Vodka, Matryoshka and Balalayka tour

Wine tasting tour in St. Petersburg

Tour Price : 125 Euro + 15 Euro person for vodka museum Duration : 5 hours Languages: English, Spanish, Russian

We will start in the lobby of your hotel, have a walk along Nevsky avenue to feel city atmosphere and through some tiny inner streets past Church of our Saviour on spilled blood up to the Palace square – learning stories about the city and royal Winter palace on our way. We'll have a subway trip and use public transport if needed during the tour.

Then we will visit the museum of Russian vodka with a tour where you’ll find out lots of amazing facts about its history and production throughout centuries and will have a chance to compare different tastes of it during traditional vodka degustation after the tour. After it, you will have a chance to choose your favourite Matryoshka (our traditional nested doll) which varies greatly in design and size, and then we will get directly to the city birthplace Peter and Paul’s fortress to have a cathedral and prison tour and admire beautiful river views.

Peter and Paul’s cathedral is sepulchre of Romanov dynasty (royal family of Russia) and prison was the main and most severe one during centuries. Returning back to your hotel you will see some more important sites and find out a lot about present day life of Russian people.
