You will learn a lot about the history and modern life of the city. The tour is cognitive and very spectacular.

The banquet will take place at the Palace of Grand Duke Vladimir (now known as the Scientists' House).

In 1862, the land on the Palace Embankment was given for the construction of palaces for Grand Duke Alexander and Vladimir. A.I. Rezanov was engaged in this project. He created an architectural masterpiece. Palace rooms were decorated with rich collections of paintings, sculpture, weapons, objects of decorative art. It soon became one of the centres of the social life of St. Petersburg. It was called "a small imperial court".

Since 1920 the palace was called "the House of Scientists". It was managed to keep in its original form all the interiors of the palace, the opulent decoration of the state rooms, the majesty of the grand rooms.
