We invite you to a theme tour of the most mysterious places in St. Petersburg on a panoramic windows bus, accompanied by a professional guide!
In this journey, you will discover quite a different Petersburg, full of legends and myths. You will visit the sacred places of the city, where mysticism intersects with reality. Many of the historical events have unsolved mysteries and still surprise with their appearances in architectural monuments. Mysterious myths of St. Petersburg often do not lead to logical explanation, but their influence is felt by most visitors to our city!
During the tour, you will see a lot of very interesting places and hear mysterious stories related to them: the mystical Emperor Paul I, who died in the Mikhailovsky castle; Admiralty Councilor A.V. Kikin, who built his chambers near Smolny (Kikin’s Chambers) and later laid his head on the block; the prison "Crosses" and sphinxes of Mikhail Shemyakin; the Peter and Paul fortress and its prisoners; the house of the Queen of Spades and the history of the fatal duel – and this is not a full list of what you will see and learn on the tour.
During the tour, three stops are planned: at the Mikhailovsky Castle or at the monument to Chizhik-Pyzhik; at the Sphinxes on the University embankment, at the Smolny Cathedral with the entry visit (~20 min.).
*we kindly recommend that women have their heads covered (please take a hat or a headscarf) while men leave their heads uncovered when visiting the monastery.
