Здравствуйте из северной столицы России! I’m Tom, one of the new interns at Liden & Denz. The U.K. is the place I call home, but I have the great fortune to be spending the following month in Saint Petersburg. One of my favourite cities in the entire world! It now seems like a fair while ...

There are a lot of things I love about Russia, but I’m definitely obsessed with food. If you’re planning to visit St.Petersburg (or Russia in general), mentally prepare yourself: you’ll gain some weight! It is impossible to resist delicious – and very affordable – street food while walking around the city. So, here are some ...

Anyone keeping track of the articles coming out of the St. Petersburg campus at the moment will realise that we are not being blessed with the best summer weather. As far as sightseeing goes in these circumstances, it’s limited to wandering around museums (like the Erarta museum – a little bit of self-promo never hurt ...

I’ve always been a sucker for artsy spaces. Bookstores, coffee shops, galleries, studios–anywhere that sells crafts, handmade gizmos and gadgets and I’m there. I was, therefore, thrilled to discover that throughout Saint Petersburg are several spaces that are solely dedicated to small businesses in the fields of art, design, and any sort of craft food/product. ...

Despite all evidence to the contrary, it is, in fact, summer in St. Petersburg. Even though it’s been largely cold and rainy since my arrival in June, every once in awhile the sun decides to come out, and when it does, you can see young lovers strolling down the streets and lounging in parks at ...

A few weeks ago I did a spotlight on three must-read contemporary female Russian poets, and this time I’m following up with a spotlight on contemporary Russian prose. I’d venture to guess that most of us who study Russian literature are generally presented with the classics: Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Chekhov, Gogol, Bulgakov, Solzhenitsyn, Nabokov. While I ...

I was walking down Nevsky prospect with a hostel mate early one morning. He couldn’t get over the number of columns there were everywhere, remarking that is was like being in Rome or something. So how is it that a city in Russia came to be influenced by Italian design? It starts with the transition ...
