(company, flight, scheduled time, etc.) to Mrs.
Novikova, so that we could arrange a car from the
Euler Institute to pick you up at the "Pulkovo" international airport.
(Look for the poster "Euler International Mathematical Institute").
Alternatively, you may take the bus no. 13 at "Pulkovo" international
terminal, or a sity bus at the domestic terminal, which will bring you to
the metro station "Moskovskaya". It takes about 30 minutes to reach the
stations "Petrogradskaya" or "Chernaya Rechka" (by a direct train).
