Kovensky Yard

  Kovensky per. 14 ,   City Centre-2         13 May 2019
There is no exact English translation for Kovensky Yard actually. It is located on Kovensky per. and it is an eight-minute walk from Ploshchad Vosstaniya metro. On the way, you will come across the Nekrasovsky garden and then you will enter the residential area where the Kovensky Yard is situated. In the first yard, you can visit the salon which is a bit on the expensive side at 2,500Rbl for a haircut but they are well-equipped and they focus solely on haircut. A tattoo parlor is located inside the same room as the salon. If you are lucky enough, you might bump into voice-over artists who have come to dub in Russian language for Hollywood and European movies at Studio Moygolos. Pass through the tunnel-like passage and you will step into the second yard. It has a very rustic architecture with graffiti all over the walls. Do take a photo with the hanging bicycle and abandoned chopper on the way to the Late Breakfast Club. The Late Breakfast Club is a cosy hostel with rooms ranging from 500 to 2,500Rbl. The quirk is that the reception and kitchen are located in the same space. In the same area, there is Camorra Pizza where you can grab some delicious pizzas and even have some beers or ciders. The food and drinks can be savored on the first floor, upstairs and outside. If you are sitting on the outside bench, you will see the Yellow Yard bookstore which is the only bookstore in St. Petersburg specializing in Asian books. There are books on art, literature and even manga in various languages (including English). Books and movies blend well together: the cultural space of the second yard also has a little movie theater bearing the name Out Cinema. It shows movies in their original language with Russian subtitles. To conclude, the exact name of Kovensky Yard exists only in Russian but it is a very multicultural place with the staff conversant in English.
