Location & Directions

Park Inn Pulkovskaya Hotel

Nearest metro: Moskovskaya

The Park Inn Pulkovskaya Hotel is located at the Southern edge of St. Petersburg, only five kilometers from Pulkovo-1 and Pulkovo-2 airports, both of which are easily reachable by car in 15 minutes. The hotel stands on Ploshchad Pobedy (Victory Square), at the end of Moskovskiy Prospekt, which runs directly to Sennaya Ploshchad in the historic center. The surrounding area was developed extensively straight after the Second World War, and is characterized by its grandiose Stalinist architecture and gigantic monuments, not least the enormous war memorial (with underground museum) directly opposite the hotel.

The city center is easily accessible from the Pulkovskaya either by metro (Moskovskaya Metro Station is just over 5 minutes' walk from the hotel, and is on the same line as Nevsky Prospekt, about 20 minutes train ride away), and by bus. The Park Inn Pulkovskaya provides a free minibus shuttle service to/from the center that runs every two hours from 10.00 to 20.00, and there are numerous public bus routes that run past the hotel.

The city's mainline stations are all a fair distance from the Pulkovskaya, and it will take at least forty minutes to reach them by car.

Local Sightseeing

Directly opposite the main entrance to the Pulkovskaya Hotel stands the Monument to the Defenders of Leningrad, a huge panoramic memorial to those who died in the 900-day Siege of Leningrad, constructed in the 1970s. Underneath the memorial is a a large hall containing a museum documenting the Blockade.

Within 30 minutes' drive of the Pulkovskaya, the town of Pushkin, formally Tsarskoe Selo, contains the fabulous Catherine and Alexander Palaces. The former was built for Catherine I by the Italian court architect Bartolomeo Rastrelli, and houses the celebrated Amber Room within its glorious blue-and-white Baroque faade. The extensive park is a delightful place for strolling in the summer, and the town is also the sight of the former Tsar's Lyce, whose most famous pupil was Alexander Pushkin.

A little further down the road from Pushkin, the Pavlovsk Palace, built for Paul I, is much smaller than the Catherine Palace, but is surrounded by a beautiful park laid out in the style of an English landscape garden, with beautiful trees and numerous attractive follies. Both Pushkin and Pavlovsk are perennially popular with visitors to St. Petersburg, especially during the summer months.
