    HOW TO GET THE BEST
    Tripster hasn`t an English version, but, you can easily book a excursion on the Russian-lang website!
    Why do you need it and how can you do this without knowing a word in Russian?

    In fact, many Tripster guides speak English. Ask a question before booking if your provider will approve the presence of foreigners. Yes, this is not always possible for safety reasons, but in many cases it won't be a problem.

    Tripster offers the most unusual excursions, that foreigners don't even know exist. And don`t always need knowledge of Russian. For example, if you want to fly a plane, sail on a kayak or SUP board in the historical center, or book a professional rooftop photo session in the old town!

    Dear travelers!
    Due to the sanctions imposed against Russia, most well-known reservation services, including Booking and Airbnb, temporarily do not provide accommodation options in Russia. Therefore, we have replaced them with the best similar Russian services.

    In fact, it is even better and safer for you, because you can be absolutely sure that your reservation will not be canceled for any political reasons. And your money, if prepayment is required under the terms of the booking, will be returned to you in case of cancellation of the reservation (excluding cancellation fees due to the fault of the traveler, if indicated in the booking conditions).

    But let's be honest, of course, Russian reservation services are not yet as cool as Booking. For example, the description and rating of hotels, as well as current reviews, are less informative. But we know a little life hack!
    If you want to get detailed information about the hotel and read traveler`s reviews on the Booking.com website (click), do it like this

    a) Indicate the exact name of object in the search form. If you do not know or are not sure, then find, copy and paste from Ostrovok.ru )
    Very important! In this case, do not indicate the dates of check-in and check-out! If you have already done this (maybe a little earlier), do not worry, the second method will definitely work.

    b) Enter the name of the hotel, city and reservation system into GOOGLE search box. For example 'Hotel Astoria, St. Petersburg, Booking com'. Find the link you want and be happy!

    Dear Friends! We present you an unusual concept for travel. Our main motto (we hope yours too) is 'Don't go inside, stay outside'. Why so?

    Trying to be everywhere at the same time and running from one museum to another is a very common mistake many beginner travelers make. Various palaces and exhibitions maybe are very good, but believe, for you this is not the main thing. In most cases, it is best to refuse to visit them altogether. But not in this case!

    Of course, if football matches and concerts of world star music groups mean little to you, then okay, stay outside even here. But it's a must to go there!
    Gazprom Arena (also known as Zenit Arena, Krestovsky or Saint Petersburg Stadium) is a unique, breathtaking sports facility and an tourist sight in itself. Together with stunning views of the Gulf of Finland and Gazprom Tower, our, one of the best and most modern stadiums in Europe, will show you new northern capital of Russia and give you many great photos to remember!
    And now about the most important! The best pictures in your albums and enjoyment of memories are our main mission! Don`t spend time searching for a place to take iconic photos. We show you only top spots and specify absolutely exact coordinates!
    This is very usefully for you, because point for a good shot does not always coincide with the exact location of the attractions themselves! What this mean

    SPOILER. The point to get the most famous postcard view of the Gazprom-Arena is not at all near the stadium. And where - even many locals do not know. But you will find out today! And not only this! You will get info:
    1) where, with an accuracy of one meter or foot, you will get all best iconic pictures
    2) the better ways how to go there
    3) how to buy tickets for a match, concert and even exclusive inside stadium tour
    4) useful tips and life-hacks

    TIPS FOR VISITORS & SELFIE MAKERS

    ✅ Be an early bird! If you came to a football match or concert, then your subway train, bus, tram or even taxi must arrive to destination stop no later than 1 hour 30 minutes before the start of the show!

    On the days of the top events, the access of any vehicle to the stadium and the surrounding area may be limited or even completely prohibited. Therefore, regardless what type of transport used, next you will have to walk about half an hour.

    The security procedure at the gate can also take quite a long time, especially with a large number of visitors. But even when you have passed all the checks, the distance to your seat or place is still quite large - because the stadium is so big!

    So, the main rule is 'Come early, and even more earlier is better'. For example, if you want to see a warming-up show or a flag presentation ceremony. But that's not the only reason!

    More info about Gazprom Arena

    ✅ Clothing and shoes. Locals call St. Petersburg the city of rains. This does not mean that this happens 365 days a year, but the probability is quite high. Since the stadium is located on the shore of the bay, strong winds are also not uncommon. Just in case check the weather forecast to understand if you need an umbrella and warm clothes outside the stadium.

