To visit the most cinematographic cities of the Leningrad Region.. Follow Alexei Balabanov and his film masterpieces.... To climb into the thick of the reserve in Sablino for beautiful waterfalls and your favorite TV series.. .

From St. Petersburg in the footsteps of your favorite movies.

The nature and architecture of the Leningrad Region is amazing with its diversity. It's no wonder that Russian filmmakers choose these edges for filming time and again. I suggest going in search of places where popular Soviet and Russian films were shot. And at the same time to visit places where you won't go on purpose. I guarantee it will be interesting!
