During city tour you will learn the history of Saint-Petersburg. I'll tell you exiting life stories of the Romanov Dynasty. You will enjoy Russian architecture and cultural heritage. Every building in the city has it's own history and you will hear the most interesting ones.

You might want visit the Church on Spilled Blood and Saint Isaac's Cathedral as they are the most impressive Cathedrals in the city. The fee of each of them is 10 Euro, students pay half, children are free.

St. Isaac's Cathedral by A.Petrosyan

If you decide to go upstairs to the colonnade of St. Isaac's Cathedral you will pay extra 5 Euro. The view of the city from the colonnade is breathtaking, but you should be in a good physical shape as you have to be able to go up 262 steps and there is no lift there.

Peter and Pauls fortress is free of charge. But the entrance fee to the Peter and Paul's Cathedral located on the territory of the fortress is 5 Euro. The church is the burial place of the Romanov family.

The Cathedral of our lady of Cazan and Smolmy Cathedral are free of charge.

I have licences for all the museums, so you don't need to pay for their entrance.
