TOUR DESCRIPTION
We invite you to hop on this adventure with us and here is what we offer you to experience this time. You’ll get to inside visit one of the major orthodox cathedrals of our city – Church on the Spilled Blood – learn more about the Russian tsars and see their tombs in the Peter and Paul Cathedral. We will certainly give you a tour in the hermitage museum where you’ll become familiar with the collections of paintings and sculptures from different eras. For jewelry lovers this tour will be particularly memorable because you’ll also get to visit a private museum devoted to jewelry collections of the 19th-20th centuries – the Faberge Museum. Apart from the city tour, you’ll take a ride to the nearest suburbs of St Petersburg – Pushkin and Peterhof – where you’ll stroll through the parks, visit the former summer residence of Russian tsars in Pushkin and witness one of the most seen fountains in Peterhof. Feel free to book the tour if it sounds interesting!
