Book House, St. Petersburg
Categories: Antique Stores, Gift & Specialty Shops, Shopping
Explore the collection of books, stationery, and souvenirs in an elegant Art Nouveau building at Book House. Designed by architect Pavel Suzor for the Singer Sewing Machine Company, this standout on Nevsky Prospekt features a glass tower topped by a glass globe sculpture, bronze sculptures, an elaborate door sign, and a marble staircase and Venetian decor on the inside. The building itself is as much of an attraction as the more than 150,000 books housed in the bookstore. Most books sold are in Russian, many by local authors, but the store also has an extensive English-language selection, where you can see which authors are being featured and pick up books about the history and attractions within the area. Visit the art department for drawing supplies, watch a play, or pop into one of the lectures or master classes offered for children and adults while you're browsing around. Be sure to take in the panoramic views of the area through the large windows in the store. Head to the first floor for the on-site cafe and restroom facilities.
