St.Petersburg - Petrograd - Leningrad. City of Revolutions Tour
. Panoramic tour with the visits of the Cruiser Aurora and one of the historic apartments where Lenin was hiding from the Provisional Government.
The Russian Revolution of 1917 that followed from the World War I, was one of the most explosive political events of the 20th century and had deeply tragic consequences for the country's residents and its culture.
The violent revolution marked the end of the Romanov Dynasty and centuries of the rule of the Russian tsars. After the Revolution, a new order of things was established and the European borders were completely redrawn. St Petersburg, Petrograd (the name of the city between 1914 and 1924) or Leningrad (between 1924 and 1991), is often called the Cradle of Russian Revolution, as all 3 revolutions in the country's history started from here – the Revolution of 1905, the February Revolution of 1917 and the October Revolution of 1917. As it was the capital of the Russian Empire, it was also home to all the major political conspiracies and uprisings that led to revolutions.
On this tour, you will get an insight into the key events of the year 1917 in St. Petersburg and see where and how they were unfolding. Step by step, day by day we will follow the streets of the city where the angry and hungry women called for bread in the outburst of the February Revolution and where later the political intrigues of Bolsheviks led to the dismissal of the Provisional Government and the October Revolution.
You will see the city spots and buildings related to these cursed days and their protagonists – the royal family, Alexander Kerensky, Vladimir Lenin, sailors and the others...
You will visit one of the apartments where Lenin was hiding from the temporary government (Aliluev Apartment or Elizarov Apartment) and get on board of the legendary battleship, Cruiser Aurora, that joined Bolsheviks and gave a signal to the beginning of the Social Revolution on October 25, 1917.
