Horrors of Saint Petersburg
Mon-Sun, 11 a.m. - 9 p.m.
This amusement show only slightly resembles a traditional chamber of horrors. Thirteen rooms present 13 scenes from St. Petersburg’s history and mythology. The real-life stories and myths are so intertwined that it is impossible to understand what actually happened what did not. The spooky atmosphere is created with the help of intricate mechanisms, powerful special effects, wax figures and real actors. Nobody is there to grab visitors’ ankles or spook them from around the corner, but the performances illustrate the horrible fates suffered by various historical and mythological figures and that is enough to bring tears to some eyes.
