1917: St. Petersburg is the capital of the Russian Empire. It then becomes the location of the event which forever changed the face of not only Russia as a country, but the entire world: the October Revolution. Soon, the capital was moved to Moscow, but Leningrad (the Soviet-era name of St. Petersburg) remained the second most important city of the Soviet Union. It was the cradle of the 1917 Revolution. Many sad events of the Stalinist repression happened in the local KGB Headquarters (also called 'the Big House'). For almost three years during World War II, Leningrad was in the blockade, which killed almost all the citizens who didn’t escape. On this communist St. Petersburg tour, you'll learn about the most important events of the communist past of St. Petersburg and see the most significant sights. Your walking tour will end by Gorkovskaya metro station, near Peter and Paul Fortress.
