Gourmet tour «Saint-Petersburg cuisine»

Book the tour

Private gourmet tour 4 days / 3 nights

One of the best types of travel is a gastronomic tour. Until you try traditional cuisine, you will not be able to fully understand the culture of the country or city of your stay. We have selected dishes that characterize the "taste" of the Northern capital: smelt, ring doughnuts, beef Stroganoff, Leningrad rassolnik (pickle soup), Pushkin shchi (cabbage soup), blancmange. This is just the briefest list, since every guest will find something of their own, a dish that will certainly remind of St. Petersburg.
