Guide/driver wanted for 2 day tours for 4 people May 2009

by rhonambenson

We will be in St Petersburg on a cruise 23/24 May and have 2 days to see some sights. We want the tour to be very casual and flexible . we have researched what we want to see and would require visas to be arranged for us,and a driver / guide to take us around the city.. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

I'd suggest having a look over at the boards on cruisecritic.com, that's where we found ours but that was several years ago

Travel Tips for Saint Petersburg

Palace Square

by furioso

For 200 years the vast Russian empire was ruled from this half-kilometre block at St Petersburg's heart. This is one of Europe's great squares, lined with colourful yet elegant edifices and dotted with monuments commemorating Russia's victory over Napoleon. It witnessed Bloody Sunday in 1905, the Bolshevik's grab for power in 1917, and all-night vigils in the name of democracy during the 1991 coup.

The square is dominated by the green, white and gold rococo fantasy of the Winter Palace, residence of tsars from 1762 to 1917 and the largest part of the famous State Hermitage Museum. In the grey old days visitors came to the city for the museum alone and even today it could probably eat up a week of your precious time. The complex of buildings is the size of a small town - a map and compass are absolute essentials. Four linked riverside buildings - the Winter Palace, the Little and Large Hermitage buildings and the Hermitage Theatre - hold a vast collection of Western European art, with enough chandeliers, over-the-top interior encrustations and tsarist jewels and treasures to have you seeing stars for days. The collection largely dates from the culturally heightened days of Catherine the Great, and many works were gained when Napoleon's power began to wane.

Adjacent to the Winter Palace is the gilded spire of the Admiralty - a good landmark to use when you're out and about. This Empire-style classical building houses a naval college and is replete with trumpeting angels, oversized statues and fountains. In late 2000 funeral services were held here for past graduates of the college who died in the tragically sunk Kursk submarine.

The General Staff Building

by Klod5

Commissioned by Alexander I in 1819, the neoclassical General Staff building was situated so as to formally balance the facing Winter Palace. Its grand triumphal arch was the first Russian monument to the war against Napoleon. Atop the arch stands a bronze sculpture of Victory in her six-horsed chariot--in a nicely lifelike touch, two Roman soldiers restrain the outermost horses, as if to prevent the team from leaping out onto the square. Although the General Staff Building is not open to the public, it is in any case of primary interest for its sweeping, graceful facade.

Visiting Christian Churches

by aliante1981

Christian churches - be they Protestant, Orthodox, or Catholic - are a vital part of Europe’s cultural, artistic, architectural, and religious heritage, and as such you are likely (and I really recommend doing this:)) ) to visit many of them. However, most of them are even today not only major tourist attractions, but also religious sites where people come to pray. This is something to be respected, and here are several pieces of advice I would like to give that might help avoid ill-feeling:

- Dress modestly, covering shoulders and most part of the legs (women in Orthodox churches might be requested to put on something to cover the head);

- Do not speak loudly - all the descriptions are better either read in silence or given outside;

- Try not to walk too much during the service;

- Avoid using flash in your camera near people you see praying;

- Respect notes that forbid entrance to some parts of the church that are designated as ‘for prayer only’.

Following these simple guidelines helped me when I visited, I guess, more than 1000 churches up to date :)))

Dalls Gallery

by mumymama

Walking along Bolshaya Morskaya Street, 53 (off Isaakievskaya Square), don't miss a small gallery on the right hand (free entrance). They display and sell unique hand-made dalls. The owner's name is Varvara. Cosmic Tourist (see photo) is her creature:)

Isidor Yur'evsky and Nikolay Wonderman Church

by bugulma

Near of Nikolsky Cathedral on Griboedov Chanel you may see the yellow impressve Church. It is the church of Isidor Yur'evsky and Nikolay Wonderman. Firstly in the house near by on the embankment there was a house of Estonian community (since 1904) where the altar was sanctified. Later, in 1905-1906 the church was built by architect A. Poleschuck and sanctified to Isidor Yur'evsky and Nikolay Wonderman. The church was closed in 1935 and re-opened in 1994 for the services. In 2003 the church was reconstructed.
