Last week Russkie Prostori team were invited to one of the most beautiful palaces in St.Petersburg where G8 and G20 were held. We learn some really useful information and took some pictures there!

State complex “The National Congress Palace” is located on the picturesque coast of the Gulf of Finland, far from the city vanity, in the green space of St.Petersburg. “The National Congress Palace” combines the functions of the state residence, historical and cultural reserve and the business centre. It is opened for carrying out various actions: scientific and political forums, corporate meetings, exhibitions and presentations.

This great complex marks its 10th anniversary. During these years became an integral part of St.Petersburg and some people call it the Northern Kremlin. Our team spent about a day there communicating with managers of the complex, viewing Congress Palace, conference halls pf the hotel “Baltic star”, banquet halls of “Consul village” and so on.

The five-star hotel “Baltic star” is an integral part of the State complex. It is located between the world-famous centers of culture and rest: Peterhof, Tsarskoje Selo and Pavlovsk. The hotel’s location is 20 minutes away from the airport and 30 minutes from the historical centre of St.Petersburg. The four-storied building is executed in the style of an antique Russian mansion and there is a unique view of the Konstantin palace and park ensemble from the hotel’s windows. Near the hotel the Consular village is situated. It is the small VIP-class village composed of 20 two-storied cottages of a “de-luxe”-class. Each of them bears the name of the Great Russian city, and their arrangement reminds the Russia’s map in miniature. Interiors of all the cottages are decorated by subjects of the modern art of those of region of Russia in honor of which they have received a name.

After the show we all saw great fireworks right from the summer terrace where the view to the whole park is fascinating. We think that state complex “The National Congress Palace” can be a right venue for different events. It is good place for a really large event if you would like to use the whole complex but also it is very convenient for a small group for example when you may use only part of it. Anyway right now Russkie Prostori has all the information and you are welcome to send us your questions and requests.
