  • Found this by chance, but understood I had to do it. As the tour was in English, it was just for us (the russian tours are always ~10 people +). Through our guides, we learnt about what Raketa was...  more »

  • Great tour offered free by Raketa, they have good English speaking guides who are superbly kind and friendly. Not anywhere pressured to buy any watch but my intention is to visit one of the four watch factory which manufactured all their parts in house and what's more memorable than getting a watch to remember my trip there? Email them in advanced to schedule your visiting time and they'll provide a map. Highly recommended!
  • We had a great tour in April 2017 here. Really enjoyed the good and clear explanation of the factory and the brand. The factory itself was a bit hard to find, but the people outside knew what we were talking about when we showed them our watch and said “factory”. At first they sent us to the office and then to a car garage, but in the end we arrived at the watch factory. Inside we were warmly welcomed by a lady and we got a tour (even though we didn’t make a reservation, so that was very nice of them).
  • We enjoyed this very unique tour. Tour guide was very nice and explained the history of the company and how watches were made. We walked around the factory floor. Got there ~4pm so didn't get a chance to see the workers putting the watches together. They recommend to go before 2pm. Teenagers in our group were amazed with the machinery to custom make each part. Some machines were dated back at Soviet era while others are more modern. Highly recommended.
  • Really interesting tour, i honnestly loved it, but, i felt like they constantly tried to sell me something, and a sort of pressure to buy a watch, understandable, since the tour is offered for free, but unpleasant. All in all, great experience and defenetly a must-go for watch lovers. And yes, they give you a bag with Roketa's logo on it if you write a review which i kindly rejected.
  • I was impressed by amazing hidden story from Russia. A full in-house made timepieces. Most exciting museum of watch history in Russia from Imperial Peterhof Factory.
