This is the premier theatre in St Petersburg, a historic theatre mostly famous for its ballet productions. I love the glamorous interior, sitting for a performance is like being in audience with the royals.

Regardless of if you are a high society, ballet and opera lover, you'll be wise to at least walk around the gleaming Mariinsky Theatre. The classic light green and white facade will give you a sense of 19th century architecture. Coming here in the evening, you'll see patrons dressed in their finest gearing up for a night of culture.

The Mariinsky, and it's brand new addition (Mariinsky II) is the premiere theater in St. Petersburg. You can buy tickets directly on their website: http://www.mariinsky.ru/en

The theater is in the center, but outside of walking distance from Nevsky Prospect. There is no metro that services the area, so you'll need to take taxis. As my guest, I'll be more than happy to arrange reputable dispatch taxis for you. It's one of the advantages of not renting through somebody who lives abroad.

There are many good theaters in St. Petersburg, and Mariinsky is the most expensive. If you are on a budget, be sure to check Mussogorsky Theater, Hermitage Theater, and Alexdrinsky Theater for excellent shows in beautiful venues at much cheaper prices.

A trip to St. Petersburg is not complete without a visit to the historic Mariinsky Theatre. Home to the Kirov ballet, a longstanding cultural institution that has produced artistic geniuses ranging from Marius Petipa to Anna Pavlova to Serge Diaghilev and Mikhail Fokine to Baryshnikov to Vaganova. Seeing a concert here is more than seeing a ballet, it is experience a centuries-old Russian cultural tradition.