    ✅ Choice of entry gate. Hand luggage. To save time, check your ticket and select entrance. If possible, don`t take items that require inspection as this adds additional time for entry. Important! Any bags, backpacks, packages, etc. cannot exceed size 40 x 40 x 45 cm. If your bag(s) does exceed the stated size, left items in one of the storage rooms. See on the map

    ✅ Food & Water. A bottle of water and some food in a bag is a good idea for those walking around. However, when entering the stadium, remember that your container or bottle must be of a soft material (not iron or glass) and not exceed 0.5 L in volume. Access directly to the block (sector, dance space) is possible only with non-closable containers, such as paper or plastic cups.

    Of course, at the Gazprom Arena and near the stadium you can buy a variety of fast food, snacks, ice cream and drinks. We also recommend stopping by one of the restaurants or bars nearby. On the days of matches or concerts, it is better to book a table in advance. It`s simple. Open the list, choose what suits you best, find website link in the description and make a reservation.
    If the website does not have an English page, use an online translator. Just copy and paste the link.

    ✅ Enjoy life! About 2-3 hrs before the start of the event, different game, creative and other active zones become open for the visitors, where you can put on face paint in colours of the teams, do a hair in style of your idol, play various games, take a photo to remember, buy the fans wear and other souvenirs. Take a walk through the stadium incl visit the upper tiers with a beautiful views. You can also take part in the fan parade (starting from 'Krestovsky Ostrov' subway, usually two hours before the match)

    Even when there are no events in the stadium, you can have a great time here, for example, get an exclusive tour inside the stadium (conducted when there are no events only). Very close to Gazprom Arena are one of the largest in Russia water park and extreme amusement park

    Do you want to fly in a wind tunnel? And, maybe, on a helicopter and see all the best sights of St. Petersburg from a bird's eye view? It's a two steps from the arena. And right here and now in front of you!
    ✅ I was here! The two most important things you bring home from a trip are memories and photos. How and where to get a little more much more than other travelers, read below. But even if your phone supplies Insta, WeChat or FB only 'I was here' pictures, it's more correct to take them in the best place for this.

    Gazprom Arena is great from everywhere. But before you press the button, you'll notice that somehow the composition of the frame is not quite perfect. Either the stadium is too big, or too small, or there are extraneous structures in the frame. But there is an ideal place and it is here! The long and wide promenade in front of the stadium gives you an excellent backdrop and high-quality photos, both portrait and full-length. Look above (& click to zoom) at the real photos you will receive in this point

    ✅ Want to go! Best time? There is probably no need to specially come directly to the stadium, if nothing is happening here. The Russians say that all good things are best seen from a distance. Where exactly - see below. But when?

    Well, at any time! Of course, If you came to the stadium because you bought a ticket, you don't choose the date, the time, the weather, or the lighting conditions. But our special recommendation is the time between evening and night, when the stadium lights are already on and the sky is not yet completely dark.

    Everyone and always especially advise to visit St. Petersburg during the so-called White Nights period - approx from end of May to the end of July. The best time for romantic walks in summer is early morning, about 4 - 4:30 AM. In the pre-dawn mist, the city looks particularly magical!

    In addition, there is another elegant way to see one of the best views in St. Petersburg - book a room with a panorama of the bay and the coastline.

    CHOOSE ACCOMMODATION
    Dear Travelers!
    Due to the sanctions imposed against Russia, most well-known reservation services, including Booking and Airbnb, temporarily do not provide accommodation options in Russia. Therefore, we have replaced them with the best similar Russian services. Read more
    Dear travelers! In fact, there are hundreds and thousands of accommodation options. Use the form below to search
    SEVERAL TIPS. In many places of accommodation with the best location in relation to the stadium or simply in high season, bookings are possible for a minimum of 2 or even 3 nights. Remember this when you see the message 'no places'.

    Your adventures at Gazprom Arena will always be amazing, but still a little tiring. It's great when a cozy bed awaits you few steps from the attraction. Moreover, it is not always expensive. You can stay, for example, in a hostel for about $10 per night/person, or in a 'bed & breakfast' type hotel from $25 per night/room.

