Flea Market Walk and Tea at Artist's Studio
Let's visit the main flea market in the country situated in a picturesque neighbourhood in the northern St. Petersburg! We will get there by metro and we will head back to the city centre by private vehicle. At the market we will see numerous items from the everyday life of the Soviet households, as well as some pre-revolutionary antique objects. Some of these items might serve as perfect souvenirs from your trip. We will find out more about the area where the market is situated by visiting the beautiful wooden church and the workshops of artists in the old wooden house where we will enjoy afternoon tea talk with its residents.

If you visit Flea Market on your own and you don't speak Russian and look like a local, you are likely to pay higher prices and even end up with a forgery.
