What you'll do

The most comprehensive cathedrals tour with inside visits of the Saviour on the Spilled Blood Church, St. Isaac's Cathedral and Kazan Cathedral.

How many churches are there in St. Petersburg? Why were the churches closed in the USSR? What are the differences between Orthodox and Catholic christians? Why Russians do NOT smile? What happened to Pussy Riot? How Russian church is related to 'Pokemon go'?

All of these question are to be answered and discussed during the 'THREE CATHEDRALS TOUR'!

I will arrive to the meeting point 10 minutes before the tour start time and wait till we're all gathering. After the group acquaintance I will begin my story about Russian tzars, famous people of the past, the historical sites we pass by and, of course, religion in Russia as our major subject. During the tour we're going to visit 3 cathedrals: Church of the Savior on the Spilled Blood, St. Isaac's cathedral and Kazan cathedral (about 30 min inside of each one). They're all situated quite close to one another but be prepared for outdoor pastime as well.

Tickets are already booked - no need to queue!

We will finish the tour at the St. Isaac's square where we are going to take a group picture (I e-mail it to every person in the group). I will be glad to answer any questions if there are any left

Albina was a wonderful tour guide - we did a few whilst in Russia and she was up there as one of our favourites. She’s a great storyteller, speaks excellent English and kept us all engaged and curious for the whole tour :) would recommend to anyone!

Albina’s cathedral tour was wonderful! She shared so much knowledge with me, I wouldn’t have been able to have gathered if I visited the cathedrals by myself. It was very interesting to learn about the Russian religious history and how this connects with political stories. I was fascinated by the sights on the tour. Albina was also extremely friendly and welcoming. Thank you Albina! 5/5 - I thoroughly recommend this tour.

The highlight of Saint Petersburg. Albina speaks fluent English and is extremely knowledgeable. On the day we went, it was just the two of us so it was like a private tour, we got to ask so many questions about Russian history, life, and anything that popped into our head. The churches are a great way to learn more about the history in general and Albina always pointed out sights and the greater history behind things on the walls between them and around. I couldn’t recommend it enough.

Albina’s tour was a wonderful introduction to St Petersburg for us. The information that she shared with us about the history of the Churches and their surrounding areas pertained to her personal insights as well as little known facts that we wouldn’t have known about.

Albina is a fantastic guide: fluent in English and with a deep knowledge of Russian history and culture. We can really recommend her walking tour of three churches. She spoke not only about the churches, but of the history of St Petersburg and was able to answer all our questions in an informed and personal way.
