About the tour

Did you know that working class women of Saint Petersburg (Petrograd) ignited the Revolution of February, 1917? That revolt resulted in the abolition of the monarchy and later on - the collapse of the entire Russian Empire. Join my tour by the bank of the Moyka river and along some of the oldest streets of Saint Petersburg to learn more about the life of both, outstanding and ordinary women of the city. We’ll talk about the position of women in Russian society in different historical periods. There are some really great stories.

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
