E-MAIL

Dropping a note to your family and friends by e-mail is simple when you are in St. Petersburg. Most major hotels offer e-mail/Internet access from their Business Centers. There are also several public access terminals throughout the city. Here are some useful addresses:

BUSINESS COMMUNICATIONS CENTER at the Central Telephone Station

Address: Bolshaya Morskaya Ulitsa 3-5
Metro: Nevsky Prospekt/Gostiny Dvor, exit to Kanal Griboyedova
How to get there? From Nevsky Prospekt turn to Bolshaya Morskaya Ulitsa and walk 50 yards towards the huge yellow arch.

When in the building, walk straight through the hall and turn left to the Business Communications Center - you need window # 4. Their operators can type up your message or you can rent a terminal and type it yourself, or you can bring your message on a disk (which will save you both time and money).

Receiving e-mail - 1,000 rubles / $0.17 per 1 Kilobyte (approx. 1000 symbols) of information. Sending e-mail - 2,500 rubles / $0.43 per 1 Kilobyte of information.

If you want an operator to type up your message be prepared to pay 15,000 / $2.61 per page. If you want to type it yourself you can rent a computer for 25,000 rubles / $4.35 per hour (in 30 minute periods).

By the way. At the same building you can make a call home using your calling card (AT&T, MCI, Sprint, BT, etc.). Walk back towards the exit and turn right (that is left if you have just entered the hall).

About 100 yards down the street from the Central Post Office

NEVALINK counter at the St. Petersburg Railway Agency

Address: Naberezhanaya Kanala Griboyedova 24
Metro: Nevsky Prospekt/Gostiny Dvor, exit to Kanal Griboyedova

'TETRIS' Internet-Cafe run by DUX Internet provider (ISP)

Address: Ulitsa Cherniakhovskovo 23
Metro: Ligovsky Prospekt
Open daily 10 am to 10 pm, weekends 3 pm to 10 pm.
How to get there? Upon exiting the metro walk one block South, turn left to Romenskaya Ulitsa, walk one more block and turn right.

'Tetris' has nothing to do with the famous computer game, but offers coffee and snacks as well as Internet (and e-mail) access. It would be a good place to visit were it not for its inconvenient location.

Business/service centers of major hotels can also offer e-mail and Internet access. Please check with your hotel.
