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.

Chekhov claims to be a genuinely Russian restaurant. Its nobleman country house atmosphere is created by large lamp shades, antique tables, cupboards with homemade pickles, an antique phonograph and - without a doubt - by its kitchen. The restaurant serves pelmeni dumplings with duck meat and sourcream basil sauce, borshch and pirozhki - little pies with cabbage and egg or halibut and pike perch. In other words, there are a lot of interesting things on the menu, especially for those who like to time travel to the end of the nineteenth century in their daydreams.
