Once again, by popular demand, Tania Illingworth (née Tolstoy) visits St. Petersburg – the legendary city founded by Peter the Great on the Gulf of Finland in 1703.
This special tour explores the unique and unsurpassed legacy of architectural and artistic treasures, created and collected by successive Tsars, Tsarinas and their courtiers, both in the city itself and the surrounding countryside. St. Petersburg remains the only post WW2 city in Europe to have been rebuilt to its original 18th / 19th century classical skyline and retains an unique architectural harmony. The glorious palaces are fully furnished complete with all their works of art. The tour is accompanied throughout by Tania Illingworth and two guides, including one day at the Palaces accompanied by the fluent English speaking Professor Alexei Leporc, a Curator in the Department of Western European Art at the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg.
