Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
This is a great 3-hour tour that lets you see all the main sights of St Petersburg in a short space of time. The beautiful and totally unique Church of the Saviour on Spilled Blood is my personal favorite!
What You Can Expect
As you travel, let your guide know if there’s anything you want to see more of during your tour. Your itinerary is flexible, so your sightseeing can be tailored to suit you.
Start with a stroll around Palace Square, the stunning main square ringed by elegant imperial-era buildings, including the ornate, baroque Winter Palace. Wonder at the beauty of the square as your guide regales you with tales of the October Revolution in 1917, when Bolshevik crowds, impassioned by Lenin, stormed the Winter Palace from this very spot.
Snap photos of the sprawling Peter and Paul Fortress across the water from the Palace Embankment, and then visit three of the city’s splendid Russian Orthodox cathedrals.
Next, walk to the Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood – one of the city’s showpiece sights. Ogle the gilded interior and onion-shaped domes as your guide charts how the church was built to honor Tsar Alexander II, the reformist ruler who was assassinated on the site in 1881.
