Cherdak hudozhnika – A cozy place over the channel

When the winter falls over the city and the nights are dark and cold, I always enjoy the Artist attic at Lomonosova street. Cherdak hudozhnika is actually located in the attic of the Glass gallery, and I like climbing the stairs looking around at the fantastic creatures made from glass and other materials, and paintings by the local artists. Sometimes I also visit a corner with handmade stuff for the lower shopping budgets, to buy some funny stuff for myself or friends.

At the top of the stairs I find myself in a stylish living room with big mirrors, old-fashioned furniture and a romantic glass balcony overlooking the Griboedov channel. It is a pity there are not so many places with a panoramic view over the channels, they are so romantic during the day and so mysterious at night (especially from here when the candles are lit). I always feel like I’m in a fairy tale there.

The cafe positions itself as fondue bar, the menu says that fondue receipe and cooking technology was made under the supervision of the General Ambassador of Switzerland in St.Petersburg whom I belive we can trust in cheese fondue questions. Sipping a glass of wine and enjoying the views of St. Petersburg’s roofs all around you is really something special you cannot miss out on.
