Tourist Information Centre

The City Tourist Information Centre was established in 2000. A range of tourist information and advice is available at its offices. If thieves have picked your pocket, the English-speaking staff can help you file a police report - which is often needed if you plan to claim your loss back from your insurance company.

You can also call their Tourist help line (+7) 812 303 05 55, 24 hours a day for an English-speaking hotline who can tell you everything from the opening hours of the local supermarket to what to do if you've just landed in the drunk tank. Furthermore during the summer months there are numerous 'Tourist Angels' who speak many different languages and spend their hours wandering the streets around Nevsky prospekt and the main sights offering their help and advice.

There are 9 tourist information points within the city with the main one on ul. Sadovaya 14, metro Gostiny Dvor, tel. (+7) 812 310 28 22. Open 10:00 - 19:00, Sat 12:00 - 18:00. Closed Sun.
