Hello! My Name is Oksana. I'm a native of St. Petersburg. I love to travel, but I prefer to live in my city more. You will understand why, when you visit us. I love to discover new places or just enjoy the old ones.
A few years ago, whilst visiting Eastern Europe, I had the opportunity to participate in several city walking tours, and really adored the experience. Upon my arrival back to St. Petersburg I have deicide to show my city in a similar way, and so this tour came into existence.
I've been showing tourists around this city for many years, but now I've finally composed the ultimate Story of Russia tour, which you will discover the various aspects of this unbelievable city.
What kind of country Russia used to be before Peter the Great decided to Europeanise it? What lead it to the Communist Revolution? What was like to live in the Soviet Union? How much did it change over the last 400 years?
You'll know the answers to all these questions and more with this big walking tour, which is on average 6km long. So get ready. It will certainly be windy, probably it will be cold, but I promise it will be truly interesting. You will see the places that remember birth and death, victories and defeats, stability and revolution.
Russia is so controversial, but thats what makes it diverse.
The tour can also be done by bike!
