What you'll do

Tougher than "The Game of Thrones", more epic than "The Star Wars", more terrible than "The Walking Dead", more romantic than "The Twilight": it is History of Russia! We will visit the Museum of Political History of Russia to talk about such periods as the end of Emperial Russia, Revolution, Second World War, fall of the USSR and Putin's Russia. It is a very interesting museum that cannot be concidered as a storage of documents. This place gives you main ideas about history of Russia using art objects. We could spend a day in the museum of Political History but we will continue the tour visiting the Peter and Paul Fortress. The fortress is the birthplace of Saint Peterburg, its history started in 1703. It is also the burial place of the Russian Royal Family. I do think that this place is the most important in Saint Petersburg from historical prospective! Museum tickets (around 12USD per person) are not included. Peter and Paul Cathedral is closed on Wednesdays (but we will visit the fortress anyway)

Your hosts

If you want to know more about Russian history with fun and ease, we are probably the best choice as we have a Degree in history. In our tours we always avoid boring history lectures with dozens of facts and dates. My friends even tell me that I have a sense of humor. . . well, what else can they tell me? ;) My wife Irina and I are experienced tour guides who work mostly with big groups of cruisers. We offer this tour as it is something different from all standrt ones. It will be our pleasure to guide you through Russian history! Our friend Pavel is a professional historian. Fall of the Russian Empire is his field of interest. We are absolutely amazed by his historical tours and we are very glad having him in the team.
