Retro Leningrad Walk

Discover Saint Petersburg in a retrospective way!

Leningrad, the former cradle of revolution and the USSR industrial capital, has left its mark everywhere in modern Saint Petersburg, its architecture, landscape design, and lifestyle.

The USSR culture was built in a very short period of time but its diversity remains astonishing. Three generations of Russians were brought up with communist ideas, religious criticism, and a big idea — to build an equal society.

Walking along the streets you will see traces of the past, retro cars and old markets. The Retro Leningrad Walk includes all the main city sights and visits to iconic retro places like Pushkinskaya 10 Art Center, Eliseevy Merchants’ Shop and the «USSR» cafe.
