St. Petersburg Non-tourist Photo Guide

Here you can download for free the latest version of St. Petersburg non-tourist photo guide.

St. Petersburg, the former capital of the Russian Empire, is no doubt one of the most picturesque and beautiful cities in the world. 

The photo guide you are reading was designed to help all visitors of St. Petersburg to keep memories from their trip to this wonderful city. The idea of this book is to provide tourist with advice about most unusual locations of St. Petersburg — places and angles where you can make fantastically looking non-touristic photos of this city.


To my mind there is no sense just to copy the reality by taking another postcard that is just a copy of you can find in the internet. 

This book will help you to reveal the real St. Petersburg — the city with its own character and a difficult fate. I hope that this guide will inspire you on capturing your own photos allowing to understand the soul of St. Pete and share this experience with your family and friends.
