1917. Petersburg is the capital of the Russian Empire. It becomes a place of the event which forever changed the face of not only our country but the entire world — October Revolution. Soon, the capital was moved to Moscow, but Leningrad (Soviet era name of St. Petersburg) remained the second important city of Soviet Union. It was the cradle of the 1917 Revolution. Many sad events of the Stalinist repression happened in the local KGB Headquarters (aka Big House). Almost three years during World War II Leningrad was in the blockade, which killed almost all the citizens who didn’t escape.

On our Communist Petersburg Tour you will learn about the most important events of the communist past of St. Petersburg and see the most important sights, which are not included in the Free Tour:
