Travel. Enjoy. Learn.

Hello! Planning a trip to St.Petersburg? Thinking of a private tour? Would like to plan your time efficiently and get expert comments in history and art? I’m happy to help you.
My name is Irina Polevaya. I’m a professional licensed tour guided working in St.Petersburg since 2001. I’ve got a degree in history and art history from St. Petersburg State University, over 10 years of guiding experience and a friendly personality, which is essential for a tour guide. I do tours in all main museums and art galleries of St. Petersbug, like the Hermitage, Catherine Palace, Peterhof and many others, and various city tours – from general sightseeing of the main attractions to special interest tours, made just for certain travellers. All the tours are completely private and in any case you’re guaranteed a personal approach, friendly atmosphere and a deep introduction into the Russian history and art. If you’re on the cruise have a look at the section of visa-free shore excursions. There you’ll find useful information and ready-made packages for 1,2 and 3 days, visa free arrangements included. Any of them can be customized for your interests and pace. I work in collaboration with my colleagues, who are my friends and the best guides I know in this city. All are well-educated and enthusiastic. When thinking of the name I decided that ARTeFACTUM would suit perfectly, as this name has words ART and FACTS. St.Petersburg can boast both art and history and we are very interested in bringing it to you. To explore the city now you don’t necessarily have to join big groups. Even when on the cruise there are many opportunities to get a private tour tailor-made to match your interests, wishes and budget. It’s much more personal and welcoming! I’ll be glad to make your personal itinerary, arrange everything you need for a pleasant trip including transportation, theatre or folk show tickets, reservation in restaurants and become your personal guide. I accommodate as many tours as I can. On the days I’m not available you can be taken around by one of my colleagues. It would be a pleasure to meet you one day!
