The Imperial Road: From Winter to Summer Live Tour

Saint-Petersburg, Russia Architecture, Art, Culture, History
  • Languages English, Chinese, Russian
  • Duration 60 Minutes

Saint-Petersburg for almost three centuries has been the capital of Russian Empire.  The founder of the city Peter the Great really wanted to build it grand and magnificent. It was his idea to name himself Emperor and to call the country Russian Empire. Royal family lived in their main city Saint-Petersburg and possessed many residences here.

The palaces were separated for winter and summer season. Such a fashion came from the European countries. All these buildings were different in size and in style. I’d like to show you such an example, talk about the most beautiful central part of the city and the royal mode of life.

You will know the history of  the largest Russian museum Hermitage and the special “good luck” statues, will discover the highest building in the city center and will see the palace which was exchanged for the famous diamond. Also we will have a look at the first public garden in Russia and find out why Saint-Petersburg is called Venice of the North.

We will start on the main square with an absolutely spectacular view and then proceed to the Million street and the Palace embankment full of 18-19th century buildings. At the end you will be surprised about the real favourite palace of Peter the Great and the “garden” island.

Let’s follow the royal family and feel yourselves emperors!

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!
