We invite you to take a fascinating journey back in time to explore the sites of the 1917 Revolution - the event which changed the course of the World history of the XX century!
St. Petersburg is knowingly called the "Cradle of the Revolution", it is here that the main revolutionary events developed. Streets and squares of the city witnessed riots and uprisings, assassination attempts and rallies. Here the government was being changed, revolutionary figures were hiding, and the destinies of not only St. Petersburg, but of the whole of Russia were being decided.
This historical tour will introduce you to the familiar silhouette of a warship, the legendary 1st-rank Cruiser Aurora. The crew of the cruiser took an active part in the events of the February revolution. You will visit the Field of Mars, also called "The Square of the victims of the Revolution", see the Emperor Alexander III monument, as well as Smolny Cathedral and the Tavrichesky Palace. Next, you will come to the mansion of the famous ballerina Matilda Kshesinskaya, which witnessed the most important historical events in 1917. Here were the Central and Petersburg committees of the RSDRP (Russian Social Democratic Labor Party), as well as the military organization of the Bolsheviks. The famous historical sites of the city also include the Brandt Mansion, which nowadays houses the State Museum of the Great October Socialist Revolution.
