"THE CITY IS READY!": How to plan a sightseeing tour around St. Petersburg in a break between the 2018 FIFA World Cup™ matches

City Tourist Program "St. Petersburg's Guest Map" has released new Lite, Lite + and Lite Sea maps specifically for football fans

Each of the cards of the Lite line shows unique routes created for tourists with different interests and requests. They include attractions, specially selected for acquaintance with St. Petersburg. Unlike the classic version of the "Guest Map", new maps cover a small number of attractions and offer a ready solution for meeting with the city.


The decisive argument for the football fans buying tours is the opportunity of not hurrying up, and to get acquainted with the main landmark places in St. Petersburg. For example, guests from Egypt chose Lite Sea maps to join the marine theme, and Peruvian fans (in the photo) preferred Lite + and went to get acquainted with the Petersburg classics.

It is noteworthy that the Lite Guest Maps operate throughout the tourist season, and if the cardholder has not been able to visit the places of interest during one visit, he/she will be able to finish the city tour in the next visit to St. Petersburg. This is especially useful for fans who will be able to get acquainted with the city on a convenient schedule. At the same time, by purchasing the Lite Guest Map, the tourist gets not only an opportunity to see the most interesting sights of St. Petersburg, but also to save significantly – there are discounts from 30% to 50%.

The Lite Map will allow visitors to take a look at St. Petersburg from three sides - from the air, from the land and from the water; to visit St. Isaac's Cathedral and its famous colonnade, to ride around the city on a hop-on-hop-off bus, and to go on a boat trip along the rivers and canals and finish the day, admiring the famous drawbridges.

With Lite+ Map, guests of St. Petersburg will touch the history of Imperial Russia: they will visit the Peter and Paul Fortress, admire the mosaic vaults of the Church of the Spilled Blood, and see the largest collection of Russian art in the Russian Museum.

The Lite Sea Map will suit the guests who are in love with the sea, and will remind you that St. Petersburg is not only a cultural capital, but also a city of sea glory. They will travel to Petergof on the “Meteor”, visit Kronstadt, the cruiser Aurora and the icebreaker Krasin, and also look at the city from the water while walking along the Neva.
