On this journey, behold architectural marvels of “Venice of the North” that is filled with historical artifacts along with stunning buildings and breathtaking views!

Our expert guide will show you the best of the intriguing St. Petersburg and reveal a great deal of its history.

The Peter and Paul fortress from which the construction of the future Russian capital for 300 years started, will astonish you with its heritage and a functioning mint factory. The Saint Peter and Paul's Cathedral is a unique place because it is a burial-vault of many Russian emperors, including the family of the last one, Nikolas II.

The marvel of Russian architecture: The Church of Our Savior on the Spilled Blood truly stands out among mostly Neoclassical and Baroque buildings of the city. Magnificent awe-inspiring detailed mosaics will flabbergast you!
