Amazing City of Peter the Great including The Usupov Palace and St.Isaac's Cathedral (4 hours)

See the most important monuments and memorials in Saint Petersburg, the famous "Venice of the North", on a 4-hour tour with a professional guide. Admire splendid palaces, impressive historical monuments, tree-lined avenues, beautiful bridges and fabulous canals and hear about fascinating historical facts. Visit landmarks including the Usupov palace - one of the few amazing aristocratic mansions still in existence in St. Petersburg, where the warmth and charm of their erstwhile owners still glows, and St Isaac's Cathedral - an outstanding monument of Russian architecture of the 19th century and one of the greatest dome constructions in the world.

Visit the Yusupov Palace which features original interiors of the 19th - beginning of the 20th centuries. The rooms are decorated in various styles: baroque (the theater), Empire style (gala halls), Oriental style (the Turkish study), neoclassicism (some rooms of the ground floor) and others. The interiors amaze with rich decorations that includes paintings, carving, marble, mirrors, crystal chandeliers, silk, exquisite furniture and so forth. The Yusupov family possessed extensive collections of paintings, sculptures and applied art objects. Some of them are on the display in the palace exposition.

Walk down the winding staircase of the "bachelor's quarters" of the palace into a cellar to look at the spot and listen to a story sending goose flesh down your spine, here on the 17th of December 1916 Rasputin was assassinated, poisoned and shot. You will see the wax figures of Rasputin and plotters and other interesting exhibits.

Enjoy a guided excursion to St.Isaac's Cathedral, formerly main and largest Russian Orthodox cathedral built in St. Petersburg in 1858 by the architect Montferrand, is the fourth highest among the world's cathedrals under the single cupolas. It follows St Peter's in Rome, St. Paul's in London and Santa Maria del Fiorre in Florence. The richly-adorned interior, lined with marble, and with malachite and lazurite columns, was intended for up to 10 000 worshippers. Standing on the broad Isaac`s Square, its golden dome can be seen all over the city.
