Prices for tours to St. Petersburg

Despite the fact that the tourist flow never stops in St. Petersburg, travel agency managers recommend their clients to visit this city in May-September. This time is the high season, so you should be prepared for an increase in the cost of vouchers by 30-70%. The number of visitors to the city becomes a little less at the end of November - mid-December and in mid-January - mid-March, and since these periods are considered a low season, the prices for tours to St. Petersburg at this time delight in their democratic character.

On a note!

When visiting St. Petersburg in the autumn-winter period, it is advisable to take warm windproof clothes and waterproof shoes with you, and regardless of the time of the trip, do not forget to pack an umbrella in your suitcase (rains are not uncommon).

From a vacation in St. Petersburg, it is worth bringing a Russian samovar, imperial porcelain, souvenirs in the form of angels or lions, an umbrella-cane with views of the city, souvenirs with the symbols of the St. Petersburg football club “Zenith”.
