St. Petersburg, Northwestern District
One of the most spacious and atmospheric apartments in the centre of St Petersburg.

Our 230-square-metre apartment is situated directly opposite the garden of the Academy of Arts, 150 metres from the bank of the main river. It retains its sense of what it was before the Revolution - a rather grand private apartment with a beautiful enfilade of front rooms facing the Academy Garden.

There are 4 bedrooms (3 with their own ensuite bathroom), 2 living rooms, and a large dining room /kitchen. We have restored the original layout, so the spaces now flow together in much the same way as they did before the Revolution. The furniture is a mix of antiques and modern pieces. All in all, this is a tranquil space ideally suited to large families or small groups of travellers.

We aim to provide our guests with all the support they may need, and are...

About the neighbourhood
This part of Vasilievsky Island has a privileged view over the very centre of St Petersburg. Turn right out of our front door, walk 150 metres, and you find yourself on the bank of the main river, with all of the centre of St Petersburg spread before you. Opposite and a little to the left are St Isaac's and the statue of the Bronze Horseman. Beside you are the twin sphinxes crouching solemnly on the embankment in front of the Academy of Arts. The Hermitage, St Isaac's, and the Mariinsky Theatre are all 15-20 minutes' walk away; the Menshikov Palace is only 5. The nearest metro station is 6-7 minutes.

Finally, this is an ideal spot from which to watch the raising of the bridges on summer nights.
Car not needed
