"More than just a Taxi service! This is by far the best taxi service in St. Petersburg. We were met at the airport on time by Nikolay who helped us with our luggage not only to the car but also into our apartment on the first floor. We used Nikolay most days for our 2 week trip, he was punctual and very accommodating when we changed our pick up times. Nikolay then went above and beyond by suggesting to best places to eat and visit, he even booked for us! We loved chatting whilst in the car, hearing all his stories was really interesting. I can honestly say that if you want a great service at a very reasonable price then this is who you should use."Susan (UK) Read more reviews here...

The far-sighted Peter the Great did not accidentally decide to "cut a window to Europe" exactly where the Neva flows into the Gulf of Finland: these lands have long belonged to Russia, though at beginning of the XVII century the territory was conquered by Sweden. Having returned the Neva lands, on May 16 (May 27 – old style), 1703, Peter the Great laid the fortress of St. Petersburg on Hare Island. It gave the name of the future capital of Russia - Saint Petersburg. The most talented architects and engineers from different countries were involved in the construction. That is why the city's appearance has both Russian and Western artistic features. The construction of St. Petersburg went very fast, despite the difficult local geological and weather conditions.
St. Petersburg is the first Russian city that was originally conceived as a large-scale project, built according to the plan and built according to European models. Therefore, its appearance is so majestic, solemn and even somewhat pompous. During its period of development, the Northern capital was a participant in many events, but the historical center was preserved in its original form.
Currently, it is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List according to several criteria: a masterpiece of human creative genius, an outstanding example of an architectural ensemble and landscape, an exceptional world importance of the object, every visitor to St. Petersburg can see this. In 1914, St. Petersburg's name was changed to Petrograd in protest to the policy of Germany. And despite the fact that the city became the cradle of three revolutions, it lost its capital status in 1918. Another name change came after Lenin's death in 1924.
During the Great Patriotic War Soviet Leningrad acquired a new glory: the Hero City, where the inhabitants withstood a 900-day nazi blockade. And, despite the colossal losses (600 thousand people died of starvation-almost half of the entire population), the city remained alive thanks to the heroism and courage of Leningrad residents.
In 1991, after the collapse of the USSR, the historical name, St. Petersburg, was returned to the city. These different names for each particularly important change in Russian history is a fact that confirms the importance of the city on the River Neva. And even though it is not an official capital now, it is even more decorated with the status of the Northern Capital of the Russian Federation.
Taxi in St. Petersburg is considered to be quite an old form of urban transport, which replaced the cabs. The first taxis appeared in the Russian Capital in 1906. The old taxi in St. Petersburg used to be limited in speed, since the patriarchal way of life the figure of 13 km per hour seemed prohibitive. Such services were quite popular, and the evidence for this was the presence of various classes of service: cars for people with high incomes or low-income customers.
This business flourished until 1917, and then the revolutionaries recognized taxis in Russia as an attribute of bourgeois life. And these vehicles disappeared from city streets. Taxi appeared again in Leningrad (the new name of the city after Petrograd) in 1925 when they came to the conclusion that bourgeois transport can successfully serve the working class.
Foreign-made cars as "Ford" were used at the first Soviet taxi company. Drivers wore uniforms that were painfully similar to the French ones: tight trousers, long jackets, and leg warmers. And the headdress was very much like "budenovka". Taxi fares in the City on the Neva were fixed, there was no competition because all cars were state-owned.
In 1948, there were taxis with the legendary orange checkers. A year later, a taxi in Leningrad became "green-eyed", because they introduced green lights that indicated that the car was free. Leningrad's taxi became a kind of a popular brand on its own: songs were sung about it, the transport was filmed in movies. The state monopoly on the taxi market ended after the collapse of the Soviet Union and the returning of the original name to the city: Saint Petersburg.
