How to reach the conference place

The conference will take place at the Saint Petersburg Academic University (Research and Education Center), situated between metro stations "Politekhnicheskaya" and "Ploschad' Muzhestva" (see maps below).

The city of Saint Petersburg has well-developed transportation links to other Russian cities and large cities all over the world.

Train: If you arrive by train:
There are several large railway stations ("vokzals") in St. Petersburg. Trains from Moscow, other Russian cities to the south and south-east of St. Petersburg and some trains from Ukraine arrive at the Moskovskii vokzal, linked to the metro station Ploshchad' Vosstaniya. Most trains from the west and south-west (including West-European countries) arrive at the Vitebskii vokzal (metro station Pushkinskaya). Trains from the east and nord-east, as well as transit trains Helsinki—Moscow, arrive at the Ladozhskii vokzal (metro station Ladozhskaya). Trains Helsinki—Saint-Petersburg arrive at the Finlyandskii vokzal (metro station Ploshchad' Lenina). Baltiiskii vokzal (metro station Baltiiskaya) serves only regional trains.

See the metro scheme and maps below.

Plane: If you arrive by plane:
Passenger flights to St. Petersburg arrive at the Pulkovo international airport, located ca. 15 km south of St. Petersburg. From the airport, one can reach the Moskovskaya metro station by bus No. 39 or "marshrutka" (routed shared taxi, minibus) No. K-39. You will have to pay ∼25—60 roubles inside the car (depending on the route and your luggage). Alternatively, you can use an ordinary taxi (a cab). In the latter case, it is strongly recommended to order it upon arrival only at the official "Taxi Pulkovo" counters located in the arrival hall of the terminal (it should cost typically 1–2 thousand roubles).

More detailed information can be found at the Pulkovo airport Web site.
