights and some hidden corners of the city. We will spend one day traveling and exploring the city, visit the three great Cathedrals - St. Isaac, Peter and Paul fortress and Savior on the spilled blood. After lunch the same day we can visit one of the small museums to choose from - the Faberge Museum, Russian Museum or Yusupov Palace (the place of Rasputin's murder). Next day will be dedicated to country life of the Russian tsars, we'll see two summer residences - Catherine Palace and Peterhof. And finally, on the third day, we'll explore the collections of the Hermitage. In the afternoon we'll take a relaxing and enchanting boat trip along the rivers and canals.
