Tchaikovsky Night at Grand Hotel Europe, St. Petersburg, Russia on 7/6/12.
We stayed for 4 nights at Grand Hotel Europe in St. Petersburg and on 7/6/12, we had dinner at the hotel in a very special event: Tchaikovsky Night with music and ballet.
A cultural and culinary landmark, Grand Hotel Europe has played a central role in the life of St Petersburg for over 130 years. A truly iconic Orient-Express hotel, it stands on Nevsky Prospekt among the city’s great architectural treasures—renowned for its impressive façade and decorative interiors.
Positioned adjacent to Arts Square, the hotel has strong associations with the worlds of theatre, music and dance. Past guests include Tchaikovsky and Pavarotti, crowned heads and world leaders. A stay here takes you straight to the heart of Russia, especially during the White Days of winter, when snow lies outside and a warm welcome awaits within.
