How to Get to the "St. Petersburg Stadium (Zenith Arena)
June 17, 2018 13:53


 The construction of the “St. Petersburg” stadium is a 10-year-long saga. It began in 2006 with the demolition of the legendary “Kirova Stadium” built on that spot in the middle of the 20th century, designed by the architect Aleksandr Nikolsky. The old stadium was a unique architectural monument - an artificial amphitheatre hill on the drained territory of Krestovsky Island.

Nevertheless, at the beginning of the new century it was decided to replace it with a more modern stadium that was conceived as the base of the “Zenit” football club. Hence came its first alleged name “Zenith Arena”.

The name of “St. Petersburg Stadium” is also temporary, meeting the requirements of FIFA. After 2018, it is planned to rename the stadium as “Krestovsky”. Thanks to the stadium, St. Petersburg residents received a new metro station called “Novokrestovskaya”. On the other side, a new Yakhetnny Bridge was built: thanks to this, Krestovsky Island can be accessed from Primorsky city district. You can reach it by trams or shuttle buses from metro stations “Staraya Derevnya” or “Chernaya Rechka”.

The main part of the bridge is pedestrian, but there is also a lane for special bus routes. Several special bus routes are organized for the officially registered fans. To use them for free, you need to present a fan’s passport (Fan ID), alongside with the ticket for the match.
