Before the start of the tour, your guide conducts a safety briefing. All our spots are legal and safe – the route is equipped with special tracks and fences.
The walk lasts an hour and goes through a whole system of roofs – without going downstairs, you will walk along a 200-meter-long route. We conduct tours only on the houses where we have official arrangements with tenants.
You will hear unique stories about Petersburg from the experienced guide and see key dominants: Kazan, St. Isaac's and St. Vladimir's Cathedrals, Church of the Savior on the Spilled Blood, Anichkov Bridge and Peter and Paul Fortress.
After the walk the guide will lead you downstairs – the route ends right where it starts, so you will go down the same safe way.
We advise you to choose morning or daytime excursions. In the first half of the day there is optimal weather for a walk at altitude - thanks to sunlight, the most beautiful view of St. Petersburg opens from the roofs.
We conduct excursions in English in an individual format — together with your company there will be no other participants.
You do not just look at the city from a height, but go through the so-called system of roofs connected together. You will not need to go down, and you will see all the key sights.
We care about the comfort and form of small groups of up to eight people. So everyone will get a safe space for movement and hear all the stories from the guide.
The guides in our company are professionals with more than ten years of experience. Each of them knows a lot of fascinating stories and little-known facts about the city.
A walk passes through one of the pre-revolutionary buildings in the heart of St. Petersburg. From the top you will see the key St. Petersburg dominants.
A cathedral with an amazing history – it changed its location three times, met all the emperors of Russia and survived world wars. From the roofs you will see a gilded dome and the upper colonnade of St. Isaac's Cathedral.
The birth of the Russian fleet, the development of shipbuilding and the sea power of Russia are connected with the Admiralty. In 1719, a weather vane appeared on the building’s spire — a ship — one of the symbols of St. Petersburg.
Kazan Cathedral is famous for its monumental columns - 152 in total. Initially the architect designed two colonnades, so it is still a mystery, why they built only one.
The temple is known for being built on the spot of the death of Emperor Alexander II, and also by for the legends about it – extraordinary resilience from demolitions and shells, the magic of numbers and even some prophecies.
Here, on Island Zayachy, the history of St. Petersburg began. The day when the fortress was built is considered the birthday of the city. Peter the Great himself is buried in the Peter and Paul Cathedral in the fortress.
