Local Sightseeing

The Nevsky Hotel Aster is ideally situated for sightseeing, with all of St. Petersburg's most famous landmarks and museums within walking distance. The Winter Palace, home to the Hermitage, one of the world's greatest art museums and one of the main reasons to visit St. Petersburg, is just over five minutes' walk from the hotel, as are the city's three grandest churches - Kazan Cathedral, St. Isaac's Cathedral, and the Church of Our Saviour on the Spilled Blood.

In the immediate vicinity of the hotel, the closest building of interest is the Lutheran Church of St. Peter and St. Paul, one of several 'foreign' churches along Nevsky Prospekt that bear witness to St. Petersburg's cosmopolitan history. A center of the city's large German community, this elegant neo-Norman church was completed in 1838 and designed by famous local architect Alexander Bryullov. Although it was turned into a swimming pool during the Soviet period, it is once again an active church, hosting Lutheran and Anglican services.

Close to the hotel across Nevsky Prospekt, the Stroganoff Palace, built by court architect Francesco Bartolomeo Rastrelli (the designer of the Winter Palace and the Catherine Palace in Tsarskoye Selo). Completed in 1760, this superb Baroque building is one of the finest palaces in St. Petersburg, and was home to one of Russia's most prominent aristocratic families right up until the Revolution. The palace has now been placed in the care of the State Russian Museum. Its historic interiors are being completely restored and the palace is used for a variety of exhibitions connected with its history.
