Most visitors to St. Petersburg spend their days on the side of the Neva River where the Hermitage and many grand cathedrals line the water or the main street, Nevsky Prospect. Here is a look at the other side of the river, where the city started.

I just led the most fantastic tour to Russia in the world! The food was great. The city was fascinating. The accomodations were much better than many in the group had anticipated, and my tour group felt totally safe at all times. Much of this had to do with the quality of other members of the M&M Art Ltd. tour staff (all Russian). I'm the American owner, and I have a Ph.D. from the Russian Academy of Arts. I have personally been to Russia over 100 times. It is great fun dealing with different situations while imparting my love for the city of St. Petersburg. I will take groups of never more than twenty people to Russia on 11 May, 2001, and on the 15th of the next five months. If there is enough interest I will be happy to consider a winter tour schedule as well.

Peter the Great wanted a modern Russia, so he built a glorious capital to be held up as a beacon of light for his people. Therefore to visit St. Petersburg is not just to visit another place, but to experience a tsar's vision for the future of an entire country.
