Photo s in Metro

by alectrevor

I"ve been told that it is ok to take photos in St Petersburg Metro but not too use flash, this is supposed to be para 8 in the terms of use. Does anyone know if this is so.

Re: Photo s in Metro

by leics

Apparently (according to Wiki) even ordinary photography without a permit has only been acceptable since 2009.

But not with flash.

in the mid of 2000s it was prohibitted to make any photo in the metro in StP (I saw such point in the rules, and I heard some stories when policemen asked to delete photos). maybe things are changed for now...

From 24.08.2009 you can officially make photos in St. Pete metro, but without a flash (Decree# 139-p of the Transport Commetee of St.Pete) ..

But avoid making photos of tunnels and other engineering objects - it could be suspicious for the station staff - it is still the object of the civil defense, and a staff still the product of soviet system... :)

As for a flash - the metro is well-lighted and you just need no a flash in most of cases..


PS. In Moscow it is also not banned...

Yes, one can make photographs without flash - see number 8
http://www.metro.spb.ru/9.html (in Russian)
And you have to get the permission from the metro administation to make video and photos with flash (number 9.17).

I've taken no end of photos in St Petersburg metro stations and no-one's ever stopped me. I have a good little camera, but can't recall whether or not the flash was used. Some are very interesting and beautiful - Pushkinskaya, for example.

Travel Tips for Saint Petersburg

Metro sightseeing

by HORSCHECK

St. Petersburg's metro is the deepest in the world. So the first thing you will notice are the long, steep and fast escalators packed with people. Construction started in 1940, but the first line was inaugurated in 1955.

Many stations are beautifully decorated. Unfortunately, taking photographs is prohibited. Nevertheless, I took a few photos in the less busy stations.

The stations of line 1 (red line) are especially worth seeing. I recommend having a closer look at Ploshad Vosstaniya, Ploshad Aleksandra Nevskogo, Pushkinskaya, Avtovo, Kirovskiy Zavod and Narvskaya.

For more info about the metro, please have a look at my "Transportation Tips".

see the Kasinsky cathedral

by yellowstar

I haven't been inside, but from the outside it looks very impressive.
Just imagine: until 1989 there was a museum of atheism in this cathedral!!! Our guide told us that she had to study atheism in university as well. She told us later that this subject brought her to a strong belief in god - not what the politicians intended, I guess.

Exploring the Winter...

by maritagnes

Exploring the Winter palace/Hermitage is a must when visiting St.Petersburg.
But take the trip to Pushkin (Tsarskoe Selo) as well to see the Catherine palace and the Alexander palace. Wonderful surroundings including the most beautiful English-style park with a lake. Idyllic!
Another two and a half miles from Pushkin is Pavlovsk.
Here you'll find an immense park, which is a masterpiece of sculpture and scenery.

Packing List

by Raffmo

The temperature was about 20-25 C. Photo films are cheaper than in Poland. It is good to make also photos there (good quality and cheap). I heard that there are a lot of mosquitos there so take somthing to kill them (although when I was there I noticed maybe only 2 or 3 mosquitos :-)).

An escape place within the city

by mumymama

I like walking along paths of Krestovsky Ostrov (Island) - a quiet place located some 10 min. by car from the city center, or, by Metro. Station - Krestovsky Ostrov. Start exploring it from the southern part, then move to the other islands connected with Krestovsky - see the link below -
