We invite you to participate in our author's excursion to the Holy places of St. Petersburg accompanied by professional Russian-speaking guide!
According to Christian tradition every city, regardless of its status and population, has its heavenly patrons - saints. During our tour we will tell you about Saint patrons of St. Petersburg - the Holy Trinity, about the apostles Peter and Paul, after whom the city was named, about blessed Duke Alexander Nevsky, Saint Ksenia, Emperor Nicholas II and his family.
During our excursion you will visit the Chapel of St. Ksenia at the Smolensk Cemetery, where you will be able to take the blessed rose petals and leave notes for Ksenia the Blessed. Next, we will arrive to St. John Stavropigialny female monastery to collect the Holy water & hear an interesting story about the prophecy of St. John of Kronstadt. In the monastery will show you the icon of the Intercession of the Mother of God that miraculously refreshed without the restoration.
In the second part of our program you arrive to the Alexander Nevsky monastery, where you will be able to touch your Holy relics, to listen to sacred chants and visit the Necropolis, where are buried the most prominent generals, writers, artists and scientists (Lomonosov, Dostoyevsky, Tchaikovsky and others).
