We invite children and their parents to the fascinating thematic tour "Lions in Petersburg".
During the tour you will admire the works of animal sculptures depicting lions, horses, sphinxes and griffins; and hear the amazing legends and myths associated with them. A significant part of our route is dedicated to one of the symbols - the lion. In an entertaining way our guide will tell you about the beliefs that are associated with these graceful animals, incarnate in stone and you will be able to try their luck, making a wish by touching any lion.
Petersburg can rightly be called "lion" city. In the film "Unbelievable adventures of Italians in Russia" a hero, losing hope of finding treasure, famously said that in St. Petersburg lions more than its inhabitants. Indeed, Saint Petersburg is the undisputed leader in number of lions, more than sixty! Here you can find them on the bridges, embankments, in parks, at palaces, on the piers and facades of houses in the form of sculptures and bas-reliefs, coats of arms, and ornamental images. Since Ancient times, lions have been symbols of power, military prowess, belonging to the Royal family.
