The trains are so overcrowded on the last station that on the next stations people cannot sit in the coach. 8-coach trains are going along the red line, 6-coach on the others. The level of the subway congestion is the 12th in the world. Number 1 is Tokyo, Number 2 is Moscow. The 2-nd Russian metro built 20 years after Moscow subway in 1955.

"Narvskaya" metro station

"Pushkinskaya" had to be opened in1955, but  was opened later, before inauguration he escalator collapsed. At «Avtovo» just 16 columns of 46 are faced with glass. The décor was not finished by contractor. So the columns were temporarily faced with stone. They did not fulfill the project. The bad relationship of Khrushchev to  the «architectural excesses» was the reason . The subway tour will inform you that there is 1 station «Dachnoie» closed forever. «Avtovo» became the 1-st station without escalators.

 The Grand model of Russia

Your St. Petersburg private guide will show the Grand model of Russia. You get around Russia with the child during one weekend. There is the huge mockup of Russia where in detail you see the attractions in miniature and life in all parts: oil rigs, HPPs and mining in Siberia, Baikal lake, tundra, even the pig farm, trains and cars moving in all directions across the country. Like real! There is even mini "Sapsan" train. The layout is huge, solid (exception is the Kaliningrad region, which understandably is placed separately). The Ural and Caucasus ridges rest on the ceiling, in imagination they can continue above the ceiling. Coming from St .Petersburg look at the room's end but Vladivostok is not visible.

Your St. Petersburg private guide will show the layout of Russia for children. What you can touch and what to watch? To view it better place a child on a special skirting around the layout. It is particularly interesting to consider the details. Here you can even see the microscopic gulls on the handrails and eaves of buildings, scenes with people: here's someone pushes a broken car, the police arrested criminals and peaceful gatherings on the bench in the courtyard. And even in this small replica of the country various events are happening. For example, every five minutes near the Ural mountain range begins forest fire: it is a real smoke, appears fire, fire engines come, extinguish the fire.

Or freight wagonsare connected to locomotive, it drives and on it's place comes another train. Looking at one piece of the layout with St. Petersburg guide one can see a lot of things (impossible to touch). On the layout there are special buttons for visitors: pressed - powered separate part of the layout. It is easy to work with excavator in open pits or to make fall a tree on a tree felling. There are 15 buttons and 50 buttons wil be to be installed. You can look inside (bottom) through the special peephole and see how we engage in multi-level junctions cars and trains.

With St. Petersburg private guide you see how every 15 minutes from the East to the West night comes and gradually from Vladivostok to Kaliningrad light is lit in the windows. So it is dark in the hall and there is feeling of real night and everybody stop moving. You can rent an audio guide and binoculars (to consider distant parts), the number of trains on the railway will increase from the current 30 to 350. Downstairs here is the cloak room, cafe (budget dishes). They promise to open an educational centre with technical circles and ship modeling club for kids.


«Decembrists» revolt

Decembrists square with the "Bronze Horseman"- monument to Peter the Great.
Licensed St. Petersburg private guide will mention during the sightseeing tour the «Decembrists» revolt. Nikolas, the third son of Paul 1 was born in 1796. His governor was General Matvei Lambsdorf who taught him military engineering. Nikolas succeeded Alexander 1 because the second brother Konstantin had given up his right to the throne. The morganatic marriage (his spouse-polish woman) was the reason. This was kept private within the imperial family. Alexander died and the army at first swore allegiance to Konstantine. The troops had to swear a new allegiance to Nikolas. That was exploited by radically-minded Petersburg officers. They lead the guards units on the square in December 1825. They dreamed to put an end of autocracy. For the rest of his life emperor Nicholas remained a stern autocrat, requiring only one thing from the subjects – obedience. Military – like order prevailed in all state institutions. The principal organ of administration became his Majesty's Chancellery with special significance being allotted to its «Third Department»,  the secret police established in 1826.
