Description

This special tour we start with walking in Kolomna district — which is the most authentic historical part of St. Petersburg. There is the Grand Choral Synagogue in Kolomna district that plays a huge role in life of Jewish people. We are going to visit this holy place.. To find out more about Jewish lifestyle we visit the Museum of Ethnography. Especially interesting for us is the exhibition called 'History and Culture of the Jewish People of Russia'. At the end of the tour we are going to visit the House of Jewish Culture (YESOD) for more information about Jewish lifestyle. A comfortable air-conditioned car with wi-fi on board is at your service. And of course, our professional private guide will be glad to help you to immerse into the atmosphere of Jewish St. Petersburg.

Did you know that Jews in Russia did not have the right not only to live here, but also they might not travel through the territory of Russia until the end of the 18th century? Thus, in St. Petersburg — the capital of a huge empire — the Jewish past was absent until the beginning of the 1860s. At the same time, by the end of the 19th century, the largest Jewish community in the world existed in the Russian Empire. During our tour of Jewish St. Petersburg, you will visit the places where the turbulent and motley life of St. Petersburg Jews took place.
