In order to know Petersburg well enough, you had to be born here and, preferably, two centuries ago. But a panoramic tour of the city with a visit to the Hermitage, the Peter and Paul Fortress and all the major cathedrals of St. Petersburg is an appropriate way to fall in love with the city within one day. The full schedule will most effectively make you acquainted with the main landmarks of St. Petersburg and its 300-year history.
You will understand why it is called the capital of culture and an open-air museum. Numerous palaces and shining domes of churches embody currently the greatness of past years and architectural unity of different styles and eras.
The guide meets you at the hotel and you go on foot to the Hermitage with a tour of objects located along the way — museums, houses, streets, rivers, and channels. The history of each of them goes back several centuries.
Having skipped the main line to the museum, you’ll find yourself in the building of Petrodvorets with its Jordanian staircases, malachite hall and thousands of masterpieces of world art. Our experienced guide will see you around all the iconic halls and exhibitions, paintings and sculptures and tell you the history of the museum complex and its most important masterpieces. 4 buildings of the museum complex cannot be examined within 3 hours, but this is enough to see their magnificence and get pretty hungry because of walking upstairs and downstairs inside the ancient imperial residence.
Therefore, after the visit to the Hermitage, you will go for lunch to one of the best restaurants in St. Petersburg chosen in advance according to your food preferences.
At this, our Petersburg stories are just beginning. Your personal driver is already waiting for you near the restaurant to take a fascinating tour of the major landmarks of the city.
The history of Russia is inseparably linked with the Christian faith. It is not surprising that there are more than one hundred cathedrals and temples in the capital of Russian culture. You will see the major of them, and the guide will give you a tour of the most famous ones.
- The Peter and Paul Cathedral
- Kazansky Cathedral
- Smolny Cathedral
- Savior on Spilled Blood

Many important historical buildings, museums, and theaters keep their stories. Our English-speaking guide will be happy to tell you about them and answer all your questions. The tour concludes with a transfer to the hotel, and if you still have strength and desire to learn the beautiful, you can finish it in the city.
