WHAT YOU VISIT
Ghosts of Historic Sitka Walking Tour
Embark on paranormal investigations while listening to chilling tales of Sitka's unique past. An enchanting story teller dressed in opulent 1867 period costume will guide and entertain you on your tour of Sitka's passageways and back alleys. On your stroll that winds past buildings constructed by early Russians, you'll hear chilling stories of the mythical Kooshdaa Kaa or Land Otter People who lured innocent beached sailors to their deaths and tragic tales of children who sadly died so young in the harsh new land of the 1800s, but are claimed to still be seen playing today. You'll also wander through ferns and spruce trees to the Russian Cemetery for a fun and unique paranormal investigation. The eerie tour includes outside visits to St. Michael's Cathedral and Rose Hill House.
Have your camera handy, you never know if you'll capture a ghost on film. Russia's illustrious past can be seen at St. Michael's Cathedral, originally built in 1848, it's acclaimed as the earliest Orthodox cathedral in the New World and a National Historic Landmark; and the Russian Cemetery, which holds 1,000 graves, many marked with headstones made from the ballasts of Russian ships.
