Being the capital of Russia for two centuries, Saint Petersburg was built according to master plans with the participation of the most talented architects of Europe and Russia. As a result, we can now enjoy the open-air museum, the historical center of St. Petersburg and some of its suburbs are included in UNESKO World Heritage List. Petersburg is a city with a rich history and cultural heritage. The city of museums and theaters, ballet and opera, white nights, rivers and canals with granite embankments and drawbridges, the city of the Romanovs and Dostoevsky. Its magnificent architectural ensembles, grandiose squares and ancient fortresses fascinate not only the guests of the city, but also us, its inhabitants, because it is impossible to get used to such beauty!


Description

The Sightseeing tours or City tours in St Petersburg are the great way to get acquainted with the city, its main sights, to plan places for visiting, to make photos against the iconic backgrounds and unforgettable city panoramas. As a rule, the Saint Petersburg city tour takes place by car or minivan and lasts 3-4 hours. However, it can be combined with a walking tour around the city center or visiting major museums such as the Hermitage, the Russian Museum, St. Isaac's Cathedral, the Savior on Blood, the Peter and Paul Fortress and others. Also, increasing the tour, you may dine at a restaurant or cafe of your choice (I will offer options in accordance with the preferred kitchen) and visit the best souvenir shops and shopping malls.
