Description

The space

Hello, everybody! My name’s Anna. I'm the owner of the flat in a historical centre of St.Petersburg. I would be glad to welcome travellers interested in culture of my beloved city, share my personal experience and knowledge to get the best of your stay here. A cozy light room with a perfect view at the heart of the city is at your service (it’s the best for one person or for a couple). I teach English & Art History at school, love travelling myself and have an inspiration to discover again and again the mysterious spirit of the city. So if you wish I can be a guide as well. As I speak English fluently there won’t be any problems in communication.
What I’m really proud of is the view from the apartment. I can spend hours sitting in front of the windows charmed by the beauty of the severe Neva river, tamed by splendid bridges, Summer garden, the Hermitage (Winter Palace), St.Isaak’s Cathedral, cupolas of Church on the Blood, spire of Admiralty trembling in the city lights… What a source of inspiration!
It’s a perfect point to discover St/Petersburg. I’ll recommend the best exiting routs and provide any information you’ll need.

Здравствуйте. Меня зовут Анна, я хозяйка квартиры в историческом центре Санкт-Петербурга. Я буду рада принять путешественников, интересующихся культурой и историей моего родного города, поделиться своим опытом и знаниями с целью сделать ваше путешествие максимально интересным. Светлая, уютная комната с прекрасным видом на Неву к вашим услугам (для 1 гостя или пары). Я преподаватель английского языка и истории искусств, люблю путешествовать и вдохновенно рассказывать о своем городе. Возможны дополнительные услуги гида по вашему желанию.
Я поистине горжусь видом, открывающимся из окон квартиры, здесь можно проводить часы, заворожено глядя на суровую красавицу Неву, укрощенную ажурными мостами, Летний сад, Зимний дворец, Исаакиевский собор, купола Спаса на крови, дрожащий в огнях вечернего города шпиль Адмиралтейства. Прекрасный источник для вдохновения!..
Это замечательная отправная точка для изучения города. Я посоветую лучшие маршруты для ваших прогулок. Мне посчастливилось жить напротив уникального первого домика Петра, наблюдая за тем, как сияющий ангел благославляет наш город с высоты шпиля Петропавловского собора, который находится в 5 минутах ходьбы. Именно здесь по воле Петра был заложен великий город. Позвольте поделиться с вами одним из моих любимых стихотворений поэтессы и музы Петербурга Анна Ахматовой.
Летний Сад

Я к розам хочу, в тот единственный сад, Где лучшая в мире стоит из оград,
Где статуи помнят меня молодой,
А я их под невскою помню водой.

В душистой тиши между царственных лип
Мне мачт корабельных мерещится скрип.

И лебедь, как прежде, плывет сквозь века,
Любуясь красой своего двойника.

И замертво спят сотни тысяч шагов
Врагов и друзей, друзей и врагов.

А шествию теней не видно конца
От вазы гранитной до двери дворца.

Там шепчутся белые ночи мои
О чьей-то высокой и тайной любви.

И все перламутром и яшмой горит,
Но света источник таинственно скрыт.
1959

Дорогие друзья, до встречи в Санкт-Петербурге!

Доступно гостям

Возможна организация питания. Я люблю готовить и с радостью познакомлю вас с блюдами русской кухни. В качестве дополнительной услуги возможна организация трансфера из аэропорта.

Правила дома

Нельзя курить, приводить посторонних, привозить домашних животных.

Guest access

We'll share the living room and a kitchen. It’s possible to organize meal. I like to cook so if you’d like to have meal at the apartment and may be you’re interested in the flavor of Russian Cuisine, I can help.
Transfer to the airport is possible. My family owns a car. So car excursions, particularly to the amazing suburbs of St. Petersburg (Peterhof, Pushkin, Pavlovsk and others) are to be discussed.

Interaction with guests

I'm glad to communicate as much as you wish.
It's possible to organise the invitation in order to get Russian visa (about 20 euro if you stay for not more than a week).

The neighbourhood

I’m lucky to live in front of the unique first house of Peter the Great (Russian tsar, founder of St. Petersburg) and watch the shining golden angel blessing the city from the top of the spire of Peter and Paul Cathedral which is in the centre of famous Peter and Paul Fortress in 5 minutes walk . This is the actual historical place where by Peter’s mighty will the city was born.

Getting around

Undegraund "Gorkovskaya" is 7 min walk. Tram stop is 5 min walk.

Other things to note

Let me share one of my favorite poems by both poet and muse of St.Petersburg Anna Akhmatova
Summer Garden

I crave for the roses and garden my best,
That’s clad in the best in the word airy fence.

Where statues remember me youthful and blessed,
And I – them all covered by Neva’s cold waves.

In silence, so fragrant, amidst limes of kings,
I hear: the ship's masts are squeaking in swings.

And sails the white swain through the ages again,
Enjoying the charm of his brother-of-twain.

And deadly sleep hundreds of thousands steps
Of friends and of foes, of foes and friends.

And the train of shadows has no the end
From vase’s granite to the palace of grand.

There whisper each other my white nightly skies
Of somebody’s love, very secret and high.

And all shines with jasper and pearl in the night…
But nobody knows a source of the light.

1959

Dear friends, hope to see you here!.. Kind wishes. Anna

I really enjoyed my stay at Anna's place! She and her husband were extremely helpful and I have no complaints whatsoever. Just one example: they give you a phone with a local SIM-card so that you can contact Anna in case you need to. The location is very good - less than 10 minutes from the closest metro station and the views of the city are as shown in the pictures. I'd definitely recommend this place and would happily return!

My girlfriend and I had a great time in staying with Anna. She did whatever she could for us, provided us with lots of information on the city, sights, and history. Her knowledge was of great help getting around St. Petersburg. Anna's husband was just as friendly and supportive. The flat is in excellent location, very clean and comfortable. The view is stunning indeed. We do recommend staying with Anna!
