Location & Directions

Nevsky Forum Hotel

Nearest metro: Mayakovskaya

The Nevsky Forum Hotel enjoys a prime location on Nevsky Prospekt, St. Petersburg's famous central avenue. Although the hotel is at the eastern end of Nevsky, just over 1km away from the "Golden Triangle" of St. Petersburg's most popular historic visitor attractions, the Nevsky Forum is very conveniently located for business and leisure travellers, with Moskovsky Station only a few minutes' walk away, and excellent public transport links.

Mayakovskaya, the nearest metro station, is right next to the Nevsky Forum. From there it is only one stop to Gostiny Dvor, for sights including the Hermitage, the State Russian Museum, and Kazan and St. Isaac's Cathedrals.

Moskovsky Railway Station is only five minutes' walk from the Nevsky Forum on Ploshchad Vosstaniya. Vitebsky Station, which is about 2km from the hotel, can be reached by taxi in 10-15 minutes. Alternatively, guests can take the metro two stops from Ploshchad Vosstaniya to Pushkinskaya, right next to the station. Ladozhsky Station is across the Neva River in the east of the city, and can be reached by car in around 20-30 minutes.

Pulkovo-2 International Airport is around 17km from the Nevsky Forum, and the drive to/from the hotel can take from 40-90 minutes, depending on traffic conditions. Pulkovo-1, the terminal for domestic flights, is a further 2km out of the city.

Local Sightseeing

The Nevsky Forum Hotel is situated on the eastern section of Nevsky Prospekt, while most of St. Petersburg's most popular visitor attractions are on or around the western stretch across the Fontanka River. They can, however, be easily accessed from the hotel by bus or metro.

In the immediate vicinity of the hotel - apart from the shopping, restaurants, and bars on Nevsky Prospekt - there are a few historic sights of interest. The most impressive of them is the Church of the Vladimir Icon of the Mother of God on Vladimirsky Prospekt, about ten minutes' walk from the Nevsky Forum. This magnificent church with its striking belltower was completed in 1783 and was worked on by numerous architects. Spanning baroque and neoclassical traditions, it has a surprisingly harmonious form, and is famous for its superb iconostasis.

Closer to the hotel on Ulitsa Marata, the Museum of the Arctic and Antarctic is housed in what also used to be a church, and contains a huge collections of exhibits and artifacts chronicling Russian and Soviet exploration of the two polar regions.
