The Beginning of Saint-Petersburg: dreams vs reality
What's quest tour about
Peter the Great is the most famous Russian tsar and the first Russian emperor. He drastically changed the course of Russian history as we now speak of two main periods: before and after Peter.
We will go on a short walk around the very center of the city, though Peter never intended it to become the center. You will find out about the plans Peter the Great managed to put into action, and about those that never came to life, about what stood in his way, and what sacrifices he had to make to reach his goals.
We will start in the heart of Peter’s St. Petersburg, right in front of the Admiralty. We will take in views of the Neva River, talk about floods and their causes, walk through the former grounds of the Admiralty to finish our discussion of Peter’s role in history by the first monument in St. Petersburg which was dedicated to him: the Bronze Horseman.
This is an Audio guide. You will need earphones for the quest tour.
