City tour St.Petersburg

The tour will take you along most important and beautiful sights of the "Northern Venice". You will learn about history of this town on the river Neva by seeing most outstanding buildings and views of St. Petersburg.

State Hermitage

The State Hermitage ranks among the world's most unique art museums. The Hermitage takes up five buildings that of the Winter Palace, the Small Hermitage, the Old Hermitage, the New Hermitage and the Hermitage Theatre which are connected with small passages thus forming one single unit. Over 300 rooms are open to the public and contain a rich selection from the Museum's collections numbering over 28,000,000 items which can give us idea about the development of World Art from prehistoric times to our days. World famous is the collection of West-European paintings comprising works by Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Titian, El Greco, Rembrandt, Impressionists, etc.

State Russian Museum

In the spring of 1895 an Imperial Decree was published "Concerning the foundation of a specific establishment entitled "The Russian Museum of Emperor Alexander III". The museum was opened three years later in the Mikhailovsky Palace, built for Paul's youngest son. Now it houses the world's largest collection of Russian fine art and sculpture which runs today up to 370,000 exhibits and traces the evolution of Russian art from the 10th century to the present day. Besides its main building, the Russian Museum has in recent years acquired the Stroganov and the Marble Palaces and the Engineer's Castle: each of these magnificent architectural monuments is unique in itself and has its own displays.

Peter & Paul Fortress

Built to secure Russia's hold on the Neva delta, the Peter and Paul fortress anticipated the foundation of St. Petersburg by a year- and may even have suggested to Peter the Great the idea of founding a city. The construction began on May 16, 1703 and this is the day when the city got its start. The fortress' role as a prison for political convicts dates back to 1718, when Peter the Great's son, Alexey, was tortured to death here. Known as the ‘Russian Bastille", its grim reputation struck terror until the Soviet period. In 1921 it was turned into the state museum with many permanent exhibitions dealing mostly with the History of St. Petersburg. Peter & Paul Cathedral (arch. Tressini, 1732) is a real landmark of the city and its main attraction. Sited around the nave are the tombs of the Romanov monarchs from Peter the Great onwards, whose coffins repose in vaults beneath the sarcophagi. On July 17, took place the burial ceremony of the remains of the family of Tsar Nicholas II and members of his retinue, who died tragically 80 years ago. Finally the last Emperor of Russia has been laid to rest in the cathedral.

St. Isaac's Cathedral

It is a remarkable monument of Russian architecture (architect A.Monferrand), the former principal cathedral of the Russian Capital, the largest cathedral in town which can hold up to 7000 people and the third largest domed structure in the world (101,5 meters high.) The cathedral took 40 years to be built and more than 200 artists took part in the works. The vast interior is decorated with 43 kinds of minerals including 14 sorts of marble, gilded stucco, 62 mosaics, 152 paintings, more than 300 sculptures and bas-reliefs. The cathedral is adorned with 112 solid granite columns weighing 114 tons each and about 400 monumental bronze sculptures. The observation platform on the colonnade provides a magnificent view of the city. Now the cathedral continues to function as a museum and the services have resumed on a sporadic basis.

Pavlovsk

Pavlovsk is 30 km to the south from St.Petersburg. The Grand Palace in Pavlovsk was built for Emperor Paul I and was used as his official residence. The palace is reminiscent of an Italian villa in design. On the ground and first floors you will be able to see private and state rooms of the royal family while on the second floor there is an exposition "Russian Interior of the 19th century". The palace contains a unique collection of antique sculptures, 18-19th century furniture, bronze, clocks and porcelain. The luxurious park round the palace covering the area of 600 hectares with numerous pavilions can give you an idea of the early 19th century Landscape Park. The Rose Pavilion is open after restoration, concerts of chamber and classical music can be arranged there.

Peterhof (Petrodvorets)

Peterhof is situated 30 km. away from St. Petersburg and was founded by Peter the Great on the southern coast of the Gulf of Finland in the early 18th c. The tour of Peterhof includes the Grand Palace built by Rastrelli and the park with numerous fountains and small palace pavilions. Recently Grottoes were open to public after the restoration. The favorite palace of Peter I Monplaisir meaning "my pleasure" is on a high artificial terrace right by the sea. In Monplaisir you would see Peter's books, his bedroom and favorite marinas. A small pavilion Hermitage is in the remote part of the park. Hermitage was used for private receptions and dinners. Lovely Marly Palace with the Golden Hill Cascade next to it was built for Catherine I, wife of Peter the Great. In the gardens one can see Catherine Block where Catherine II stayed alone while her husband Peter III lived in another palace. From this block on 10 July 1762 Catherine II galloped to St. Petersburg to proclaim herself the Empress. For over 200 years Peterhof was used for official ceremonies, lavish feasts and formal receptions.

Tsarskoye Selo (Pushkin)

Tsarskoye Selo is 24 km to the south from St.Petersburg and is one of the finest examples of royal country residences. Tourists are able to see the Catherine Palace built by the architect Rastrelli in baroque style more than 200 years ago and a beautiful park (1500 acres). Before the revolution Tsarskoye Selo was a summer residence of Russian tsars. Breathtaking view of the so-called Golden Corridor gives a vivid example of opulence and luxury of Russian 18th century court. Two expositions outside the palace are available: "Russian Costume of the 18-19th c." and "Imperial Carriages". We can also offer you a city tour of Tsarskoye Selo built up with mansions and country houses of Russian nobility and a tour "The Last Tsar from the Romanov Dynasty in Tsarskoye Selo". Tsarskoye Selo is also famous for the fact that great Russian poet Alexander Pushkin studied at the Lyceum. The house where he stayed with his newly-wed wife has been preserved and you can see it as well as the Lyceum.

Alexander Nevsky Monastery

The monastery was founded in 1713 by Peter the Great, on the site where presumably battle of 13th century took place in which Prince Alexander of Novgorod defeated the Swedes, that's for he was nicknamed "Alexander Nevsky" (the name " Nevsky" being derived from the River Neva). In 1797 the monastery was elevated to the status of Lavra, the highest rank in Orthodox monasticism. After the October Revolution of 1917 the monastery was closed and now it is a functioning monastery again. The monastery complex comprises the Tikhvin and Lazarus cemeteries, the Holy Trinity Cathedral and a Museum of Urban Sculpture. Many eminent figures of Russian science and culture and representatives of the Russian aristocracy were buried in the Lavra's Necropolis of the XVIII-XX centuries.
