Our guide will meet you at the designated time and take you to the first sight, the
Temple of the Assumption. The renowned architect Vasily Kosyakov designed this stunning church in the neo-Byzantine style. It was closed during the Soviet period and, in 1957, repurposed as the city’s first year-round skating rink. The church underwent serious renovations in the 90s, and has been fully restored to its former glory.
Take a short walk to admire the
Singer Company Building, one of the most impressive landmarks on Nevsky Prospect. Constructed in 1902-1904 for the Singer Sewing Machine Company, the building boasts a distinctive mansard and Art Nouveau architectural outlines.
Take a short walk to admire to the magnificent
Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, which was built on the very spot where Tsar Alexander II was assassinated in 1881. The church, inspired by St. Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow, showcases the distinct features of Russian architecture.
If the weather permits, we will take you for a stroll through the
Summer Garden, the oldest and most beautiful park located in the center of Petersburg. Here you will get a sense of the splendor of Peter the Great’s times.
After lunch in one of the city’s finest restaurants, the tour will continue with a fascinating
excursion along the canals of Petersburg in a private motor boat. You will be able to observe the historical center of the city from a unique perspective and understand why the city is known as the “Northern Venice.”
