Wedding route ‘For Happiness’!

Route for true romantics and believers in omens

This route is designed for real romantics, for the couple in which the bride always hides a coin in her right shoe, and the groom puts on a tie instead of a butterfly on purpose. St. Petersburg always had a mystic fleur, whether in real life or in the works of Gogol, Dostoevsky, Turgenev. Many objects of the city are associated with mysterious beliefs and legends. It is up to you to believe in them or not, but still, for some reason people toss coins to the Chizyk-Pyzhik plinth, drive the circles around the Alexander Column and rubs the nose of bronze Ostap Bender. Let's make a car trip together in some city places and perform certain kinds of simple rituals, and you will secure a happy family future. The last site is located at the western end of Vasilievsky Island, near the seaport, so this route is ideal for those couples who have booked tickets for a cruise to the Baltic countries, and their joint adventure is just getting started.
