St Petersburg Guest Card TECHNICAL question

Hello,

So... if i purchase the card http://petersburgcard.com/

i`m still subject to the entry tickets that i have to obtain form the booth ( line standing etc)- free or not? Or what? Or i have to tap the card at the entrance to the tour or museum and just get in? The main reason i was CONSIDERING the card purchase was the hassle free access to sights/ canal tours/ museums. If it`s not granted ( and only possible in several museums such as Peter and Paul fortress) - it`s total waste of effort ( an money ) IMO.

Please anyone explain...........???

thank you

This may help. I'm in St Petersburg at the moment and we've been here during a 4 day Russian public holiday. None of the queues have been excessive and it seems most of Russia are here. My wife and I don't get Cards from any cities anymore as they aren't really value. You still have to get between attractions (and St P is large) and some places you need 4 hours to do it partial justice and others are quite small. The other consideration is despite the beautiful buildings and contents here, there is only so much gold leaf & art one can take. Forget the card and wing it.
