Condo/Apartment
This is an atmospheric apartment in the centre of St Petersburg, in the Dostoevskian thick of things. Our neighbourhood is lively. Nevsky 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 apartment is a former priest's apartment, which we have restored and gently adapted to give a carefully balanced mix of private ...This is an atmospheric apartment in the centre of St Petersburg, in the Dostoevskian thick of things.

Our apartment 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 breakfast at the bar in the entrance hall.More