    Is your budget between $50 and 100? You will have, at least, an excellent hotel close to the stadium, if you wish, then along with SPA or even water attractions
    If the main reason for you is not the proximity to the stadium, but the view from the window, this one, then check aviability for your travel dates also here(choose the river view option!)

    Well, if money is not a problem for you at all, then take a look at these premium apartments, or maybe even house on the water
    LIFEHACK! If you gather a large group of friends (up to 10 persons), then accommodation in a water house will cost no more than a normal 3-star hotel!

    Also please don't forget, that on the days of top-rated matches, concerts and just in the high season, placements run out very-very quickly! So why not start planning your trip now? Book your stay with free cancellation option if your travel plans change.

    See all available options for your vacation on
    If you prefer to stay in private apartments (houses, cottages), we recommend you also to see options on SUTOCHNO.RU
    This is the largest Russian service of daily rate apartments, an analogue of the well-known Airbnb.
    Although this service also has an English version, it is primarily intended for Russians. And this is a great chance for you to get more and better for less money.

    Many owners place their offers exactly here, because BOOKING COM and AIRBNB charges too much taxes. Therefore, on SUTOCHNO.RU there are always more options for living in apartments, and the cost is often lower than on world famous booking platforms.

    However, please note that booking and cancellation policies are different. You must make a prepayment in any case. And cancellation fees will be charged between 50 and 100 percent of the cost, depending on the date of cancellation.

    We always recommend visiting not only the central streets and squares, and right now you are in such a must-see place! Besides the Gazprom Arena, perhaps the main attraction and symbol of modern St. Petersburg is also the tallest building in Europe (462 m) located here - the Gazprom Tower

    Even if you came just to a match or a concert, find some time to look at the stadium not just as a visitor, but also from other angles. Namely:

    a) from the Makarov Embankment (almost all 'stock' pictures)
    b) from 'Petrovkaya Kosa' Spit (the best panoramic view)

    d) and of course from water (deck of the boat)

The cost is fixed at the time of pre-order and never rises - either when the driver is waiting for the passenger, when the stop is necessary, or because of traffic jams.

    Our choice and recommendation is KIWITAXI. This is the best company in Russia providing shuttle services. By the way, reservation a ride with KiwiTaxi is available in almost any country. Remember this on your next trip!
    Check prices & book a ride
    This is an honest guide. Therefore, we do not recommend this service if your place of accommodation (or just pick-up point) is close to the Gazprom Arena. In this case, it is much more better to order a regular taxi. But but if the distance is quite large, for example, departure point is airport or train stations, then a private transfer is really a convenient and profitable option.

    The Gazprom Arena is located directly on the border of the Primorsky and Petrogradsky administrative districts of St Petersburg. But the real location of the stadium formally is in the Petrogradsky district. Therefore in the search form below, by default, Petrogradsky District of Saint Petersburg is listed as the point of destination.

    Why not the exact address, but the name of the district? The point is that a private transfer service is not a taxi. Therefore, the company's server contains the address base of only the largest and most popular objects among potential passengers. But this does not mean that you cannot order a transfer exactly where you want. Read how to do this right here and now!

    So, enter the starting and ending points of your route. Replace the data or direction in the form below, if necessary. First, try to specify exact address of your location / your hotel name. And if the booking system cannot find your place, then specify in the form the name of the District of St Petersburg as the point of departure or arrival.

    If you are not sure or don't know, then this is not a problem! Just find and click this point on the map, copy the coordinates and paste into the booking form. The system itself will understand which area you are looking for. Or do it like this
    Next, enter the exact address of departure / arrival on the second step of booking. In this case, one of the points is Futbolnaya Alleya, 8, exit from the parking - GPS 59.970611, 30.229028
    (or in Russian - Футбольная аллея, 8, выезд с парковки - GPS 59.970611, 30.229028 - copy/paste).

    NOTE. Make no mistake! If you order a transfer by entering this address, your driver will be waiting for you in this point. On days of very important events (check with the organizer), vehicle access to the stadium may be limited or completely prohibited. In this case, use addresses outside Krestovsky Island as departure/arrival points!

    BEWARE OF SCAMS
    NEVER DO IT!
    Never use illegal taxis! It can be too expensive and even unsafe!


    Dear travelers! In Russia, as in any other country, basic precautions must be followed and we will try to help you with this. How to distinguish normal taxi from fake cabs? Pay attention to certain details.

