I’m inviting you to one of the oldest landmarks around Saint Petersburg, the medieval Shlisselburg Fortress located on an island on the Lake Ladoga. The place is known from as early as 1300’s, however its connection with the recent Russian history is astounding. Apart from being a fortification belonging either to Russians or the Swedish at different times, the Schlisselburg served as a prison for convicted felons. Among the prisoners were many political offenders. The Schlisselburg Fortress is a good place to start the series of Revolution tours from. We’ll see what kind of people were the driving force of the Revolution and how the government and monarchy handled them.
Anna is a a licensed tour guide in Saint Petersburg, Russia. The curious thing about this city is that it’s very young - a bit more than 300 years old. 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.
