The Russian Revolution & Communist Legacy Tour not only explores in detail the history of 20th century Russia but also explains the reasons for the collapse of the Russian Empire. The tour will start with an insight on who Russian tsars were and what caused the downfall of their rule. We’ll visit the State Museum of Political History of Russia where every stage of Russia’s political past is carefully preserved and displayed. Our next stop will be the Tauride Palace which in time transformed from an aristocratic residence into the first Bolshevik government.
The tour includes a drive past cruiser Aurora — a relic of Russian revolutionary history. It took part in the Storming of the Winter Palace and remains a true symbol of the October Revolution. You will also have a chance to see the Finland train station where Lenin arrived after returning from his exile in Europe. Last stop — the Smolny Institute. Not only does it tell the history of the revolution, but also remains a working government. You’re allowed to attend several halls and studies with a private guide and a guard. The main focus of the tour will be Lenin — his early life, education, fascination with Karl Marx — the life of a leader who greatly impacted world history.
