Saint Petersburg is one of Russia’s most picturesque cities. Its residents love it to the point of unquestionable adoration. To try and understand these feelings of we recommend joining the crowd of high school graduates at the Palace embankment for the Scarlet sails celebration, visiting a local club to hear one of city’s rock legends live, going out to the Lieutenant Schmidt embankment for the Navy Day to see the Baltic Fleet warships or buying a ticket for a home match of St. Petersburg’s iconic FC Zenit.

Pyshechnaya/Doughnut Shop is the stuff of city legends. The recipes for the doughnuts (pyshki and don’t call them ponchiki like they do in Moscow) and for the coffee from the “tank” have been unchanged since the shop opened in 1958, when Bolshaya Konyushennaya Ulitsa was still named after revolutionary Zhelyabov. The locals call it “doughnut shop at Zhelyabova”. The piping hot airy doughnuts with a generous dusting of confectionary sugar and waxed paper instead of napkins have been around for 57 years.
