Within a leisurely stroll from Nevsky Prospect there is a historic building of the Helvetia Hotel, with origins dating back to the early 19th century.

Do you provide visa support documentation for foreign guests?
We got visa support documentation from the travel company that we booked the hotel through. They were very efficient. I'd imagine the hotel could do the same. Their service was excellent.
