Languages availableEnglish


You will meet your guide at the foot of a historical building of St. Petersburg. From here, you start the ascent to the top of the building. After reading the safety instructions, you finally access to the roof.

You will discover a surprising tower, which served as an observation point during the Second World War, for the city's anti-aircraft protection. From here, inhabitants watched over the security of their city against bombardments and enemy gunmen. The lives of the residents of the nearest neighbourhoods depended on their work. These guards, often teenagers, warned the search and rescue service that German aircraft was approaching.

Since then, with the help of passionate people and roof walkers, the geography of the known towers has been brought to a state close to saturation. Today, about 165 such towers are referenced throughout St. Petersburg.

During this tour, you will learn more about the city's history, and you will be able to observe the beauty of the Tsars' capital from a unique point of view. The height of the buildings being limited by law, you will really have a panoramic view of the city and its main monuments. You will obviously have time to take breathtaking pictures.
