New Years 2006/2007

by harrietholiday

Hi, scouting the globe for some intersting New Years places. What is "St.Petersburg" like for New Year's? Also any hotel recommendations would be great. Something cool but not tooo expensive.
Looking to dance, maybe some good and fun dinner suggestions before.
Thank you,
This is something that may not happen to me again so I welcome any good information!

That part of the world? Try Tallinn -- always a party there, or Riga. I'm planning on Edinburgh myself.

Travel Tips for Saint Petersburg

Peter + Paul Fortress

by furioso

Tiny Zayachy Island contains the oldest building in town - the Peter & Paul Fortress. It was built in 1703 while Peter the Great was still roughing it in a log cabin overlooking his golden embryonic city (the cabin is preserved as a shrine-like museum), and designed according to plans by the man himself. Its original purpose was to defend the land newly acquired from the Swedes. However, its main use up to 1917 was as a political prison and the first inmate was Peter's own son Alexey (Peter supervised his son's torture), who was followed by other notables such as Dostoevsky, Gorky, Trotsky and Lenin's older brother, Alexander.

The cathedral, though plain on the outside, has a magnificent baroque interior. Most of Russia's Romanov rulers are buried here. Between the cathedral and the Senior Officer's Barracks is a strangely proportioned statue of Peter the Great - rubbing his right forefinger apparently brings good luck.

Mikhailovsky Theatre

by bugulma

On Ploshad Iskusstv (Fine Arts Square) there is Mikhailovsky Thatre (till 2007, the academic theatre of opera and ballet of Modest Musorgsky). In June 2007 there were musical events in the open-air scene and I visited one of them. Nice experience it was. The theatre is situated in building #1. In 2009 we visited Traviata here but weren't satisfied with the performance cause of very slow orchestra working...

Park Maintenance

by sophiebeans

He is a picture of some men laying sod in the Summer Gardens. Nice blue bibs, fellas! One thing I noticed when I was in St. Petersburg is that in these big, open parks with lots of grassy areas, the workers do not use lawn mowers. They use little hand-held weed-wackers! A job of trimming the grass that would take maybe an hour with a lawnmower must take an entire day with a weed-wacker and cost three times as much to do! And besides that, the grass wouln't even get trimmed evenly! I just don't get it.

Capoeira in Petersburg??

by travelingdanna

Of course! Capoeira, an Afro-Brazilian martial art, is all over the world, so why not in Petersburg? When I was there for the summer I managed to find a group to practice with. At the time they were at a gym near Viborgskaya metro, but it changes a lot. In the summer, they would meet around 15:00 on Sundays near the helicopter field on the island where the Peter-Paul fortress is located. They're great people, working really hard to improve and find an official group to join. It's lots of fun, but you'll need to know some Russian to get in touch w/them.
