Meet your activity leader: Anastasia
Hi! My name is Anastasia. I was born in St.Petersburg and liveв there my entire life. The most important thing for me is music, currently I am a DJ, previously I played in rock-bands on drums and bass guitar. I also dance sometimes and take part in fireshows. Along with it I'm interested in psychology, philosophy, religion and human resources.
What to expect
If you like the sea and everything connected to navy and history - you should take part in this activity.
Kronstadt is very different from other cities. It's small (around 45000 citizens), calm, full of trees and marine symbols - anchors, waves and so on. It was a closed city for a very long time, till 1996, and originally it was a big fortress on an island. The walls of the city fortress are still there.
We will take a small bus near metro station and you will see the Saint Petersburg Dam, a 25 km (16 mi) complex of dams for flood control, numbers of forts around in the sea. Our walking trip will begin from Gostinyi dvor and a beautiful fountain with the base shaped as fortress. I will guide you along Bypass canal to Yakornaya square, the place of such architectural jewels as Naval Cathedral and some others. We will visit renovated Cathedral and I will show you unique pavement made of cast iron. There are some other absolutely unique units of Kronstadt, giant Petrovsky dry dock and its communications, we will see its parts and you will tell you about its past and future.
We will have a break for a lunch and then continue to discover another part of the town with harbour and military ships of Baltic Fleet and other sightseeings.
