The snowy months (roughly January to March) are one of the best times to visit St Petersburg: very few tourists, no queues at the Hermitage, plenty going on at the Mariinsky and other theatres, and wonderfully light evenings (as early as the end of Feb)Now the Museum of the Arctic and Antarctic, before the Revolution the church was the principal cathedral of the United Believers

Toto je jeden z mála domovů v této oblasti, který má toto vybavení.


This is a large, light room in our apartment /guesthouse The Old Church Courtyard. The room has five arched windows overlooking the old church in our main courtyard. There is a double bed, a single bed for a third person (if needed), and an ensuite bathroom. (Prices given are for two people; the extra bed costs an additional 15 euros per night.)

Our small, atmospheric guesthouse (4 bedrooms in all) is located in the centre of St Petersburg, in the Dostoevskian thick of things. This is a lively neighbourhood. Nevsky prospekt with its 24-hour action is 5 minutes' walk away; 3 metro stations are 3-5 minutes from us; the Dostoevsky Museum is just around the corner; and there's a whole street of some of the most varied bars, cafes, and restaurants in the city just the other side of Vladimir Cathedral. Yet, when you enter our courtyard, the pace changes: all the bustle of the street falls away - leaving classical columns (the Museum of the Arctic and Antarctic - actually, an old church), space in which to think, and the wonderful Petersburg light.

Our guesthouse is a former priest’s apartment, which we have restored and gently adapted to give a carefully balanced mix of private and public space. When we first saw the apartment, we were struck by its light, tranquillity, and sense of peace. We have done our best to preserve these qualities.

There are four double bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, view, and distinctive character. In addition, we have allowed for a generous amount of public space. The dining-room is for quick cups of coffee, long unhurried breakfasts, leisurely pots of tea, the occasional business meeting, or just for sitting around in. You may also choose to sit, drink, and talk at our bar.

Our rates include breakfast, unlimited tea and coffee, and a Wi-Fi connection.

Finally, we are not a hotel, so please don't expect everything to be perfect. But we do do our best to provide our guests with all support they may need, and are always ready with advice and suggestions. And if you’re interested in the architecture, literature, and culture (including the drinking culture) of this fascinating city, then I have a large website devoted to these subjects.

Rates vary depending on season and size of room (50 - 95 euros / night; or 200-300 euros / night for the entire apartment). Discounts for architects, artists, academics, and anybody with a good case to make.

I'm English, but I've more or less got over it (lived in Russia for the best part of 20 years, now live in Berlin for most of the time). I'm a translator by trade; I'm also an amateur builder, furniture-restorer, and cook. For my unconventional take on St Petersburg, see
