2-day PRIVATE Jewish Heritage shore excursion

"The Jewish Heritage» tour is a focused presentation of Jewish life in Russia past and present. Our carefully chosen guides will share their knowledge of the life of the Jewish community in St Petersburg. Along with the must-see museums, you will have an opportunity to visit the most important places connected with the life of the Jews living in St Petersburg: the Synagogue, the exhibition of the Russian Jews at the Ethnographic Museum and the Jewish Cultural Center YESOD. To enjoy your two days in St Petersburg, you will be treated with Kosher lunches on both days.

Your stay in St Petersburg will bring unforgettable memories to you, as we have combined the visits to the significant historical, artistic and architectural places of interest with the Jewish focused sights. By the end of your second tour day, you will be amazed by how well the heritage of the Jewish population is preserved in modern Russia.
