- Avtovo (line 1)

Go On Rooftop Tours
Is there really such a thing as a rooftop tour? Definitely, this list isn’t called unusual for nothing. This kind of tour is growing in popularity still but if you try it you’ll see St Petersburg Russia from a different angle (literally). The tours will most likely include interesting talks about the history of the places you visit.
Visit The Ziferblat Anti-Cafe
Have you ever been to an anti-café before? Ziferblat in St Petersburg is the original anti-café that has started a worldwide trend. It’s best described as a free space where you can get coffee, tea and biscuits while playing computer games, reading or watching movies. The crowd is artsy and eclectic so you’ll feel right at home if you have the same characteristics, Anastasia Date finds. It’s hard to liken the Ziferblat to anything, so you’d have to experience it to understand it yourself.
