What is this excursion?

In St. Petersburg and the suburbs, there are few places that, in terms of the number of grand ducal palaces, can be compared with the Promenade des Anglais and the outskirts of New Holland. This area is usually not included in traditional tourist routes, although it is here that you can see buildings of rare beauty, many of which have witnessed significant events in the history of our city and our country.

Little-known facts from the history of the Russian Empire and its capital.
A fascinating story of a guide who is an expert on the history and architecture of the city.
The beginning is at a convenient time for you, the route is taking into account the season and weather.
