About the tour

The Palace Square was the main square of the glamorous Russian Empire. Now, it is the hub of cultural life of St.Petersburg. There’s a former residence of the Romanovs royal dynasty - the Winter Palace - now known as the Hermitage, one of the biggest museums in the world. However, this central and seemingly most studied and walked through location has its hidden corners and many stories to share. Anna can’t wait to share them with you.

Meet Anna Levina

However, in only three centuries the city’s managed to become one of the most magnificent cities of the world. Anna's goal is to tell the world about the beauty of her city, its history, Russian culture, heritage and how it all has influenced our everyday life. Regardless of your age, interests, origin and political views, St.Pete should be on the bucket list of every globetrotter because it has everything to meet the needs of the most sophisticated travelers.
