Best areas to stay in St Petersburg
When choosing which area to stay in during your trip to the Russian city, the best thing to do is find the most centrally located accommodation, although these are often the more expensive options. If you are staying in the historic centre, you'll have the benefit of being able to explore its streets and discover their legendary history on foot.
The areas around Nevsky Prospect and Palace Square are highly recommended, as they're ideally located to see the city's most important places of interest and enjoy its charms without having to travel far.
If you're travelling on a budget, it's best to look for hotels or hostels further out of the city centre, and use public transport to reach the places you want to see. The added bonus of this is getting to see lots of St Petersburg's beautiful metro stations.
