Overview

What to Expect
During the period of 1924 until 1991 St. Petersburg was known as Leningrad – named after the country’s revolutionary leader. On this 3.5-hour tour your guide will take you to see different Soviet era sites throughout the city.

The first museum you’ll visit is the State Museum of the Political History of Russia. It was the first museum in the country dedicated to historical and revolutionary issues.

By the mid-1920s the museum had acquired a unique collection of revolutionary banner and a valuable collection of leaflets of different political parties, posters, and other objects from that time.

Next on the itinerary is a tour of the Sergei Kirov Museum. This is one of the unique monuments of the Stalin era, and was the largest museum dedicated to a Communist Party leader in Leningrad. Kirov’s 5-room flat that houses the museum is remarkable for its collection of authentic personal belongings.

From 1926-1934, Kirov headed the Leningrad Communist Party organization. He was Stalin´s closest friend and associate. The museum includes exhibitions that reflect the social, economic, political, and cultural aspects of Leningrad life in the 1920-1930s.

You’ll also have the opportunity to see typical Soviet sculptures in a nearby park.
