What awaits you

Box with secrets Olgino is a historical district of St. Petersburg, adjacent to Lakhta. Walking along the cozy streets of the former possessions of the Counts of Stenbock-Fermor, you will see their "White Castle" and learn about the "jammers", as well as admire the local architecture. I will show you Mushroom House, Terem House, Chinese House and tell you about the owners of quaint dachas in the neo-Russian style. You will see the best examples of northern wooden Art Nouveau, as well as find out where the Buddhist chapel was located and how a student of Dalai Lama XIII ended up here

Hearing stories about the inhabitants and guests of Lakhta - architects and engineers, composers and writers - you will imperceptibly approach the Gulf of Finland. We will stand by the big water and talk about the history, flora and fauna of the Karelian Isthmus.
