Description of sights, excursions and activities

Saint Petersburg

City tour St Petersburg
is considered to be «the northern capital» as well as the capital of arts of Russia. Countless museums and imperial palaces and beautiful canals. White nights in early summer as a bonus. St. Petersburg was founded in 1703, when Peter the Great seized control of the land surrounding the river of Neva during a protracted war with Sweden. Peter pursued his dream of a northern capital. It took enormous efforts and a significant number of lives to translate the dream into reality. But finally, in 1712 St. Petersburg became the capital and people started coming here on their own account. The best European artistic, literary and musical talents were welcomed and encouraged to settle down in the new growing city where foreign architects, mainly Italian, built fantastic palaces and awe-inspiring churches. St. Petersburg, envisaged by Peter as Russia’s ‘Window to the West’, was moving towards fulfilling its earlier promise in a fast pace and shortly after acquired the state of the cultural capital of Russia which has been kept ever since in spite of any political and social changes.

Peter and Paul Fortress
The fortress is the first settlement and the cradle of the city. It used to be a prison and used to serve as a place of imprisonment for many famous politically engaged personalities. Nowadays it includes the Cathedral of the Saint Apostles Peter and Paul, Commandant’s House museum representing the history of the city, the Engineer’s House, Museum of Space Exploration, the Mint and the Printing Workshops, Trubetskoy Bastion Prison the Neva Curtain Wall archway and more.

The Hermitage
Russia’s most famous Palace and museum, the second-largest art museum in the world. It is located within a complex of several buildings along the riverbanks right in the city centre. In its possession are thousands of art and sculpture masterpieces, archaeological findings and unique craftwork examples, coins, graphics and applied art objects.

Isaac Cathedral
is the second-highest Orthodox church in the world, 101.5 meters high, behind the Cathedral of Christ the Savior of Moscow that reaches 103 meters. There were more than 40 different minerals used for its decoration. The plinth was covered with granite, the walls and floors of the interior of Russian, Italian and French marbles, the columns of malachite and lapis lazuli. In the dome of 21.8 meters in diameter, around 100 kilos of gold were used. Originally it was built as a cathedral but was turned into a museum by the Soviet government in 1931 and has remained a museum ever since.

Pushkin (Tsarskoye Selo)
was the town containing a former Russian residence of the imperial family and visiting nobility. Tsarskoye Selo forms one of the World Heritage site. You will walk around the majestic Catherine palace (once the summer residence of the Russian tsars and now a museum) and the surrounding park which is a masterpiece of landscape arts and see the d Amber Room – a reconstructed chamber decorated in amber panels backed with gold leaf and mirrors, located in the Catherine Palace of Tsarskoye Selo near Saint Petersburg. Constructed in the 18th century in Prussia, the original Amber Room was dismantled and eventually disappeared during WW II.

Murmansk

Snowmobile trip
A beautiful route along the Kukisvum glacier valley to the Kukisvumchorr pass, connecting the southern and northern parts of the Khibin. The end point of the route is Lake Serdovidnoe, from which the Kuniyok river valley is clearly visible. In winter, the lake level drops sharply and ice frozen in autumn at high water levels forms unusual hummocks along the edges of the lake.

Nuclear-powered icebreaker «Lenin»
The world’s first nuclear-powered icebreaker, the first surface ship with nuclear propulsion. Icebreaker was built in the Soviet Union, first and foremost, to serve the Northern Sea Route. After working for 30 years, the icebreaker “Lenin” in 1989 was decommissioned and put on eternal parking in Murmansk.

Aurora Hunt
We offer you a royal hunt for one of the most beautiful natural phenomena! It is undoubtedly included in the must-see list of each person. But the Northern Lights, as nature in general, are unpredictable. Aurora borealis can be seen in winter, since nights at this time of year are much darker, a wonderful glow becomes more noticeable. The most impressive Aurora Borealis occurs during periods of highest solar activity. It is best to go out of town on a frosty, clear night. The sky should be cloudless. Otherwise, the clouds will hide all the beauty. After all, the very phenomenon of the northern lights originates in the upper atmosphere. From ancient times, the Northern Lights attracted people with its mysterious light, many legends developed about it. In the east, there is a belief that one who has ever seen the Northern Lights will live happily ever after the rest of his life.

Lesnaya Elan’
We are heading to Lesnaya Elan’ – the most famous in the north saami village. It is a settlement which still lives following the old traditions and rules having very strong relationship with nature and wilderness. Will have a chance to try husky safari. You will be riding 3-4 person at the time around a lake. Saami settlement – see how saami lived here long before Murmansk was founded and figured out how to live in peace in conditions of cold and aggressive northern nature.
