The St Petersburgians make excellent use of space (see parking), as is shown by their use of the pavement as an advertising location. As you walk along the avenues and streets, across the bridges and between the beautiful buildings, your eye is drawn to the many, often colourful, adverts, slogans and signs spray painted onto the ground. Personally, I love it – it adds more colour and life to this already vibrant city and provides something to look at when you walk with your head down to avoid the bitter winds hitting your eyes. Oh yes, it’s been that cold already.
A boutique shop which has moved locations (I believe)
A hostel (one night – from 350 roubles, a month – 9000 roubles)
A bar (called I Simply Love – very literal translation, it’s probably a colloquialism)
A fitness centre on Nevsky Prospekt
A big chain of coffee shops, called ‘Coffee Haus’
The parking – another example of efficient use of space…
From Russia with love.
