Description

Welcome to St. Petersburg, the former capital of Imperial Russia, home of the Tsars and one of the world’s most beautiful and romantic cities. The entire city center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is full of beautiful palaces and monuments. The city is also known as Northern Venice because of its location on numerous islands in the Neva River and its many canals with more than 400 bridges. This tour is a great start to your trip and the best way to get acquainted with all of the city´s major highlights. It will take you throughout the historical center of St. Petersburg and includes spectacular views of the Neva River, Griboyedova and Moika canals, numerous bridges connecting the city islands and visits to the two main islands - Petrogradsky and Vasilevsky. The tour will introduce the visitor to Nevsky Prospect – the city’s famous boulevard, the Winter Palace, other palaces and churches and to the areas of the city formerly inhabited by Dostoyevsky, Rasputin and numerous Russian princes and counts.

Cathedral of the Savior on the Spilled Blood. St. Petersburg´s most Russian looking building with its onion shaped domes and multi colored facade. The cathedral is built on the ground where Tsar Alexander II was assassinated by terrorists. It is notable for its extremely beautiful mosaics and icons. The Church contains over 7500 square meters of mosaics, more than any other church in the world. The interior was designed by some of the most celebrated Russian artists of the day—including Vasnetsov, Nesterov and Vrubel. The walls and ceilings inside the Church are completely covered in intricately detailed mosaics — the main pictures being biblical scenes or figures — but with very fine patterned borders setting off each picture.
