MariaRose Private Tours on

"We were 4 adults and a 13 year old, it was the most amazing 5 hour tour. The young guide was so knowlegeable, approachable soo friendly. We were treated so well. When we compared our tour with those on our ship that took a huge group tour, we were so glad we made this decision. As they are a registered Tour group, immigration has your name on their list, and everything was easy. No following huge crowds of people. We had such wonderful personal service that cost less than the crowded tours from the Ship. Highly recommended."

TOUR DESCRIPTION

Take this tour and you'll soon understand why Saint-Petersburg is known as the "Venice the North". You'll cruise along Fontanka  and Moika rivers, Griboyedov Canal and more., You'll see the famous sights of Saint- Petersburg from the boat which takes you to the manificiant hightlights of the historic downtown. Definitely, one of the best ways to do sightseeing in the city of rivers and canals is taking a boat ride". More than 70 rivers and canals wind their way through the city, with around 400 bridges crossing them.

A new perspective on the city can be gained from water-level and the boat trips visit some areas of the city that might not be reached on ground. There are trips with interesting route in the historical part of the city. From thevery outset the city was built on water, on numerous islands in delta of the Neva River. The combination of fascinating architecture and water in St.Petersburg, as well as in Venice, has a special charm.

The looming silhouettes of the bridges, the grandeur of the waterways, the granite embankments with their various piers and slipways, the 18th and 19th century palaces and parks on the banks of the Neva and the canals, architectural landmarks in the form of the domes and spires of churches and cathedrals, visible from a long way off - all this contributes to the unique appearance of the "Venice of the North", one of the world's most beautiful cities.

After One-hour boat ride visit the gorgeous Resurrection Church (the Church on Spilled Blood): the second largest mosaic museum in the world with its 7000 m2 of mosaic covering the facade and interior walls.

The cathedral in the pseudo-Russian style was founded to commemorate the tsar-martyr Alexander II on the exact site where he was mortally wounded in 1881.This Church is absolutely marvelous inside and out. It's the type of archetechture you dream of before you come to Russia. Don't miss it!

After having a Restaurant dinner discover "the Russian Museum - the world's largest museum of Russian art". The collection of the Russian Museum numbers about 400,000 works and covers the entire history of Russian fine art from the 10th century to the present day. It reflects virtually every form and genre of art in Russia, including a unique collection of Old Russian icons, works of painting, graphic art and sculpture, decorative and applied art, folk art and numismatics, as well as the world's finest collection of Russian avant-garde. Today the unique and comprehensive collection of the Russian Museum is an exceptional opportunity of an all-round, detailed study of the development of artistic ideas and culture in Russia over a period of nearly two and a half centuries.
