      New Years Eve ball or restaurant

      Saint Petersburg Sep 23, 2016 at 8:33 PM

      Hi everyone,

      Hoping for some advice on where to go for New Years Eve in Saint Petersburg...

      I realise that this is a very important time for Russian families to spend time with each other. However, for guests to the country, what would you suggest would be the most interesting thing to do / place to visit to get a taste of NYE festivities?

      I know a lot of people will wander along Nevsky Prospect to gather in Palace Square. Not particularly into drunken crowds, so would rather consider something like:

      1. A quieter place but still good views to see the fireworks... Perhaps Strelka?
      2. The best restaurant that will offer excellent food with festive / cultural entertainment... perhaps L'Europe or Bellevue Brasserie?
      3. A NYE ball or other cultural occasion, such as the Tsar's Ball at Catherine Palace, but perhaps not quite so prohibitively expensive!

      Thank you for any advice!

      Best time to buy ballet tickets

      Saint Petersburg Sep 18, 2016 at 11:01 PM

      Hi,
      I heard on a podcast some local recommend you buy tickets for performances in Saint Petersburg directly from the box office rather than purchasing them online beforehand. Apparently, they are much cheaper that way.
      Anyone else care to weigh in on this? From personal experience, is it much cheaper to purchase tickets upon arrival in Saint Petersburg? What about performances selling out?
      Would love to know your opinion.
      Thanks!

      If you had a choice of seeing either Catherine the Great Palace or Peterhoff, which would you choose?

    • abstract sculpture in Pushkin

      by farber Online Now Sep 2, 2004 at 12:26 PM

      As you enter Pushkin, there is an abstract sculpture--just before you reach the Alexander palace. It is made of metal and looks like a person with his/her head on their knees. Does anyone have a photo of this? Does anyone know its title? artist? Any information you might have would be most helpful. Mary
