This is a unique travel guide through St. Petersburg sights, where people make wishes. It has collected the legends that you won’t hear during typical city tours. St. Petersburg residents believe in magic of those places and come there in important moments of their lives.
Take a walk though St. Petersburg – or Piter, as it’s called by its residents – and discover the mysteries of its famous dwellers, monuments, and buildings. Learn how to make wishes in mysterious places, why they are considered mysterious, and how to get there; hear the stories about how the monuments were erected and who created them.
Our guide offers information about the very first buildings of Russia’s northern capital, as well as the monuments mounted in 2013. Both tourists and local residents will be able to learn the history and feel the mystic spirit of the places they pass by every day. For example, I was surprised to learn about Transfiguration Cathedral and the hippo statue by the University building. Every day, I was just 500 meters from those places. Offline map offers information about all underground stations to help you start and finish your journey (if you travel on foot).
With geographical coordinates in different formats and the opportunity of designing your own itineraries, you will be able to upload the information into GPS-navigator and come up with the optimal itinerary for travelling by car.
The travel guide has the map of the city’s centre with its famous sights, as well as the bedroom communities. Despite being offline, you won’t get lost in the big city and will feel comfortable. The option of adding new places and pictures onto the map won’t let you get lost. You will always know where your hotel or tourist bus is situated.
Every day the city’s residents and tourists learn a new aspect of St. Petersburg.

All you have to do is to send your friends your itinerary.
By adding coordinates of places you want to visit, you will save money on excursions. Visiting all places of interest offered by the application “Petersburg Magic Travel Guide With Offline Map” will take you more than one day. All photos used by the application were made in 2014, so that you could see them as they look right now.
