SAINT PETERSBURG
Explore Tenant houses of imperial Saint-Petersburg with Irina
As a guide, I see my main goal in sharing the beauty and humorous details of the history of my city to make it interesting and welcoming to all of my guests, make it not only majestic but living, breathing place.
Meet your activity leader: Irina
Hello everyone! My name is Irina, I'm a professional guide of Saint-Petersburg with great love for all of its history, architecture and little secrets. It's all quite complementary to my main studies of culture in SPbSU. I'm mostly interested in the day to day life of other people. The city's architecture is indescribable, views are stunning and places are magnificent, but you can only really appreciate these things next to people inhabiting them - only then you can fully feel the scale and purpose of everything and understand as much as possible. And, of course, the everyday life with all of its little fortunes and misfortunes is great source of laughter.
What to expect
During this excursion we're going to visit the backwater district of the Saint-Petersburg of the XIX century which is now located in the very center of the city! As time passes people constantly change their minds about the simple yet useful and sometimes even beautiful tenant houses, the omnipresent architectural background of the imperial capital and both in its glory and lowliness as they fulfilled an important function.
Almost the whole population of the city lived in these tenant houses and over the year managed to shape them, therefore shaping the look and feel of the whole city.

During this visit I'll tell you exactly how and why our city looks like it does and how many generations, from the poorest to the richest, lived in these houses and shaped the heart of Saint-Petersburg.
