Revolutionary Petersburg City Tour

According to a number of key characteristics, our country was not like traditional colonial empires with overseas territories. Perhaps it was precisely this specificity that helped the Russian Empire last longer than others that had decayed decades earlier.
However, no empire could survive the 20th century. Russia, too, was no exception. St. Petersburg is called the city of three revolutions. The first occurred in 1905. And two at once in 1917.
How did it all start? Was a transition to a constitutional monarchy possible? What is common between the Great French Revolution and the Revolution in Russia? How did the revolution come to life on the lives of ordinary people?
On this tour you will see places where the main revolutionary events unfolded.
You will see the facades of the Winter Palace on which guns fired during the revolution. You will see the Russian Bastille and find out why it was called so.

    Stop At: Statue of Lenin at Finland Station (Finlyandskiy Vokzal), Ploshchad Lenina, St. Petersburg Russia

    “We old men may not live to see the decisive battles of this impending revolution,” said a 46-year-old Russian emigrant to a group of young Swiss Marxists.
    Just yesterday, the well-known only in narrow circles journalist-theorist from Zurich today is greeted as a hero of the revolution.
    Lenin is picked up, put on an Armored Car, his slogans are drowning in the noise of the crowd.
    “…Now, day after day, we will see the collapse of European imperialism ... Long live the world socialist revolution!"
    Lenin was removed from the armored car and taken to the mansion of Matilda Kshesinskaya, who now serves as the headquarters of the Bolsheviks.
    The monument itself was installed in 1926. In 1924, after Lenin's death, a competition was announced for a monument to Ilyich. The participants of the competition were offered an armoured car "Austin" of the so-called 3rd series as a sample of the armored car.

    Stop At: Museum Of Political History, Ulitsa Kuybysheva, 4, Sankt-Peterburg, Russia, 198218

    Matilda Kshesinskaya's mansion – a beautiful art Nouveau building was built especially for the prima ballerina of the Mariinsky theater, honored artist of the Imperial theaters. She was a mistress of the future Tsar Nicholas II of Russia prior to his marriage
    Kshesinskaya escapes from his mansion with his son Vova.
    Arriving from the Finland Station in the Kshesinskaya mansion, Lenin first speaks from the balcony
    “The imperialist war (against Germany) should turn into a civil war (against its own capitalists)”
