Jewish Connections

Culture and History tour in St. Petersburg

Tour Price : Starting from 30 euros per person and above Duration : 3 hours Languages: Russian, English

First of all we visit the Synagogue built in 1893 and recently renovated, the second biggest in Europe; but – not only it… Then – new since 2008 – an exhibition on Jewish life at the Russian empire based on early XXth century collections at the Ethnology museum collected at the pale provinces.  

Places connected with outstanding Jewish persons and special events (to be specified according to the time available) – baron Ginzburg mansion and Stieglitz museum, place of incarceration of the Chassidic rabbi in 1800 and Zionist congress in 1917…

Where did Moses Montefiore stay in St.Petersburg? Who were the best sculptors of Russia in 1870 – 1910? Even a monument to Peter I would fit the theme. Also - the Russian museum (featuring works by Levitan, Antokolsky, Bakst)…

It may be not a special programme – but just an extra topic, to provide certain angle of viewing some city sights, may be making a short diversion from a route (like to see the monument to Jewish victims in Pushkin – the Formula of Grief).
