Day 3

City walk

Wander in the most beautiful city in the world

Free time in the city

This morning, no alarm clock, take advantage of your last day to stroll and discover the sweetness of life in the former imperial capital at your own pace. Stroll along these magnificent canals, and linger in front of the sumptuous churches and imposing palaces.

Why not take advantage of the city's rich cultural life and attend a ballet, an opera or a concert of classical music in the highly respected Mariinsky Theater whose reputation in Russia has nothing to envy that of its Moscow counterpart: the theater of Bolshoi.

Unless you take the opportunity to immerse yourself further in Russian culture by going for example to the Russian baths, called "bania", still very popular throughout the country.

If you want help or support for these or other activities, do not hesitate to contact your personal Immersion-in-Russia advisor, he will answer all your questions and help you achieve all your desires.
