About
Enjoy a walk around shady alleys, lined with beautiful sculptures of the Summer and Michailovskyi garden, that was a part of the former. See the place where Peter himself planted trees and designed the layout of his future garden, which was to rival Versailles and became a playing ground for future emperors. Find out stories, connected with the House of Romanov dynasty, which ruled Russia till the XX-th century. We visit places surrounded by intrigue, mysteries, plots and even murder as it was too often during Russian history. Visit one of the most romantic places in St.Petersburg, St. Michael's castle, which was designed by Paul in order to protect himself from plotters, but still he could not escape his destiny and died a tragic death according to all the prophecies that predicted it. We visit Saviour on the Blood, a Russian revival-style cathedral, which was built on the same exact spot where Alexandr II (the Liberator) was blown up by a bomb, thrown by the hand of a terrorist.

What an amazing time we had learning historical facts of the revolution. Our guide was a fountain of knowledge and answered all questions before we even asked them.

We were lucky enough to have Ribin as our guide . He is the most amazing guide and I would highly recommend him. His knowledge is mind blowing ! He can answer any question and has shares very unique details about the history . He has a story telling way to present his tour which makes it easy to follow and remember. You will not be disappointed. Apart from the incredible knowledge he is a very reliable person , is there on time and offers his help if you need it. He is energetic and will make sure you see as much as possible on your tour .
