Location & Directions

Ibis St. Petersburg Centre Hotel

Nearest metro: Ploshad Vosstaniya

Just five minutes' walk from Moskovsky Station, the Ibis St. Petersburg Centre Hotel is in the very center of St. Petersburg, 500m from Nevsky Prospekt, and with excellent transport links to almost every corner of the city.

Moskovsky Station is St. Petersburg's largest mainline railway stations, serving nearly all of the daily trains to Moscow and elsewhere in central and southern Russia. Ploshchad Vosstaniya and Mayakovskaya Metro Stations can be entered next to the main station concourse. There are also numerous bus, trolleybus, and tram services running along Ligovsky Prospekt and Nevsky Prospekt.

St. Petersburg's other central mainline station, Vitebsky Station (which serves trains to Belarus and the Baltic States) can be reached by car from the Ibis in under ten minutes. Ladozhsky Station, which is the terminus for trains from Finland and Northern Russian, is about 30 minutes' drive away. Pulkovo International Airport is around 15km from the hotel, and the drive will take 30-50 minutes under normal traffic conditions.

Local Sightseeing

Most of St. Petersburg's major visitor attractions, including the Hermitage, St. Isaac's Cathedral, and the Church of Our Saviour on the Spilled Blood, are situated on or around the western end of Nevsky Prospekt, and can be easily reached from the Ibis St. Petersburg Centre in around 20 minutes by bus or metro. The area around the hotel, however, is not rich in historic monuments.

Ploshchad Vosstaniya, five minutes' walk away, is home to a monument marking St. Petersburg's (Leningrad's) status as a "Hero City" - the title given to the Soviet cities that bore the brunt of the Nazi invasion. In Leningrad's case, this was for surviving the brutal 900-day siege.

The Alexander Nevsky Monastery, at the far end of Nevsky Prospekt, is a short walk from the hotel. The monastery is named in honor of one of the city's patron saints, the defender of the Russian lands in the 13th century. Founded by Peter the Great in 1713, it contains an Orthodox seminary, the splendid Troitsky Cathedral and two memorial cemeteries where several famous people are buried, including Dostoevsky, Glinka, Tchaikovsky and Mussorgsky.

The Museum of the Arctic and Antarctic is about 10 minutes' walk from the hotel. This is the only museum of its type in Russia and one of major museums of polar exploration in the world. It is home to 75,000 items dating from the 16th century to the present day.
