Peterhof

RE: summer palace

by Sanich

Hello
I'm russian citizen and I'm living in Saint-Petersburg. As I understand you want to visit Peterhof. I're going there by speedboat last summer. That time it costed 300 rubles (10 U.S. dollars). The cheapest way to go there is by bus (less than 1 dollar). And the way by bus is much more interesting because there is a lot of beautiful buildings on the way to the palace.
Also there is a Constantinovski Palace on the way to summer palace (it is a place where G8 summit were last year)
P.S. Hope you will have a nice time in Saint-Petersburg

Travel Tips for Saint Petersburg

Orthodox and european cathedrals

by filip007

The absence of "classical" orthodox churches (with the notable exception of the Church of the saviour on spilled blood, which due to this feels kind of artificial) in the center is maybe the most striking feature in a russian town.

Kazan cathedral was inspired by St Peter in Rome, St Peter and Paul cathedral designed by an italian architect, St Isaac by a french one. Add to this a lutheran church, an armenian church and St Catherine Church (latin catholic) along Nevski prospect (due to the embassies present during 200 years in the city) and you will feel as in Europe.

To really see the classic five onion domes, you need to go outside of the center, either the monastery of Alexander Nevski or just north of Fontanka... All the more striking is then the interior of the churches, either with mosaics and icons or the atmosphere in Kazan cathedral when the icon of Our Lady of Kazan is exposed and you can feel the religiousness surrounding you and the queue of people coming to express their devotion...

A unique and unforgettable experience...

Nevsky Prospekt

by bugulma

It is the longest street of the city and its central vein where many palaces, buildings and shops are situated. You cross some rivers of the city with nice bridges. A lot of tourists will be on your way along the street. Besides it is one of the widest streets in the central parts of the cities I've been to.

Money

by keeweechic

At the time of my visit most currencies could be changed to rubles in Russia. The most common foreign currency then was US dollars, but presumably with the Euro covering so many other countries, that along with pounds sterling, Swedish kronor or whatever currency you normally use is acceptable as long as it is not too uncommon.

Change money at any hotel's bank or at an official bank or exchange office, never on the street. Avoid changing large sums at one time, you may need less than you think.

To go through the 'Nothing to declare' lane in the customs at Pulkovo airport you must not bring more than $50 in cash, but it is no problem if you bring more. Just choose the other lane.

Value Added Tax : Russia has VAT that is currently 20% tax on the cost of all goods and services. This tax should be included in prices but make sure before you buy otherwise the price could end up being considerably more than you expect.

Open air museum of modern art

by filip007

More than half of the streets Ulitsa Pravdy and Bolshaia Moskovskaia were transformed into an open air museum filled with modern statues, unusual benches, patches of green grass and interesting lamps.

Just outside of the center, it is an interesting walk from Vladimirski prospekt down these two streets up to the Pionerskaia Ploshtshad.

The best violin instruction

by sennaya

If you travel with an emerging virtuoso violin player you might conisder arranging some serious violin study with one of the best instructors in Europe, Savely Shalman.

The recitals by his students are a sell-out at the Glinka Music Hall onNEvsky Prospect. Many medal winners among his students. He tours all over giving violin master classes.
If you are interested in a master class, e-mail you and I will give out contact information. :)

Bring violin, leave shoes at the door. :)
