Four Seasons makes a dazzling splash in Russia

Just two blocks from the Winter Palace and the Hermitage Museum, the Four Seasons St. Petersburg has opened, not only as one of the brand’s most stunning properties, but as the first Four Seasons in Russia. Within the restored 19th-century “Lion Palace” — immortalized in Alexander Pushkin’s poem The Bronze Horseman — the hotel features 177 rooms, many with irregular layouts thanks to the building’s triangular design. There is also a spa, Asian and Italian restaurants, a tea lounge and a bar specializing in vodka, champagne and cigars.

This St. Petersburg property won’t be the sole Four Seasons in Russia for long: a Moscow hotel is currently scheduled to open next year near Red Square.
