St. Petersburg City Tour

When you arrive to St. Petersburg the first thing you notice is that this city is nothing similar to other Russian cities. It is much more European-like than Moscow, and that's strongly connected with its history.

The city was built in 1703 by order of Peter the Great, who was inspired by Holland cities and was about to build a new Russian capital. The city's development was started with Petropavlovskaya Fortress and then extended to both riversides. The city used to be a capital for almost two hundred years, it was undoubtedly an era of prosperity for St. Petersburg.

Architecture of the city is typical European, because it was supposed to look like Amsterdam and Venice: wide avenues, thoroughfares, squares and numerous parks, buildings made of stone. The oldest buildings in center of the city are listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Most of them you will be able to see during St. Petersburg City Tour: Nevskiy ave., which is the central street of the city which is also the oldest one, and all the sights located nearby. Isaac's Cathedral and Kazan Cathedral will amaze you with huge dimensions of construction. You will enjoy the view that opens from the Spit of Vasilievsky Island and Field of Mars, see the Bronze Horseman monument, which is the symbol of St. Petersburg and much more.
