The Literary Cafe


The historical restaurant of Pushkin's Petersburg in 1816

In the heart of the city at the corner of Nevsky Avenue and Moika River Embankment there is the Literary cafe storing traditions of Petersburg of former times.

At the beginning of the XIX century on this place there was S. Wolf and T. Brenger's well-known candy store where well-known writers, poets, journalists met, where there was Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin and from where he went on fatal duel.
