Saint Petersburg Jewish Heritage Tour
Saint Petersburg has an extremely profound history when it comes to religions and perhaps the one that has more than most is Judaism. In this full-day Saint Petersburg Jewish Heritage Tour, we are offering you the chance to see some different sights while enjoying our comfortable vehicle and being shown around by our professional tour guide. Let’s take a look at what they day includes;
Morning - This Saint Petersburg Jewish Heritage tour is perfect if you are going on a cruise because we can meet you at your ship; we prefer to start early in the morning although this will be adjusted depending on the time of your arrival. We start this extensive tour at the Grand Synagogue where you will learn all about the Jewish community in St Petersburg and how it has changed throughout history to how it stands today.
Then, we will pass Kolomna which is an old district that was pivotal to the Jewish community in the 19th Century and the home to the Great Choral Synagogue. Also, we will briefly stop at the St Petersburg Conservatory where a number of famous Jewish residents graduated. Towards the end of the morning, we will continue around St Petersburg showing you the famous streets, landmarks, and monuments throughout history whilst learning all about them. Just before lunch, you will tour the State Hermitage Museum.
Lunch - The cost of this tour does not cover lunch, but if you wanted to taste some of the local cuisines, we could include a lunch break before continuing into the afternoon.
Afternoon - When you feel refueled and ready to go, we will take a visit to the Jewish community center before then visiting the Russian Museum of Ethnography or more importantly, the Jewish section of the museum. This area boasts fantastic information regarding the history of the Jewish people in Russia and how the community has evolved over time. It is important to note that this is not open on a Monday so will be replaced with a visit to a famous cemetery where Rubinstein and more were laid to rest.
To finish the St Petersburg Jewish Heritage Tour off nicely, we will take you straight back to your ship in plenty of time before you move on to a new location! Costs include travel, tour guide, bottled water, blanket visa, admission to the sights, but not lunch.
