Hi, sevenseven,

here's a link about Academy in English http://en.fc-zenit.ru/academy/academy_main/

To get to the Academy just take metro red line to "Akademicheskaya" stop then take a little walk - about 10-15 minutes. Use google-map to find exact map, I just typed in "Vernosti 21 Saint-Petersburg, Russia" and got http://maps.google.com/maps?q=Vernosti+21+saint-petersburg+russia&hl=en&ll=60.003878,30.410671&spn=0.024287,0.055189&sll=60.008579,30.273503&sspn=0.19427,0.441513&hnear=Ulitsa+Vernosti,+21,+Sankt-Peterburg,+Russia&t=m&z=14

Hi, 7fb,

>>taxi from the airport to the FC Zenit training ground

if you mean this youth academy (mentioned above) at metro station "Akademicheskaya" (red line), then it would take from 1 hour if the taxi takes you via around-city-speed-way ("okruzhnaya" road) to unpredictable (if something happens at that speed-way - there are very few exits to the city). If the taxi goes through the city - time is unpredictable at all since the city would be packed with traffic.

Is there any specific reason you want to take a taxi at that time of the day? I'd recommend taking metro - reliable, quick, no chance to get stuck in traffic-jam :)

There's also Zenit training ground for adult team. It's located near metro "Udelnaya" (blue line up north). It also doesn't make sense to take taxi to get there.

Not until they dig the metro all the way to the airport, I'm afraid...

(off: Marassa, be nice :) :):))

to 7fb: from the airport you have to take public bus #13 (if you arrive to Pulkovo-2 where most international flights arrive) or commercial mini-bus #13-K (K-13) to the nearest metro station "Moskovskaya". Bus cost 21 ruble per person and if you have too many luggage it cost 21 ruble per piece. Mini-bus is a bit more expensive and is not really convenient with big suitcases. It would take you about 15-30 minutes depends on the traffic to get from the airport to the metro. Then you take metro (blue line), change at "Technologicheskii institute" station to red line. The whole metro ride would take probably 45 minutes or so. Metro cost 25 rubles per person per ride and you buy a token at any metro station - it's marked in English, you can't miss it. Again, you have to pay 25 rubles per big suitcase.

p.s. if you arrive to Pulkovo-1 (sort of local flights airport) you would have to take bus # 39 or mini-bus #39-K. Pulkovo-1 is just about 10-15 minutes away from Pulkovo-2. So the rest is the same.

Svetakoshka

Thanks again for your detailed replys they have been a great help.

Could you tell us roughly how long the Metro and also taxis leaving at 2.00 o clock would take to get from the city centre to the Akademichskaya/football academy .

We are trying to decide between the Marmasa hoel which is nearer to the football or going to the town centre.

Hi, sevenseven,

taxi: from city center at 2 pm to "Akademicheskaya" - heavy traffic, unpredictable starting from 1,5 hours....

metro: from center to "Academicheskaya" station - about 30 minutes, (for rough measure take it as 1 metro stop is about 3 minutes) + 15-20 minute walk to the Academy

"the Marmasa hotel" - do you mean Marmara hotel http://www.marmara.spb.ru at Novorossiiskaya str, 26? Even though their web-site says "15 minute walk from metro "Ploshchad' Muzhestva" I think it would be a bit more or you would have to take bus/tram from metro to your hotel. How long are you in SPb for?
