Join Retro Leningrad Walking Tour to explore the history of Leningrad in the Soviet times.

St Petersburg, then called Leningrad, was the place where the Russian revolutions took place and where the Soviet Union was founded. There are still many places in St Petersburg which remain unchanged since the Soviet era, serving as a reminder of the city’s and country’s past.


  • Meet your guide at Palace Square near the Alexander Column at 11:00.
  • Among your first stops will be the famous Astoria Hotel— the place where Hitler planned to celebrate his victory over the USSR. You will also see the Bronze Horseman, a symbolic landmark of St Peterburg, and St Isaac’s Cathedral.
  • Walking along the Nevsky Prospekt, the main road of the city, you will see traces of WWII bombing. Then you will arrive at a shop selling traditional Russian ‘pishki’ — a type of doughnut, considered Russia’s first fast-food. The doughnuts are made and served just like 60 years ago.
  • The next stop is the Griboedov Canal with the famous Zinger buildingKazan Cathedral and the Church of Our Savior on Spilled Blood.
  • Reaching the Fontanka River and Anichkov Bridge, you will turn left to see the haunted St Michael’s Castle and the eternal flame on the Field of Mars.
  • The tour will end in front of the Troitsky Bridge so you can choose either go back to Nevsky Prospekt or to cross the bridge and visit St Peter and Paul Fortress.
