Saint-Petersburg is well-known with its palaces belonged to the aristocratic families. During three centuries this city was the capital of Russia and the center of high society culture. At the same time it had a plenty of rental houses with their own life and atmosphere. They belonged to different people: Grand Dukes, merchants, priests, architects etc.

To own the rental house was a profitable business  so their quantity was growing very  fast. In the middle of the 19th century the whole city center looked like the net of well yards. Such a principle of construction helped to build as many flats as it was possible.

I will show you some interesting yards and examples of totally different architectural styles. We will find the “ginger-bread” house,  will see the places closely connected with the famous Russian writer Dostoevsky: his last flat, St.Vladimir church and the local food market.

Above all, I will bring you to the magical five-corners crossroad connected with the romantic love-story and where you can make a wish.

Hosted By Tatiana


Dear guests, you are welcome to Saint-Petersburg in Russia!
My name is Tatiana Filimonova. Since 2001 I have been working as a professional licensed guide-interpreter with English-speaking, Russian and Chinese tourists. My second job is teaching of other local guides.
I have two higher degrees: graduated from the Russian State Pedagogical University with a master degree in Philology and St. Petersburg State University with a degree in Journalism.
Additionally, I studied at courses of guides-interpreters with English, and then at the same courses but with Mandarine which I was learning in China before.
Saint-Petersburg is my native city and I will be happy to share my knowledge with you. I'd like to show the Imperial classic views and off-beaten paths as well. We will talk about Russian emperors, historical events, Soviet times and modern life.

This city is magical and different. Let's explore it together! Come Walk with me in Saint-Petersburg!
