St. Petersburg’s underground
St. Petersburg’s soul. Courtyards, exquisite graffiti, the Rotunda, the Beatles Museum.
The neighbors in these houses probably got to know each other long ago. Aren’t the houses romantic? You get up in the morning, look out the window, brew your coffee and wave to your neighbor.
What is it? It is one of the most legendary and mysterious places in St. Petersburg, at the address 57 Gorohovaya Street. Behind the rusty door of the grand entrance a masterpiece is hidden. Rumors are that the Devil sometimes descends these stairs!
Graffiti-portraits by the HoodGraff team can be seen all over the city. I’ll give you only one hint. The portrait of Sergey Bodrov is situated near the metro station Alexander Nevsky’s Square. The others are yours to find. It’s much more interesting this way, isn’t it? What’s more, you can see lots of other places of interest while searching.
The yards filled with graffiti in Liteyny. Fling yourself into St. Petersburg’s underground.
The Beatles Museum.
Situated in a street with an appropriate name – John Lenon’s Street in the “Pushkinskaya 10” art center. To keep things interesting, I’ll tell you no more.
And lastly, everybody loves holidays, don’t they? The legendary bar Purga celebrates the New Year every day! The address is 11 Fontanka riverwalk.
If you want to really understand a city, you should get to know it from within. Spend more time wandering around without a guide. Become discoverers. Take notes and photos, and share your thoughts and experiences with your friends. And don’t forget to visit The Hermitage and Saint Isaac’s Cathedral. From the cathedral you can take in a wonderful view of the city.
