Saint-Petersburg sightseeing tour and Virtual Reality experience is an audio-guided bus tour through the city’s historical center is a perfect way to begin your acquaintance with Russian Venice of the North. A comfortable bus will take you to city’s main attractions and by using VR glasses you will also be able to see St-Petersburg as it was meant to be by Peter the Great more than 300 years ago. This unconventional excursion uses VR (virtual reality) glasses which allow you to experience the bell tower of Smolny Convent and Saint Isaac’s cathedral’s third building at arm’s length. Peek inside the Hermitage and Savior-on-the-Blood; enjoy the view of Petersburg in the times of Peter the Great. Find yourself in another time and place, the parallel historical world of Saint-Petersburg. The stories are captivating as well. Choose what to believe – an official version of the events, or legends and myth, born at the same time as city itself. Pleasant sound of speaker’s voice in your headphones will immerse you in an atmosphere of historic events.

Afterwards we invite to visit the Fabergé Museum and explore its collection that is made up of over 4000 display items, including the objects of greatest value - nine Imperial Easter eggs made by the House of Fabergé for the last two Russian emperors. Displayed  items also represent the many different things created by the House of Fabergé: Easter masterpieces, fantasy-themed objects, jewelry, miscellaneous small items, silverware, home decor and objects of worship. Explore the restored Shuvalov palace on your own in a most convenient fashion, an audio guide and enjoy seeing the best Fabergé collection in the world!
