St. Petersburg

St. Petersburg is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It is often referred to as the Venice of the North, but its beauty is really a brand all its own. Lavish interiors of the grandiose and skyline-dominating cathedrals, marvellous palaces and squares, fascinating suburbs present a unique monument of the Russian architecture. In early July, during romantic White Nights the city offers dazzling views and a vibrant cultural life that is second to none.


The Congress will take place in the "Twelve Colleges Building” of the St. Petersburg State University and in the old residence of the St. Petersburg Scientific Center RAS. Both buildings are located in central historical part of the city on the bank of the Neva River. The impressive red-and-white "Twelve Colleges Building" stretches for over four hundred meters and in fact consists of 12 separate buildings standing side by side. The complex was built between 1722 and 1742 and was intended to house twelve Russian Government Bodies of the time. The building of Academy of Sciences is an example of late classicism and is an organic part of the magnificent University Embankment, also featuring the world-famous Winter Palace.
