I'm a licensed official guide in St. Petersburg. I'm in love with my city and I want to convey this love to everyone. The word that most often appears in the suggestions of my tourists is "fascinating" and “fun”. And this is how I go :), mixing serious things with urban stories and fun material, instead of dry information. I try to build my tours in an interactive way. Apart from that, I have my own "tricks" that make life and work very easy.

About the Tour

On this walk with a local guide, in love with his city you will enjoy amazing views and extraordinary architecture of the city full of history.

You will know, shortly, the key figures in the development of the Russian Empire and listen to the story of how and why the city appeared, and why it became capital in its time.

By observing buildings from various eras and centuries, you will absorb the spirit of the magnificent St. Petersburg.

By walking and breathing the air of the cultural capital of Russia, you will see the hidden secrets of the city. You will get to know the origin of the famous matrioshkas, Fabergé eggs and the reason for such a sharp jump from Russia to the European stage. We will pass from the birth of the city to World War II.

We will visit the cathedral of Our Lady of Kazan and 2 other churches comparing 3 different religions. We will also see the widest bridge in the world and we will reach the Palace Square with the famous Hermitage and the Neva River, the largest river in Europe. Finally, we will teach to the bravest how to drink vodka.

You'll understand, because the Russians themselves say that they come to Moscow for work and to St. Petersburg - for love!

Genial Ruslan! Es muy simpático, sabe mucho de historia y relata de manera interesante situaciones ligadas a los diversos lugares que visitamos. Todos ellos muy emblemáticos de la ciudad. Recomendadísimo!

MARÍA 11 months

El tour fue estupendo, muy ameno (tres horas en una ciudad a 4ºC, la palabra "ameno" tiene muchísimo valor). Realmente nos transmitió una cantidad de datos históricos super preciosos y muy interesantes. No se hizo pesado en ningún momento, y contestó a todas las dudas que le planteamos encantado.
