photographic tours and workshops around and about the former ussr 

Besides being the founder of Soviet Tours, Gianluca Pardelli has been working as professional photojournalist since 2010: his reportages from the former Soviet Union have been featured in major international magazines and newspapers and he now regularly offers tailored photography tours and workshops for professionals and amateurs in Siberia, Central Asia and the Caucasus. We also collaborate with a vast network of professional local photographers and videographers eager to guide you around the most photogenic spots of the Evil Empire

Among our top photo destinations we’d like to mention: North Ossetia (mountains, hamlets and necropolis), Altai (plateaus, steppes and horsemen) and Southern Kazakhstan (surreal landscapes, Soviet architectures and bustling bazaars).

Travelling either with Gianluca or with one of our local world-class photographers, you'll get the once-in-a-lifetime chance to explore and document the former USSR from a truly unique perspective. Tell us whether you are more interested in landscape, architecture, street or portrait photography, give us an idea of the region you'd like to capture with your lenses and we'll suggest you a couple of exciting itineraries that will surely satisfy your photographic desires.
