About the tour

In 2019, CNN Travel included the Nevsky Avenue in their list of most beautiful avenues of the world and they were quite right. The Nevsky was destined to become the central street of the capital of the glamorous Russian Empire. Every building here tells a story. Join Anna to learn why the Nevsky Avenue is called the Street of Tolerance and the Street of Banks at one and same time, see palaces and churches that can tell some big stories and see the places where important historic events took place.

Meet your local guide


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.

Anna has been guiding since Apr 2017
