Ever heard about the pirate ship in St. Petersburg?
03 October, 2016
A magical pirate ship was found on the riverbank in Saint Petersburg!
This weekend I had one of my best culinary experiences since I am living here in Saint Petersburg. After the visit of the impressive Peter and Paul Fortress, I felt very frozen because of the strong wind on this day and I watched out for a good-looking café. After some time strolling along the Neva River, I found an interesting pirate ship and I wondered what could have been there inside? I was very curious and went inside.
The whole ship is called “Letuchiy Gollandets” or “The flying Dutchman” and was a big complex including three restaurants with an amazing view to the big sights of Saint Petersburg. You can decide between Japanese, Russian and Italian cuisine. Furthermore, with its three-mast sailboat that looks like a unique copy of the Dutch Fleur Amsterdam of the year 1748, it is one of the landmarks of the city.
The Flying Dutchman is a cult club project because for already six years the parties on the ship have been considered as the best place for the high society column of the city.
The Flying Dutchman means personal grace, sophistication, success and precious time of the ship guests who come here over and over again.
The Terrassa restaurant on the boat with its Italian and French cuisine in well-known in Saint Petersburg because of the famous Italian cook Lucio Pompilli. In addition to these good restaurants, the Flying Dutchman offers its clients the elite fitness centre with three halls as well as the beauty treatment salon.
Anyway, my personal highlight was the Panorama restaurant at the second floor with its amazing view all over the city. I visited the restaurant around 6:30 PM and had the luck to see one of the most beautiful things in the city. At this time, it was already very dark outside and suddenly at 7 PM, all the lights went on and fabulous transformed the city. It was just magical and I was so happy to see this unique moment once.
