Top choice arts & crafts in Vasilyevsky Island

This is one of the city's largest 'creative clusters' with around 13,000 sq metres of space over several floors hosting a variety of art galleries, studios, fashion boutiques and designers. On the ground floor look out for the joint atelier of Snega Gallery and Slavutnitsa where designers specialise in making clothes and accessories based on traditional Russian costumes and patterns.

Also come here to see exhibitions and theatre, and to enjoy the view from its large rooftop terrace (where there's also a cafe); sometimes events are also held here.
