Learn Russian at Liden & Denz St. Petersburg


Since June 2015, Liden & Denz in St. Petersburg is located at Italianskaya ulitsa 17, at the south-eastern edge of the Square of Arts (Ploshad Iskusstv), between the Philharmonia and the historical shopping arcade Passage. The area is rich in landmark buildings, such as the Grand Hotel Europe, the Russian Museum or the Mikhailovsky theatre. The closest metro station (Nevsky Prospekt/Gostiny Dvor)  is reachable on foot in less than 5 minutes.

You cannot be more central in St.Petersburg! Our new home has been purposely built from the ground up – in a historical and newly renovated building. Latest technologies were implemented including LED lighting throughout, efficient sound insulation, state of the art ventilation in all rooms, and a super fast WiFi network. All 13 classrooms come with a modern design and have access to natural light. All windows (18 in total) open the view to a quiet yard in the historical centre of St. Petersburg.

We believe it to be the ideal environment to learn Russian!
