Going on a date in St. Petersburg

As one of the most romantic cities, St. Petersburg offers many nontrivial places you can pick to impress your sweetheart. Here is an overview of the most fun, interesting, and intimate venues and activities for dating.

A blind date

This is literally a blind date! You’ll have dinner at the Dans Le Noir? restaurant (2/4 Birzhevoy Pereulok) in complete darkness, but that’s the point – this way you can use your other senses and experience new, incomparable sensations, leaving aside the worries about your looks, blushing or awkward smiles. It’s a chance to concentrate on hearing, feeling, and understanding your crush. Edouard de Broglie and Etienne Boisrond launched this chain of restaurants in Paris in 2004, with the support of the Paul Guinot organization for the blind. Now, it has branches all over the Europe: Paris, London, Barcelona, St. Petersburg.

On cloud nine

What can be more romantic than ballooning over the beautiful city? Fresh air, impressive height, breathtaking views, a sense of freedom, a spirit of adventure – here is the best entourage to act chivalrously and win a lady’s heart. Your tour will start from the Pushkin town (1 Privokzalnaya Ploshchad)  and will take about 2-2.5 hours (available in good weather, of course) and cost about ≈$550, but it will certainly leave you with the most unforgettable memories.

A duelling rendezvouz

A shooting club (Zholotaya Pulya, 2v Konyushennaya Ploshchad) may at first seem like a weird place to take a date, but think about it, now is the chance go all Mission Impossible and impress your date by shooting a couple of targets. The cozy, memorabilia-filled club features shooting zones where you can use air-powered replicas such as Kalashnikov rifles, pistols to fire at regular targets such as balloons and candles, and test your reflexes with interactive computer-simulated games. Your 1 hour session includes unlimited shots, private lessons, the use of the rest zone with its board games, movies and music, and two liters of draft beer at the bar. So here’s your chance to show off your skills and maybe even teach your date as well.

Thrill and chill

This is a tour to a panic room at the Grand Canyon center (154 Prospekt Engelsa) where you are walking side by side in semi-dark narrow corridors, with deem lights and monsters hiding round the corner. Sounds a bit thrilling, yet promising: your lady, prostrating with fear, will be most vulnerable and ready to jump into your arms.

A date on a roof

The roofs of St. Petersburg’s center are a unique world, where people go on sightseeing tours, have parties, celebrate their birthdays and go on dates. Warm weather provided, most beautiful views of the historical center, the city night lights or the sun reflected in the domes create a most favorable atmosphere for a date. An average tour costs ≈$65 and lasts 1.5 hour.
