I am planning a trip to SP next summer (hopefully June or July), and plan on renting a short-term appartment. I am trying to figure out which would be the best area/neighbourhood in which to rent as far as convenience to the varioius sites, and access to transit (to/from airport, within STP, to/from Pushkin, other palaces, etc.)
I am assuming that somewhere near the Gostinyy Dvor or Nevsky Prospekt subway stops would be the best, but can't seem to find appartments to rent in that area. There are a few that appear very nice on the Moika Embankmant, but I am concerned that they would be too far, and inconvenient. We will probably take transit to and from the airport, and don't want to be walking long distances with luggage.
Thanks for any help.
