St. Petersburg, Nightlife

St Petersburg Nightlife Tour

The city of St. Petersburg is one of Russia’s main entertainment centers. This ‘City of Artists’ is the spiritual home of both Russia’s live music and dance music scene.

When the lights of downtown St. Petersburg begin to shimmer on the Gulf waters, St Petersburg nightlife comes alive. The music scene is diverse and colourful: the majority of well-known Russian rock bands have originated from here. Refurbished cinemas equipped with high fidelity sound systems show the latest Western films. The city also has a great diversity of high-quality restaurants, bars and night clubs. The prices are affordable and great value in comparison to any other large European city, including Moscow.

We invite you to explore St. Petersburg’s bars, night clubs and more. A young guide, familiar with the night scene in the city, will accompany you and your car / van will be available to take you from one place to another. The tour lasts for 3-4 hours (or longer if you wish) and at the end of the evening you’ll be taken back to your hotel for a well-deserved sleep.
