Arsene Konnov is passionate about everything offbeat about Saint Petersburg.

His knowledge about the city spans from its magnificent architecture and glorious history to today’s coolest places and venues praised by locals.

A natural born storyteller, he likes to weave stories, observations of both meaningful details and the “big picture”, art history, poetry and fiction into a graphic and fascinating narrative about one of the world’s greatest cities – one guided tour at a time. 

Watch Arsene in Action

His favorite destinations? How about the dark and mystical corners of the former Imperial capital described by famous Russian writers? Or magnificent Russian Art Nouveau architecture of Petrogradskaya side? Or Narvsky district, rich in its revolutionary history and full of gems of Soviet futurist and neo-imperial architecture from 1920s to 1950s? Or the world’s largest naval fortress of Kronstadt? Or maybe impressive ruins of the former world-famous rubber factory? But wait, there’s more – Saint Petersburg’s creative spaces inhabiting former naval warehouses, early XIX century breweries, old nobility mansions in the very city centre, or a former Siemens cable factory, and even an exploration of the city’s waterfront on a sailboat!
