Ziferburg – Time-cafe with rusty chic

Ziferburg is a legendary time cafe in Petersburg. Here you pay for the time spent there (3 rubles per minute). Tea, coffee, cookies, internet use, events are included in this price.

The cafe is located at the historical mansion of Prince Golitsyn, in short its style can be described as rusty chic. Here they have preserved the furnishings of the mansion, complementing it with interesting interior items.

The space consists of two spacious halls. The windows of one of the rooms overlook the embankment of the Fontanka River. In warm weather, balconies are opened, and you can enjoy the sun, views of the river and the Mikhailovsky Castle.

The atmosphere is friendly and easy-going. If you’re in the mood, feel free to start a chat with the helpers (it’s how the staff is called here).

This place is very popular, primarily because of its photogenic interior. Whenever I come here, there is always someone taking pictures!

I sometimes come here to work when I want a special atmosphere and good coffee. In fact, the coffee is very tasty here, which is generally not typical for a time cafe.

Concerts, exhibitions, film screenings and lectures are held here on weekday evenings and on the weekends. Check their schedule on social networks.
