Winter tours in St Petersburg

Were you told that winter time is not good to visit St. Petersburg? Do not believe it!

If you decide to come to St. Petersburg in winter you will fully enjoy the fantastic beauty of the city covered with snow.

There are also several things which you can do only in Russia and only in winter. You can have a famous "troika ride" which we can organize in the most beautiful park of Pavlovsk. If you come during New Year and Christmas time (Russian Christmas is after New Year - on the 7th of January) you will be able to visit Christmas Fairs and see the City beautifully decorated for the festive days. You will have a chance to enjoy the best ballets and operas in our most famous theaters for quite reasonable price.
