DAY 2 - SAINT PETERSBURG
Orientation tour with Peter & Paul’s fortress

In the morning after having breakfast the guest will have a chance to get acquainted with one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Founded in 1703 by Peter the Great, Saint Petersburg remains one of the most romantic cities in Russia. Among the many poetical names applied to St. Petersburg the most common are “Northern Venice” and “Northern Palmyra”. The fascinating palaces and cathedrals, beautiful bridges over Venice-like canals, spacious squares and wide streets decorated with edifices of flourished baroque and impressive classical styles, monumental sculpture and lacy iron grilles and, of course, the special spirituality of this city infects everyone who visits it. In 1991 the city was placed on the UNESCO list of world cultural heritage. With numerous palaces and the world famous Hermitage on the banks of the Neva river, the city is Russia’s most popular destination, drawing visitors from all over the world throughout the year.

Peter and Paul’s Fortress
Standing on a small island at the centre of the Neva delta, the fortress was founded in 1703 by Peter the Great and is the oldest building in St Petersburg. Up to 1917, the fortress was mainly used for holding political prisoners, such as Dostoyevsky, Lenin’s brother Alexander and Peter the Great’s own son Alexei. At the heart of the fortress is the Cathedral of St Peter and St Paul, with its landmark gold spire, where all of Russia’s pre-Revolutionary leaders were buried, apart from Peter, Ivan IV and Nicholas II.

St Isaacs Cathedral Is the main church of the city. Commissioned in 1818 by Alexander I, this imperial cathedral with its opulent interior and huge gold dome by its height occupies the 4th place in the world among domed cathedrals. The massive granite columns had to be transported from Finland on purpose built ships and rail and the dome is covered in nearly 100kg of gold; inside, there are 10 malachite columns and a beautiful iconostasis. For visitors with energy to spare, it is possible to climb the several hundred steps of the spiral staircase to the colonnade for a fabulous view of the city

Admire the wonderful collection of the world’s biggest museum – Hermitage. Today, the museum has over 2 million exhibits within its four buildings and attracts around 3 million visitors a year. The exhibitions are diverse with works by Da Vinchy, Raphael, Rembrandt, an impressive collection of impressionists and largest collection of Titians in existence.

DAY 3 - SAINT PETERSBURG
Today we would like to invite you to visit the sumptuous Tsar Village (Pushkin) – summer residence of Russian Emperors. It is located not far from the city – 27 km. Situated in the suburbs of Saint Petersburg The Tsar Village is a unique ensemble comprising several pavilions, beautiful lakes and gardens and a wonderful Catherine Palace.
The summer palace was originally given by Peter the Great to his wife Catherine, and was rebuilt by Italian architect Rastrelli in 1756. The palace is a huge, elegant building with white and hold Baroque mouldings set against a blue background, set in a beautiful park with elaborate gardens, canals and pavilions. Catherine the Great loved living here. Some of the more beautiful rooms include the Great Hall, the State Dining Room, the Amber Room, the Blue Drawing Room, the bedroom of Alexander I’s wife Elisabeth and the Palace Church.

The Amber Room, for years the world's most valuable missing art treasure was restored with the help of German financing and reopened in time for St. Petersburg's 300th anniversary celebrations. A symbol of German-Russian relations, the amber-lined chamber was given by Prussian King Freidrich Wilhelm 1 to Peter the Great and installed in the Catherine Palace at Tsarskoye Selo in 1755. During World War II it was dismantled and taken to German-held Koenigsberg where all trace of it was lost. In the meantime, crowds of tourists have passed through the legendary Amber Room and marveled at the handiwork of the craftsmen from the town of Pushkin located 30 kilometers outside St. Petersburg, In the workshop right where new amber was crafted to match the original room, people are still working with files and planes, sanding machines and tweezers on 40-million-year-old stones.
One kilogram of best-quality amber costs $500. Only 200 kilograms of amber out of every metric ton can be used; the rest is rubbish. The raw material for the amber art works comes from a quarry near Kaliningrad. Mountains of the material are piled up in the corridor of the workshop. Here you may see how 40 Russian craftsmen are turning the stones into art forms.
