There are a lot of Automated Teller Machines in the metro stations and in the streets. The larger shops and better class of restaurants accept the major credit cards.
There are lots of restaurants and cafes in the city and they are mostly open daily from 11:00 to 24:00. An English menu is available in most restaurants. Tips are usually not included.
Front desk clerks at hotels, personnel of airline ticket offices, travel agencies and some big restaurants usually speak English.
Conference participants are expected to make their own insurance arrangements. The organisers can in no way be held responsible for medical expenses, accidents, losses or other unexpected occurrences.
In June, the daytime temperature in St. Petersburg is usually around +15 +25 degrees above zero. For this season the weather is unpredictable - rains are usual but the heat is possible, too.
St. Petersburg straddles the mouth of the Riva Neva at the easternmost spur of the Baltic. Peter the Great town planning bestowed a grid-like legacy of wide boulevards dissected by canals. The earliest settlement is marked by the gold spire of the Peter & Paul Fortress on a delta of islands in the Neva.
The main commercial zone is clustered around the artery of Nevsky Prospect on the south bank of the Neva, with the tourist centre of the Winter Palace & Admiralty a little to the north. Three canals divide Nevsky Prospect & many of the tourist attractions are situated along these beautiful canals. They are (from the Hermitage end): the Moika, the Griboedova & the Fontanka canals.
Peter & Paul Fortress: This fortress on the bank of the Neva was one of the first structures in the city & marks the spot where Peter the Great conceived of St. Petersburg as a window on the West. Built between 1703 & 1733 to protect the new settlement from attacks by the Swedes, it is dominated by the soaring spire of Petropavlovsky Cathedral (122m tall). The Cathedral is the burial place of Peter & all his successors.
^ This ranks alongside the Louvre in Paris & the Prado in Madrid as one of the world’s greatest museums. Just glancing at each of the 3 million exhibits would take nearly a decade. The vast collection includes Russian art, works by Da Vinci, Raphael, El Greco & French Impressionists. Admission $10.
^ This massive structure is one of the most prominent features of the St. Petersburg skyline & sports the third largest cathedral dome in Europe (after St Peter’s in Rome and St Paul’s in London). The Mariinsky Palace on St Isaac’s Sq., now the home of St Petersburg Legislative assembly, & the legendary Bronse Horseman on the Neva are other points of interest. Admission $8, plus $3.20 for the colonnade.
^ This elegant garden is laid out in rambling English style, surrounded by water & adorned with 80 baroque statues. In the northern corner is the Dutch-style Summer Palace of Peter the Great, the third oldest building in the city.
The Russian Museum: Though not as vast as the Hermitage, the Russian Museum provides the visitor with more than enough art to digest. As well as the Icons, painted by medieval monks, the art lover can sample the Russian avant-garde of the early XXth century. Admission $6.50.
^ This church is a striking edifice, given its architectural departure from the very European Petersburg norm. With its onion cupolas, the Church stands alone as the city’s one example of real Russian architecture. This almost exactly opposite Kazansky Cathedral, very much of the Petersburg style.
If you want to feel the lifeblood of St. Petersburg you should take the long walk down ^ . Start from the bustle of Ploshchad Vosstania & head straight towards the Admiralty, whose golden steeple will gradually begin to dominate the view. You’ll cross over the three canals, Fontanka, then Griboedova, then Moika, & should stop a moment at each to savour the unique St Petersburg views they command.
A quieter alternative is to turn south off Nevsky Prospect onto Naberezhnaya Moiki & turn left into Palace Square where the Winter Palace stands, then head towards the River Neva behind the palace. Any direction you now walk along the embankment will provide glorious sights.
