Virtual Moscow & St. Petersburg
Virtual tour hosted by Olga
What you'll do
The starting point for any trip to or experience with Russia is Moscow and St. Petersburg. These two cities consistently take top honors in the annual World Travel Awards and for good reason: world-famous museums, theaters, palaces, historical landmarks, and the list goes on. Understandably, there isn’t just ONE virtual tour that can do these cities justice; we actually offer EIGHT different virtual tours of Moscow & St. Petersburg! Below is a list to choose from; these tours are always available for private groups, and at different times during each month if you’d like to join a public group:
-Virtual Moscow: Join me for a virtual tour of Russia’s capital. We will use 360 degree panoramic views and exclusive pictures to make you feel like you are really there in the heart of Russia!
-Virtual St. Petersburg – This tour is a perfect opportunity for you to see the highlights of Russia’s “Venice of the North”: time-honored royalty, majestic canal views, onion-shaped church domes, and much more!
-Virtual Summer Palaces of Tsars – Join me as we explore three royal estates of the Russian royal family, outside of St. Petersburg: Catherine’s Palace (Pushkin), Peterhoff Palace, and Pavlovsk Palace.
-Virtual Hermitage Museum – Although 90 minutes can hardly do it justice, come explore the world’s 2nd largest museum, St. Petersburg’s Hermitage Museum.
-Virtual Hermitage Museum: Art Only! – This tour is for art-lovers, as we’ll do a deep dive into some of the Hermitage’s most famous (and not-so-famous) pieces of art!
-Virtual Canal Cruise – Join me for a virtual canal cruise in St. Petersburg. St. Petersburg is known as the Venice of the North because of its beautiful rivers and canals. Many of the important buildings in the city were built to be viewed from the water.
-Virtual Hidden Gems of St. Petersburg – Because Russia’s “cultural capital” is filled with so many famous destinations, often equally-deserving but less-known places get overlooked. On this virtual tour, we’ll explore two of those places, the Yusupov Palace and the Faberge Museum (yes, THOSE Faberge Eggs!).
-Virtual Field Trip: Russia for Kids! – This virtual field trip to Russia is for kids up to 12 years old. We will use our imagination, 360-degree panoramic views, games and dancing to learn about this mysterious country halfway around the world. What kids eat, how they dance, and how they travel; you’ll learn these things and more in this interactive Russia experience! ***Great for individual classes or home-school groups!

How to participate
Meet your guide, Olga
Hi, my name is Olga and I grew up in St. Petersburg. I have been enchanted with museums and Russia’s rich history since I was a little girl, starting when we would take school field trips to the Hermitage Art Museum. I have been guiding international guests visiting Russia since 2012, to many of my favorite spots in St. Petersburg and Moscow: Peterhoff Palace, the Hermitage, the Faberge Museum, churches, mansions, and the list goes on. Since the world went into quarantine in 2020 due to COVID-19, I have been providing virtual tours to Moscow and St. Petersburg and continue to show off Russia’s beauty and history, just on Zoom rather than in-person. I hope to meet you soon!
