Jewish Heritage in St. Petersburg

Tour about the history of the Jewish community of St. Petersburg with the ride along city's neighbourhoods associated with its prominent representatives and visit of the Grand Choral Synagogue

It might be that some of your ancestors came from the Russian Empire and they had Jewish roots and it would be interesting to know many interesting details about the history of the Jewish population of St. Petersburg from the first days of its foundation until today. We will pass by the city districts associated with the Jewish community of the city and its prominent representatives. We will see the monumental building of Wawelberg Bank at the very beginning of the Nevsky Avenue and proceed to the Kolomna Neighborhood and its surroundings where the majority of Jewish sights are situated, such as the mansions of rich Jewish merchants Ginsburg and Polyakov, buildings of former Jewish bathhouse and private school, the famous conservatory founded by Anton Rubinstein and the Choral Synagogue. We will visit the synagogue, the main in the Russian Empire, once second only to Budapest synagogue in its size and currently the thriving centre of the religious and cultural life of the Jewish population of the city.
In the end of the tour we will taste modern Jewish cuisine in one of the popular cafes on the Island of New Holland, that used to house marine docks and naval prison in the past and currently is one of the most popular recreational areas of the city.
