Description

We will see the magnificent buildings of St Petersburg and learn about their history and significance. The city was built as the imperial capital and its architecture had to emanate the glory and grandeur of the Russian Empire, the largest overland empire in the world. We will go back to different periods of the city's history, from 1703 when the city was founded to the Golden Age of the Russian Empire in the late 18th - early 19th century, to the Revolution of 1917 and the Siege of Leningrad, the most destructive siege in human history. See how the city was built and reconstructed anew, and how the Czarist and Communist governments preserved the architectural outlook of the city. In the course of the tour, I will be ready to answer all your questions, ranging from history and culture to everyday life and modern-day events.
