What to expect

In January 1924 Saint Petersburg was renamed into Leningrad. This tour gives you a look to the city during the Soviet Union time. Hear the story of how the government tried to create a new image of the city. Find out how everything from modern architecture to lifestyle and streetlife was dedicated to destroy the "bourgeoisie" and build a new progressive society. Walking along the streets you'll see hidden traces of censorship, retro cars, and communist flats.

This Leningrad walk includes all the main city sights and visits to iconic retro places like Pushkinskaya 10 Art Center, Eliseevy Merchants’ Shop and the "USSR" cafe. See also Kazan Cathedral, Saint Isaac's Cathedral and Bronze Horseman, and visit the Vasilyevsky Island and Peter and Paul fortress. This is your chance to see Saint Petersburg in two different ages - the Imperial and the Soviet ones.

Local private guides will help you find unconventional, non-tourist places that create an unforgettable retro image of Leningrad.
