If all those amazing events aren’t enough to sway you, let us give you a few more reasons to come to St Petersburg this autumn.

  • Between October and December we’ll be offering an incredible discount of 20% for Guest house accommodation. That’s 200 euros per week instead of the usual 250 for all rooms booked for October - December.
    The guest house is a nice, cosy place that is close to the school (a factor that should be particularly import to those booking accommodation in St Petersburg’s rainy season). Find out more about the guest house here
  • We’ll also be offering a free pick-up transfer for all those who are booking a room in shared flats between October and December.
    Our shared flats are one of the best places you can live when you are travelling in St Petersburg; they provide a great chance to meet friends from all around the world and you’ll always have company for dinner. See more about the shared flat here
