Now about everything in order.

Rooftop view

Recently, there has been an organization in St. Petersburg that provides residents and tourists with the opportunity to climb onto one of the rooftops in the center of St. Petersburg, look at cityscapes and take spectacular photographs. This excursion is approved and supported by the city authorities, it meets all safety requirements in accordance with the Ministry of Emergencies and the police. Tours are also conducted in English, but in the high season, there is an acute shortage of full-time guides, and in this case, they provide the opportunity to accompany guests by a guide-translator.

Helicopter ride

This bright adventure can be combined with a tour of the Peter and Paul Fortress during a city tour, since the take-off site is located on the territory of Hare Island, on which the fortress is located. This is a great opportunity to admire the most beautiful bird's-eye views of the center of St. Petersburg in an absolutely safe and relatively inexpensive way. In addition, take a ride on the legendary Mi-8 - the most massive twin-engine helicopter in the world. Flights are operated on weekends and holidays from May to October, subject to favorable weather conditions.

Dome of the Singer House

There are quite a few panoramic places in St. Petersburg in different parts of the historical center - the colonnade of St. Isaac's Cathedral, the spire of the Peter and Paul Cathedral, luxurious restaurants with terraces. Such places include the roof with the dome of the former House of the Singer Company, or as it became known in Soviet times as the House of Books. In addition to a wonderful view of the main Orthodox church of the city - Kazan Cathedral and the main central street – Nevsky prospect, you will discover the stunning architecture and decoration of this place.
