During the excursion you will learn that it took only 1 hour 45 minutes to erect the Alexander Column, which is one of the sights of the Palace Square. And that in 1930s there were plans to erect a monument to Vladimir Lenin on the Column. Or that the Bolshoy Prospect of the Vasilyevsky (Basil) Island was initially considered to be a trunk for ships coming from the Spit of Vasilyevsky (Basil) Island to the Gulf of Finland. That is why it is so wide and reaches 85 meters.

Details of the route

The tour envisages visits to the St. Isaac’s Square; The Bronze Horseman, which is a safeguard of the Senate Square; Palace Embankment and the Field of Mars. During the tour, you will get to know the history of the Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood and will have the opportunity to admire its beauty.

It is better to say that the local harmony of the architectural ensemble will not be the end point of the tour but rather an ellipsis which triggers a desire to know more secrets about the gorgeous St. Petersburg.
