For the participants of the XXIX International Mineral Processing Congress, we prepared an exciting program in the “cultural capital” of Russia – Saint Petersburg.

Along with Paris, Rome and Venice, Saint Petersburg is included in the UNESCO list as a city in which all the historical center is taken under patronage.

Saint Petersburg – a mysterious city with majestic architecture and a rich history, more than two centuries served as the residence of the imperial family.

During the construction of the city, Peter I set out to “cut a window into Europe”, to make the country a great European power, both politically and culturally. Realizing the idea of Peter, during the XVIII and XIX centuries, famous European architects created on the banks of the Neva “an open-air museum” from majestic palaces, cathedrals and park ensembles. Today St. Petersburg has more than 100 historical palaces and more than 80 museums.


Program of the tour includes:

  • Evening bus city tour around the center – ideal for exploring the city and the main sights: majestic St. Isaac’s Cathedral, the Bronze Horseman, the Admiralty, the Winter Palace, the Savior on the Spilled Blood and the Field of Mars, the Peter and Paul Fortress, the arrow of the Vasilievsky Island, the Rostral Columns and Old Saint Petersburg Stock Exchange.