    Most often, you can meet scammers at the airport, train stations, in popular tourist spots, as well as directly next to these places.
    Usually these are individual drivers or their agents who compulsively offer 'shuttle services'. They can disguise themselves as legal cabmans, for example, wear badges of well-known companies.

    THE MAIN SAFETY RULE: Never accept even very profitable offers from random taxicab drivers or agents, even if they appear to be official carriers. In 99,9 cases out of 100, they are fraudsters!
    Order a taxi only via apps, websites or by phone, as well as at official carrier desks (for example, at the airport).

    If you have no choice and you pick-up a taxi right on the street, take pains to choose a branded taxicab or, at least, agree on the cost of the trip in advance. If you use cash, pay only in Russian rubles! Tell the driver about it!

    Please see the detailed illustrated guide

    via app
    In Russia, ordering a taxi via a mobile app is as easy as in your country. Already have Uber installed? Fine! Then you can already request a taxicab in Moscow and St. Petersburg. However, we recommend to install the Russian equivalent of the Uber app - YandexGo

    Your normal Uber has a global map with a limited address base in Russia. Therefore, using the usual app, you can call a taxi, for example, from the airport to a famous hotel or to the main streets of the city. However, other locations will be inaccessible in most cases.
    Why exactly YandexGo

    Download from Google Play or App Store
    How to install - instruction
    Ordering a ride - detailed manual

    IMPORTANT! We strongly recommend purchasing a local Russian SIM card!

    In our guide, for any point or landmark we will provide a link to the YandexGo. By clicking this link, your device will open the application immediately (if installed), indicating this point as the destination or departure of your choice. Order a cab:
    TO Gazprom Arena » FROM Gazprom Arena

    VERY IMPORTANT. Make no mistake! If you request a taxi FROM Gazprom Arena by clicking these links, your driver will be waiting for you exactly in this point

    Allow an app to track your location to quickly find pick-up point. If you know the exact address (street, house number), enter the data manually. In this case Futbolnaya Alley, 8 (in Russian - Футбольная аллея, 8 - copy/paste)
    Change the origin or destination if necessary.

    If you want to point to a location on the map, move the map, but not the location icon! (the ground is movable, the icon is fixed)

    via website
    This method is more suitable if you plan your trip in advance. Of course, KIWITAXI also has a mobile application, but, nevertheless, conceptually, this is a different way of moving you in space. What is a taxi? This is 'here and now'. But a transfer is a careful planning of your vacation step by step. This is best done in a comfortable chair in front of a large screen.

    Ordering a transfer is not much different from ordering a taxi. But something need to remember. First, we always indicate in the booking form the starting or ending point of the trip. You only need to specify the second point of the route.

    Please note that the booking system cannot always find the absolutely exact address (in our case, the Petrogradsky District of St. Petersburg is indicated as one of the route points). But this is not a problem for you. What should you do if your hotel or your apartment address is not found?

    Just find your location on the map and copy and paste the coordinates into the booking form. For example, for a point in front of the main entrance to the stadium, it should look like this: 59.970611, 30.229028

    The reservation system will determine the area or town district to calculate the cost of the trip. Next, on the second stage of booking, enter the exact data (street, house number, etc.). In this case Futbolnaya Alleya, 8 (or in Russian - Футбольная аллея, 8 - copy/paste).

    That's not all! If the meeting point is not obvious, for example, this is a huge parking lot, also type the exact GPS coordinates 59.970611, 30.229028 and then wait for your driver at this place

    Do you have any questions?
    All answers (almost all) are here

    by phone
    ⓘ We highly recommend purchasing a local Russian SIM card!

    There are different situations in life. For example, you are in a small town or in other place where mobile apps don`t work or, maybe, the battery of your device has run out.
    In this case, you can call a taxi by phone and using not only your device, but for example from a cafe or store.

    To find out the taxicab carrier number, ask the local to help you. Or use the Russian analogue of Google. Copy and paste this search query ВЫЗВАТЬ ТАКСИ and add the name of the city (it`s possible in Latin) where you are now.

    While in St. Petersburg or on the surrounding areas, call this number: +7 812 366 6666
    Number for all Russia: +7 800 770 7074

    If the operator don`t speak English, several phrases in Russian will help you. Therefore, this method will be useful for you to order a taxi anywhere!
