My name is Oleg and 2 years ago I together with my soulmate Victoria decided to make our own project. Our desire to travel made us familiar to different touristic projects all around the world. We combined all this in our project "Kopejka World" and now offer you to glinse into the history of the city of St.Petersburg through the windows of Soviet car VAZ-2101 or legendary-known "Kopejka".
At the moment we already have a team:
- Victoria is usually administrating and contacting the client
- Oleg is dealing with the cars maintenance and making new routes
- Veronika is our first and main guide-driver in russian and english
- we have french-speaking Artem&Pavel
- spanish-speaking Darya&Elena
- english-speaking drivers Stas&Konstantin
We are not professional guides, but just St.Petersburg lovers, who will be happy to share it with you.

I really loved this experience. It was better than I thought driving around in a Soviet car. Veronika is a very nice lady and excellent driver. I was very impressed with everything. I highly recommend this tour.

Memorable experience, must try! Veronika is a wonderful guide. She explained about the city’s background thoroughly. We visited the bridges and it was one of a kind.

Veronica was an absolutely lovely host. She took us around spots which we definitely would not have managed to see on our own and provided us insights into the history/significance of the places we saw. She also provided us great recommendations for the remainder of the trip.
