Join a local historian, broadcasting live from the streets of Saint Petersburg, as we visit classic landmarks such as Saint Isaacs’s Cathedral, Senate Square, and stroll along Nevsky Prospect. The video-camera-led virtual tour will weave and wind its way through Saint Petersburg’s classic landmarks, offering opportunities for reflection, dialogue, and an immersive visual experience.

We will start on the Senate Square in front of the Bronze Horseman and look at Saint Isaac’s Cathedral that was the main cathedral of the Russian Empire. We will see the city hall of Saint Petersburg and stroll along Nevsky Prospect, the main avenue of the city. We will explore many monuments along the way and contextualize events as the coup of Catherine the Great, the first attempts at establishment of the republic in Russia, the abdication of the last emperor in 1917, expansion of Russia to the East, and the Siege of Leningrad. 

Led by historian Vadim Malinovsky, this live virtual tour will give participants the street-view of Saint Petersburg and teach us how to find our way through the heart of the city. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased understanding of the planning of the city and its history from 1703 to modern times.

Vadim is a historian (MA) who has graduated from Lomonosov Moscow State University. His focus is contemporary Russian history. He is working on a PhD dissertation on Stalin’s national policy.

A wonderful & illuminating walk through St. Petersburg

Vadim is such a personable, knowledgeable, and welcoming guide. He has a charming sense of humor. I loved the architectural details/stories of the many "blended in" memorials (vs statutes or monuments) that remember the Siege of Leningrad.

Good speaker

Great speaker, but voice kept fading in and out in places. Also, larger video would be helpful. Otherwise, this was very good introduction to St Petersburg.

Technology needs an upgrade

Guide wOrked hard to share the landmarks of his beloved city, St. Petersburg. However, his English halting, repetitive, and a little hard to follow. But the bigger issue is the faltering technology- very frustrating. I hope you will find a better system for him. Also, the camera man/woman appeared to be turning the camera frequently to get a better angle. This is more distracting than helpful. This all sounds very negative, but I don’t intend to be critical, only helpful. The guide is a hero for taking us on such a walk in the cold and rain. Thanks very much.
