A literary lunch
The next destination point is the Literary Café on the Moika River Embankment.
This is where Pushkin came before his duel with D’anthès. It feels as though the interior of the Literary Café has not changed since then, with its heavy curtains, massive candleholders and black polished grand piano. This place is the best for lunch ‘à la St Petersburg’. Ask your waiter which was Alexander Sergeyevich’s favourite table. They will point it out with pleasure and you will probably be seated there for your lunch.
