Budget & TipsBudget & Tips

St. Petersburg offers a lot of free green spaces for your solo exercises if you are a jogger, Scandinavian walker or other. Russians generally prefer to train in sports clubs. It will be more difficult for non-Russians to join free outdoor group activities (such as gym or yoga classes). In winter, ice skating is very popular, with several nice open-air spots in the city. On sunny days, you tend to see more and more bikes. If you don't have bike paths, they ride on pavements which, fortunately, are often wide enough so that it is not too awkward or dangerous.

What's very localWhat's very local

The most popular activity is kayaking along the many canals that criss-cross the city, or even on the Neva for the more seasoned and extreme sports enthusiasts! More tranquil and just as local, Russian banyas are a genuine experience of relaxation and care for body and mind. Before going out for a show or an evening out, drop by one of the city's many beauty salons, which are frequented by both men and women.

To be bookedTo be booked

Apart from green spaces or infrastructures such as outdoor skating rink and swimming pool, it will be necessary to make an appointment for your physical exercise, care or relaxation sessions.
