Excellent tour & explanation of Russian history via centuries of Art

I thoroughly enjoyed the visit to the Church of the Spilled Blood and the Russian Museum. My guide Evgeniya Subbotina was extremely knowledgeable & explained the history of the Church & the history behind the paintings at the Museum very well. I would definately recommend this tour to other visitors interested in seeing the evolution of Russian history through.

La guida Anna era molto gentile e preparata.. Mi ha aiutato a capire e scoprire al meglio quanto visitavamo.. Inoltre mi ha permesso di saltare una fila di una buona mezz’ora.. Comodo e pratico, consiglio questo pacchetto!
