This is a historical St. Petersburg tour with a twist: instead of stopping off at the city's many monuments, you'll go on a journey off the beaten path for a dose of real local life. Join a guide to see what makes St. Petersburg tick for the people that live there.
Begin this St. Petersburg tour at the information booth on the Palace Square. This square is the heart of St. Petersburg local life and where the city’s most important celebrations always take place.
Continue along St. Petersburg's busiest street, Nevsky Prospect, home to restaurants, theaters, and museums. All along here, you’ll find Russian history side-by-side with the modern life of local youth – and with a St. Petersburg citizen by your side, you’ll really feel the local life.
Turn off Nevsky Prospect and head toward the Vladimirskaya metro station. Here, you can see a monument to the famous Russian writer Dostoevsky, who lived and worked in one of the houses nearby.
Then, go down into the metro where you’ll see the oldest rail line with its most unusual interior. Your guide will show you some secrets of the metro and will explain why St. Petersburg’s system is so much more than just public transport. From there, head to the Vitebsky railway station, one of the most beautiful places in St. Petersburg, and constructed in the same style as the Eiffel Tower.
Your St. Petersburg city tour ends next to Vosstaniya metro station, where you'll visit a local bar for a taste of the good stuff in a traditional Soviet-style vodka room.
