The culmination of the cruise is the North Pole – the top of the world. Every guest is sure to hear his country’s national anthem at this legendary spot. The tourist holding hands reel around the North Pole making a symbolic journey around the world. Following is the northernmost barbeque, the northernmost dance and bathing in the northernmost ice-hole for the brave!

At the State Hermitage, he will be met by a guide, taken into the museum without standing in line and given a thorough tour around the exposition.

One of this season’s innovations is that now tourists have more flexibility. The card is now good for two to seven days and the price complies. Among other things, a kids’ card for our young travelers is to be introduced soon. It will provide the same privileges for kids from 7 to 17 years of age as it does for the adults, but at a 40-50% discount.

Another new convenient feature of the Guest Card is its integration with electronic public transport tickets. The new version of the card will include several metro, bus or tram rides. The system is being constantly upgraded an soon the tourists will be able to top-up their transport limit at special terminals and cash registers on the underground stations.
