Discover the world-famous Nevsky Prospect, lined with the marble palaces of former Russian royalty as well as the city's most fashionable boutiques and art salons arranged in old 18th-century building façades. Admire the beautiful streets and impressive classical and Renaissance cathedrals. Then, enjoy an excellent photo opportunity with a stunning panorama along the Neva's embankments. By the city's Rostral Columns you will have a view of the 5 buildings of the State Hermitage Museum, the Admiralty, and St. Isaac's Cathedral. From here, you will visit the most splendid architectural masterpieces in Saint Petersburg: the Fine Arts Square, the magnificent Church of Resurrection on Spilled Blood, the Field of Mars, the Alexanderinsky Drama Theater, Smolny Cathedral, the Classical Senate building, the Bronze Horseman, and much more. Enjoy the beauty of the third largest square in the world - the Palace Square, home to the Winter Palace and the Alexander Column. During this tour, you will also visit the Peter and Paul Fortress, the oldest construction in Saint Petersburg. The Peter and Paul Fortress was originally created to protect the city, but was eventually used as a political prison. The Peter and Paul Cathedral is a unique example of Russian 18th-century architecture that has remained intact. For almost two centuries, it served as a burial-place for Russian emperors. The last Russian tsar - Nicholas II - and his family were buried in the cathedral's small St. Catherine chapel in 1998.
