Saint Petersburg Stadium
Saint Petersburg Stadium can seat 61,000 people. Zenit moved there from Petrovsky Stadium in April 2017, beating Ural Sverdlovsk Oblast 2-0 in their first game. The arena hosted four matches at the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup, including the final, and will stage seven fixtures at the 2018 FIFA World Cup. It was constructed on the site of the Kirov Stadium, home to Zenit until the early 1990s, on Krestovsky Island. The venue was designed by Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa, whose vision was for a spaceship that had landed on the shores of the Gulf of Finland. The nearest metro station is Krestovsky Ostrov on the purple line, which runs through central Saint Petersburg.
What to see
For culture: Founded in 1764 by Catherine the Great, the State Hermitage Museum houses over three million works of art and cultural artefacts, only a fraction of which are on display in 360 rooms. One of the largest museums in the world, the Hermitage is made up of five buildings, the most famous of which is the magnificent Winter Palace. For atmosphere: Thousands of tourists and locals gather on the banks of the river Neva every night from April to November to see the 'raising of the bridges'. The city has over 300 bridges, with 13 of them bascules (ones that can open and close to let river traffic through). Watching them go up – some in sequence, some alone, most lit up – is a great opportunity to explore the waterfront. For fresh air: Just off Palace Embankment, a short distance from Palace Square and the Hermitage, the Summer Garden is Saint Petersburg's oldest park.

Me and my family just returned from an Easter break to Moscow. I found the tour very good value for money and the company's assistance with the visa application was also helpful. Reservations, payment, visa letter, and pre-departure correspondence prior to trip (via email) was prompt and well explained with no problems. Final arrangements information were detailed. We knew exactly what to expect, who will be waiting for us, time and venue to meet even with any guides with us. Transport transfers and driver were punctual.
Everything worked like clockwork, when someone was suppose to be there they were. Yuri and Cathrine were excellent guides in Moscow and St. Petersburg and we learned a lot from both. We chose the 4 star hotels, and were very satisfied. Would highly recommend this trip to anyone interested.
I decided to use the Tour Service of the World Cup after some extensive research into the tour alternatives. These guys seemed to differentiate its tour Service by providing a more culturally based service with a healthy dose of Football and Fun. My experience was that it as well run ie they delivered on their promises. They have a health mix of local staff and Australian staff. The Russian staff had a great empathy for the challenges for us Aussies traveling in a country where you had no language skills they bridged that gap with there wonderful help. I know there are many alternative tours but this one certainly lived up to its name. I felt I discovered part of Russia but there’s plenty more to go!’ Overall just a great experience
We have finished our trip in Mongolia and I busted to say thank you very much for all your assistance while we were on the ground in Russia. By far the best guide we had was Yuri in Moscow - he was excellent. We had a very good visit to Novgorod where Natalia was an excellent guide too, and we learnt much about Russian history: It was very good to have the car to take us around the Golden Circle and Victor was a good driver. and the guide in Peterhof and Faberge museum was very nice, approachable, taxis were always waiting for us when we got off the boat etc. We both had a very good holiday and learnt a lot about Russian history and culture: thanks again.
Highly recommend!! Well organised, friendly and knowledgeable staff who go out of their way to make sure you have the best experience! If you ever intend on visiting Russia, definately try this company!

Thanks you Abby and Varvara and all the other staff members of World of Discoveries for making our stay in Russia over 2 and a half weeks easy, comfortable and memorable. Thanks for the great organisation with transfers and accommodation. Thanks also for organising a phone sim card for each one in our group. It made our life much easier to stay in touch with each other and with our family and friends back home. We loved our stay in Russia and will certainly come back soon.
