Visit the Petrograd Side, a fascinating, completely tourist-free area north of Peter-and-Paul Fortress. Introduce yourself to local drinking habits in a ryumochnaya, a classic Soviet working class vodka bar. Navigate the maze of old residential lanes and backyards tucked behind the Style Moderne facades of fancy shopping streets. Former residents of the area include Lenin, Gorky, Kirov, Shostakovich – see their buildings and monuments, as well as Cruiser Aurora, the Grand Mosque and other hidden wonders.
