A nocturne of rain-pipes

The title of this text refers to a famous poem by Mayakovsky – a poet of the Silver Age, who lived and created his immortal poetry in Saint-Petersburg. Our city is closely associated with a highlight of Russian culture and art, it is a home town for lots of our local musicians, ballet-dancers, writers, scientists, philosophers and artists. A  tour to St Petersburg offers you a marvelous experience, only here you can grasp a feeling of a mysterious and deeply spiritual Russian soul, witness all the main touristic attractions, visit historical sites where the great events took place.

Visit Peter and Paul’s fortress – the first building in the city (but for the Cabin of Peter the Great). The history of our city started with laying the first stone in the foundation of its walls. Be astonished at the legendary cathedral of the fortress. It is said, that the angel at the top of the spire guards the city, and as long as it is safe – Saint-Petersburg will stand. As it is obvious, the fortress and the cathedral are dedicated to Apostles Paul and Peter, the latter was chosen as a saint patron of the city. Take photos at the Bazil Island, have a look at the Twelve Collegia, the headquarters of Saint Petersburg State University, designed by Domenico Trezzini. The island itself is an enormous student campus – there are various colleges, universities and institutes there, along with hostels, cheap hotels, old parks and architectural masterpieces. There are always a lot of youngsters out there: students, post-graduates, young professors.

At St Petersburg tour you will meet Sphinxes – ancient guards and watchmen, creatures, who can steal one’s soul or bless with eternal bliss. One can touch their heavy heads and make a wish, but beware! The legend says that at nights those semi-lions semi-humans change their shape, jump off the stone pedestals and start chasing lonely strangers. The northern capital was building fast and it was building to last – but for the October Revolution it would have been the centre of Russian Empire till the present moment. The citizens of this city fight for their liberties and rights both with a sword and a cross. The apostolic zeal of Russian clergymen and crusading ferocity of orthodox warriors resulted in great victories. Remote monasteries were citadels of literacy and chronicles, the city itself used to be overcrowded with luminous noblemen. This city became a home for enclosed orders and arcane services. Despite hindrance Saint Pete flourished and got prosperous. The modern successors of primitive Finno-Ugric tribes which used to live here have nothing in common with their ancestors, but still they are saving some hints of ancient traditions. Come and see all the miracles of the northern land.
