We shall meet you at the airport. Please look for a person having a piece of paper with your name or a poster saying "Euler Institute".

Please send as soon as it is possible your arrival/departure data (date, time, flight number) if you did not send it yet.

Just in case, here is the algorithm which takes you to the Euler Institute and the hotel Nord from the airport. Take bus no. 13 or 31 or a minibus at Pulkovo International terminal (2) or no. 39 at Pulkovo domestic terminal (1). It will bring you to the metro station "Moskovskaya". Then it takes about 30 minutes to reach the stations "Petrogradskaya" (you don't have to change metro lines).

Then from the metro station you can either walk or take bus no. 1 or 46 or trolley-bus no.34 that goes to Pesochnaya Naberezhnaya and to the hotel Nord (two stops), or minibuses no.46, 76, 127, 136, 252, 298 (you should ask to stop before the Kamennoostrovskii bridge).


Those who come by train can easily use metro since every railway station has a nearby metro station. We shall meet the participants on personal agreement.


The registration desk will open at the Euler Institute on July 2nd from 9:00. Registration fee: it is 75 Euro (plus 15 Euro per accompany person in case we provide an official invitation needed for visa formalities). The first lecture will start at 10:00. Those of you who arrive later can register during the coffee-breaks.

Euros and US dollars are exchanged by all exchange offices; however, other currencies may cause some difficulties (bad rate or no bank to exchange). Now the average rate is 34.50/70 RBL for 1 euro and 25.50/60 RBL for 1 USD. Personal and Traveller's checks, as well as credit cards, are usually accepted at all major banks in the city. Be sure TO AVOID exchanging your currency NEAR exchange offices. An exchange office is located at Chapygina street, 2. Please, look on the map at http://www.pdmi.ras.ru/EIMI/pictures/map.jpg


The weather is variable. The average temperature in June is about 18C. So, usually it is about 20/22C during the day. It may be rainy. 10

Like in many other tourist centres in the world, there are pickpockets and thiefs who target foreign tourists. Don't carry large sums of money with you.
