Do & See

Do and see things you’ve never done or seen before in your life! Visit a soviet-time apartment with sovietic relics and learn about lives of plain soviet factory workers, pioneers and farm workers. Walk along the pages of Dostoevsky somber novels and meet its heroes on the dusky embankments or shaded parks. Dress up for masquerades and ballrooms, get ready to waltz in the same magnificent dancing halls as Pushkin in the 18 century. Not only learn but also take an active part and interact!

Taxi

If you want to take a taxi, you will need to call a reputable taxy company. You will need to give the operator a phone number that you can be contacted on.

Although it is possible to take a car in the street, but it is not advisable unless you have good Russian and a reasonable knowledge of the city. Apart from the obvious safety risks of getting into a stranger's car, the majority of "gypsy cab" drivers are now recent immigrants from Central Asia and the Caucasus who do not necessarily know the topography of St. Petersburg and rarely have GPS. A yellow sign or light on the roof of a car does not mean that it is an official taxi, whatever the driver may tell you.
