The tour will take you through the aristocratic part of the city where the richest Russian families and foreigns once lived near St. Isaac's Cathedral and the Neva River. And nearby there was a thriving business of jewelers, bankers and insurance companies.During the walk, you will find out why Bolshaya Morskaya Street was popularly called "diamond" and why the Promenade des Anglais received such a name (and the British have something to do with it).You will see the mansions and palaces where the Nabokovs, Demidov's, Polovtsovs, Rumyantsevs and Russian grand dukes lived, hear about their fates before and after the revolution.

All this and many other unusual stories await you on your walk!
