St Petersburg University has introduced the Virtual Excursion. This is a project that helps you discover the University online.
You can see the main corridor at the Twelve Collegia that is the longest university’s corridor in the world, Petrovskii Hall that has preserved its original interior of the 18th century, Park of the Modern Sculpture, and St Peter and Paul’s Church to name but a few.
St Petersburg is famous the world over for its University. St Petersburg University is not a campus university, so it is not all located on one site. It is made up of many different buildings located around Vasilievskii Island, Central district, Admiralty district, and Petergof. Many of them are unique architectural monuments, say, Mikhailovskaia Dacha and Bobrinski’s Palace, that are harmonious in combining history and modernity.

The Twelve Collegia, as the main building of the University, demonstrates a notable example of Peter the Great’s architectural period and was built by Domenico Trezzini and А. F. Shchedrin in the 18th century. Initially, it was a place for the Russian government: Senate, Synod, and collegia. In 1838, it was commissioned to the University. Since it has been housing offices, Gorky Research Library, resource centres and laboratories of the Research Park. It is also a place where we hold important events: ceremonies, concerts, conferences, and meetings with famous people and those who come to visit the University.

 St Petersburg is a world-renowned city rich in history and culture and a Russia’s cultural capital. It is Russia’s window to Europe and home to many Russia’s leading university. St Petersburg’s architecture is an interesting mix of ages and styles of Rome, Venice, and Amsterdam. It is a city of romance and white nights. It has played a role throughout the history nationally and globally. St Petersburg is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and is well deserving of its status.

Today St Petersburg is an industrial megalopolis and a big seaport. St Petersburg is a city that is constantly transforming its infrastructure performance and is so favoured by its position as it is a great centre of activity and trade for many our partner countries. It is actively engaged in car industry development (Ford, Toyota, Nissan, Hyundai, GM), marine and shipbuilding industry (Admiralty Shipyard, Baltic Shipyard, North Shipyard, and others), power engineering industry, pharmacy, biotechnology, information and telecommunication technologies.

St Petersburg is home to many universities, with over 90 institutions of higher education and 350 research institutions. Many of them are internationally recognized as their alumni and academics are famous worldwide: outstanding scientists and inventors, prominent people in scienc
