RUSSIAN FOOD TOUR & ST PETERSBURG PRIVATE TOUR WITH A FRIEND

It is about 6 hours with the local friend. Traveling a lot myself I came to conclusion that it’s very important to understand the country through the food experience. Well, I suggest to combine the city sightseeing and chance to try the most famous Russian dishes. We start with Russian donut called as “Pyshka” which we can chew on the way through the courtyards of the city. Moika river is perfect for the photo shooting. We will explore prestigious part of Nevsky Prospect, you will learn about beef stroganoff and Stroganov’s palace, as well where Pushkin met his second before the pistol duel. We will visit St Isaac’s cathedral passing by the last address of Chaikovsky. After having a look of the main monument devoted to Peter the Great and photo of the Winter palace I offer to taste good Russian soup: famous Borscht or meat Solyanka or Porcini mushroom soup, you choose yourself. As a drink I suggest Russian herbal tea or maybe try Kvas (drink is based on fermented bread). Our next destination is Savior on the Blood church, then field of Mars, Summer Garden and Mosaic courtyard.

We can finish the day making decision which cutlet is better: chicken Kiev or Pojarsky. Or you can have the best dumplings in your life! Perhaps you will be brave to eat beef Stroganoff!
