Brilliant river views -

The space

86 sq. meters of brilliantly lit open space. The apartment is located in the historical city center, a 10 minute walk from the Mariinsky Theatre, the St. Nicolas Cathedral and several metro stations. Its 6 arched windows look out over the Fontanka River (second in size only to the Neva) and from its bay windows you can see the Trinity Cathedral and the Amiralty Shipyard.
Enjoy cieling heights of almost 4 meters and views of historical buildings accros the river, including the house of Alexandar Pushkin.
The apartment is divided into 4 spaces, all connected with one another in an open floor plan: a dining-room/kitchen, a living room, a sitting room, a bedroom (only this one can be closed off with two large sliding doors).
Besides the double bed, there are two fold-out couches (one king, the other twin size).
Everything was recently beautifully renovated, with minute attention to detail.

Stunning apartment. Photos don’t tell how spacious and light it is. Location is okay — you can’t go wrong with living on a river’s bank! It’s not in the very center of the city, but a short commute (or 20-30 minutes walk along the river) is not a burden. Mind the piano — it’s tuned and is positioned strategically so acoustic is great and sound fills the whole flat. Nicolaus was super helpful, even though he was abroad during our stay. He provided us with everything we needed and was okay with our rather vague checkin time.

We had a wonderful stay in Olga and Nic's apt, which is ideally located in the historical centre of St.Petersburg. The spacious apt features nice lights, a lovely view onto a canal and we are pleased to recommend it with no hesitation.

PERFECT!!! The appartment is better than the photos show!! It's amazing place for four guest, the toilet and the kitchen are so nice and you can have breakfast and dinner looking to Fontanki Channel!! It's not in the center but the 212 bus is two minutes walking and take you to the center in 10 or 15 minutes!! If I return to Sant Petersburg I will rent the dame appartment, for sure!!! And Anya, the giro Whois welcome us is very nice, speak perfect english and help us with everything.

My fiancé and I stayed at Nicolaus and Olga's place for 3 nights. The comfortable and spacious apartment with high ceilings and many large window is right next to the river. The views from the apartment are amazing and the interior is tasteful and convenient. If you don't mind walking about 20 Minutes to the next Metro station this place is highly recommendable. (Taxi is affordable, if you negotiate with the drivers). We had a great time.

The apartment is styled to a really high standard.The layout is great and it has lovely view over the river and attention the detail is a nice added touch. Close to the city and has easy reach with a bus or walking. We found a great Italian restaurant not far form the apartment called Romeo's that is well worth a visit! (URL HIDDEN) We enjoyed our stay in Olga and Nicolaus' apartment.

Olga and Nic have a fabulous apartment in Saint Petersburg! The views of the river are gorgeous, it is beautifully furnished and incredibly spacious. Olga was a very sweet host who had flowers and sparkling wine ready for us upon check in. This is a great apartment for a long term stay in Saint Petersburg because the apartment is so comfortable. It is a bit of a hike to the train station (about a 15-20 minute walk) but if you don't mind being a bit away from the center of town and prefer a more relaxed stay, I highly recommend this apartment.

We're from Germany and Russia and together with our son we've lived in a bunch of places. We love travelling, being with our friends and meeting new people, but don't always have as much time for all those pleasant things, as we'd like to.
