Description
This opening fold-out contains a general map of St. Petersburg to help you visualize the 6 large districts discussed in this guide, and 4 pages of valuable information, handy tips and useful addresses.
Discover St. Petersburg through 6 districts and 6 maps
St Isaac's Cathedral/ The Admiralty/ The Hermitage
Nevsky Prospekt/ The Summer Garden/ Gostiny dvor
Haymarket/ Theater Square
Vasilyevsky Island
Petrograd side/ Peter and Paul Fortress
Fontanka/ Smolny/ Alexander Nevsky Monastery
For each district there is a double-page of addresses (restaurants -- listed in ascending order of price -- cafes, bars, tearooms, music venues and stores) followed by a fold-out map for the relevant area with the essential places to see (indicated on the map by a star *). These places are by no means all that St. Petersburg has to offer but to us they are unmissable. The grid-referencing system (A B2) makes it easy for you to pinpoint addresses quickly on the map.
Transportation and hotels in St Petersburg
The last fold-out consists of a transportation map and 4 pages of practical information that include a selection of hotels.
A thematic index lists all the sites and addresses featured in this guide.
