Soviet Heritage Private Tour by MOST PETERSBURG

Soviet Heritage Private Tour by MOST PETERSBURG

star-5

Soviet Era is one of the most controversial but interesting periods in the history of Russia. In fact, exactly St. Petersburg appeared to be the place where this era started. Petersburg is called "the cradle of three revolutions" not in vain; this city had been in the very thick of things. St. Petersburg lost its original name, lost the status of capital, was sieged but survived and remained one of the most important cities in Russia. This tour offers you an exclusive opportunity to take a look back at the nearest history of the legendary city and see the life of former Leningrad and soviet people from different sides.

You don’t need a cold war to make James Bond fly». As long as countries have their secrets, spies will exist and mysterious stories will be filmed based on gossips, legends, and anecdotes.

St.Petersburg through the eyes of it's real inhabitants and literary characters

St.Petersburg through the eyes of it's real inhabitants and literary characters

This is a comprehensive tour of St.Petersburg for intellectually curious, and though it is not a strict term for me, I might not have particular social graces, when it comes to just small talk, but if you are really interested in Russian history, I am your man. Of course it doesn't matter if you wanna go deep into it, or just do highlights and scratch the surface, each tour would be tailored to your particular demands even on the go, but you have to give me a little credit and need at least 6 days to do it justice. And the more time you give me, the more clear it becomes for you. We are not gonna rush around, cramming information, but take it gradually so by the end of tour you would be able to familiarize yourself with Russian history and literary characters to learn not just who, when and for how much but why they act as they did. Being flexible with no downtime, I unlike other guides offer itineraries that not set in stone, so you can choose to see things that amaze and educate.

Take an incredible Private ride in the Art Nouveau Mansion

Take an incredible Private ride in the Art Nouveau Mansion

The State Museum of the Political History of Russia is the successor to the Revolution Museum. It is housed in two historic buildings of the modern era: the mansions of the ballerina Matilda​ Kshesinskaya, and baron Brandt. The main expositions are so large that it is better to split the visit into two days. And get ready to learn a lot! At the same time the Museum is full of immersive technologies: touch screens, projections, objects, sounds, voices, and the only thing missing is smell. If you pick up the phone, you will hear Stalin's voice, and if you stand up in the middle of the display with windows, you will hear and see Tolstoy. The exposition ‘Matilda Kshesinskaya: Fouettes of Fate’ tells the story of the mistress of the mansion. It is a romantic and, now, such a scandalous story of one famous woman and Russian history that was so cruel to her. • Guaranteed skip-the-line entrance

Three centuries of Saint Petersburg, Golden, Silver and Soviet ages of the city

Three centuries of Saint Petersburg, Golden, Silver and Soviet ages of the city

St.Petersburg apeared a little bit more than 300 years ago. And from its humble wooden beginning it played an important part in Russian history. I want you to take a closer look with me at places deeply connected with the three ages of St.Petersburg; Golden Age of being Imperial capital of privileged nobles and royalties, Silver Age of last days of Empire with decadent representatives of bohemian elite of art, literature, music and ballet that ended in three revolutions, led by the men of steel, willing to die and kill for their utopian ideas. I prepared a short description of the main highlights, which I strongly advise you to read to do the city justice. Let us start our journey together, so you would be able not just look, but really see the city in all its splendor.
