I honestly don’t know which bank of the Neva River is more beautiful than the other, so I’ll show you both of them. This time, let’s watch the opening of the Palace Bridge from the Cape of the Vasilyevsky Island to admire the view of the bridge against the Winter palace. The Annunciation Bridge was the first permanent metal bridge in Saint Petersburg. It was constructed in 1850 and it was designed to open up from the very beginning. However, the construction was quite unusual. There are quite a bunch of stories to share. Get ready for the cherry on top! This time we’re going to see what’s hidden behind the Annunciation Bridge - I haven’t taken you there before!
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.

I love Anna's tours of St Petersburg, this one was probably one of her best. It was fun being amongst the crowds as we watched the bridge openings. But the best part was wandering through the port section and seeing all the wonderful sights on offer. The unexpected was the submarine and ice-breakers. It felt like a bonus to all who continued to keep her company past the standard tour time. She deserved her coffee! 🙂❤
