A beautiful historic building
Jul 2019
It is a historic building located on Nevsky Prospekt in front of the Kazan Cathedral. The famous dome of the Book House / House of Singer Company in the Art Nouveau style is a great decoration of Nevsky Prospekt and the whole of St. Petersburg. Inside there is a bookstore that sells also many souvenirs. A historic place with the stunning architecture of Singer's house with bronze sculptures, colored dome lighting and gilded elements on the facade. The Book House occupies the basement, first and second floor. In addition to books there are all kinds of souvenirs and chocolates, and even toys. On the second floor, for the most part of it , there is the Singer cafe with a wonderful panoramic view of the Kazan Cathedral. It is worth drinking coffee in this amazing place. The whole building strikes with its subtle beauty.

Lovely building with good value and decent souvenirs

Lovely old building, with a vast bookshop inside. There was a restaurant that was unfortunately full when we arrived, but great fun exploring all the souvenirs downstairs.

Emblermatic building on Nevsky Prospekt
Dec 2019
Together with the Au Pont Rouge department store, my favorite St Petersburg commerce buildings. This one is the former building of the Singer company; it houses a bookstore occupying two floors, but it sells not only books, but all kinds of stationery, souvenirs, unusual snacks, rare books. A huge selection of postcards on the theme of St. Petersburg, but who sends postcards nowadays? Even though they sell. And also houses a cafe on the upper floor with a marvelous view of the Kazan Cathedral.

A beautiful building and wonderful things to buy
Oct 2019
This is a beautiful building opposite the Kazan Cathedral. It is a must visit because there are so many books and gifts to choose from, especially if you have to do last minute shopping.
