What you'll do

Were you planning to visit Russia and St. Petersburg, but could not make it because of the lockdown? Or did you try to learn more about Russian history - and ended up absolutely overwhelmed by the information? Then this online experience is for you.
We will visit the best not-to-be-missed attractions of the city, such as the Peter and Paul Fortress, where the history of the new Russia started, and we will learn how Peter the Great (the founder of the city), with the help of Europeans, built the new city in just 13 years. We will take a stroll along with the Gala Halls of the Hermitage Museum. You will see the spot where one Russian Czar was assassinated and you will admire the stunning collection of Faberge eggs.
But St. Pete is not only about history and fascinating stories about court intrigues. I will tell you what Russians eat besides Borscht and potatoes, and what they drink besides vodka. And what is more important: I will give you tips about where locals go to find these goodies.
So in about one-and-a-half hours & with the help of Zoom and the materials I have prepared, you will feel like you have already visited St. Petersburg, you will be stunned by the opulence of the Hermitage Museum, you will have found no trace of the Soviet Union past, and you would love to try Russian cuisine. All without leaving your home, city, or country.
See you!

Hi there!
I live in St. Petersburg, Russia, I have two degrees in international history, and in the history of art. So yes, I am a history nerd=)
So I combined my two passions and became a tour guide. And then, I realized that also it could bring good money, so I decided to launch the tour company. It is called "SPb To See" tour operator and my company provides a full range of tour services for guests who travel to Russia from abroad.
However, the coronavirus has changed all my plans for the upcoming high season, but I try to stay positive. I love my job very much, so even in the world's lockdown time I organized my personal endless online high season=)
And I am looking forward to meeting online and telling you about my stunning country!

Very beautifully presented architecture and historical overview. I was particularly interested in how St. Petersburg got built up - I was very impressed with the artwork and live videos we saw, especially the rooster clock!
