The first part of the tour includes a visit to Peter and Paul fortress and the Cathedral. There you will see the Romanov family burial vaults and learn more about the royal Russian dynasty. Most of the Romanovs are buried there. You will also take a look at the Peter and Paul fortress itself. It used to be a prison for revolutioners and political opposition.

The Church on Spilled Blood gives an overview of the most dramatic time in Russian history – the end of the XIX century and the beginning of the XX century. See the spot where Alexander II was assassinated.

After 3 hours city tour to the fortress and cathedrals, you will have some free time in the city. You may go for a walk in the city center, drink a cup of Russian tea with “pirrogi”, go to a local market, visit one of the metro stations of St. Petersburg or do some shopping. Our experienced guide and driver will accompany and advise you.

The tour is visa-free for cruise ship passengers docking in St. Petersburg for less than 72 hours. Red Sun Tours is a licensed tour operator in the Russian Federation and has a legal right to offer visa-free shore excursions for cruise ship passengers.
